‘Thor: Love and Thunder’: Jane Foster’s Mjolnir is very different from Thor’s

The most recent preview of the film showed a feature of the historical hammer that had not been seen before and that differentiates it from the one used by Thor in previous productions.


One of the most anticipated movies of the year, and perhaps of the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the years, continues to generate news from its first trailer. The clip of Thor: Love and Thunder not only served to meet Gorr The Butcher God, played by Christian Bale, to continue dimensioning the personal path that Thor will go through, but also to discover new features of Mjolnir and Jane Foster, in the skin of Natalie Portman, with the mantle of Goddess of Thunder.

Although the actress’s presentation took place in the teaser, that was just an appetizer for what can be enjoyed in the trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder. It was known, from director Taika Waititi ‘s voice, that Jane Foster would return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to become Mighty Thor. The advances already show that the character will have a specialty within the story and that Mjolnir will also be key.

After Hela destroyed the hammer with one hand during Thor: Ragnarok (Taika Waititi, 2017), the weapon was not seen again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe until this version presented the fourth film about the character. Although its full power cannot yet be measured, nor is it known what happened so that it was forged again, there is a detail that is representative of the new characteristics that Mjolnir will have.

Within the Marvel mythology, weapons are part of those aspects that are attractive and permanently associated with one character or another. Just as Tony Stark is noted for his armor and Captain America is historically associated with his shield, Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth, is linked with Mjolnir. Although it was not always so. From the separation in the first film of the character to the destruction of the hammer in the third.

Added to this context is the appearance of Jane Foster as the new bearer of the mantle in Thor: Love and Thunder. The most recent trailer for the movie showed a scene where the character is fighting on Olympus. During combat, she does not throw a single piece, as Thor did at the time, but all the fragments to which the weapon was reduced. What happens next? All those pieces are grouped. A little earlier, even in the teaser, Mjolnir was seen to have distinct cracks and light details that remained somewhat compact.

Meanwhile, Thor is expected to continue using the Stormbreaker he brings from Avengers: Infinity War. The trailers seen so far for Thor: Love and Thunder have not yet revealed if Jane Foster and Thor will face Gorr The Butcher God together. Both characters will have several moments in which, perhaps, the old relationship flourishes.
