In the movie, Infinity War, we had seen Thor wielding a new weapon-the Stormbreaker. But now, a few new concept artworks have revealed that this was not Marvel’s first choice for Thor. One image shows Thor and Rocket Raccoon tag teaming in Wakanda. The edited and cropped version of this image had been shown in the pre-release sneak peek photos for the movie, and the full image has also been uploaded, and this shows the Jarnbjorn.
This is the full resolution concept artwork that has been released by Marvel Studios:
The second photo shows a lot more of Thor, and he is shown be wielding a weapon of the Gods. The weapon that had almost killed the Mad Titan had debuted a really long time ago. This film shows Thor wielding the Stormbreaker ax and not the Jarnbjorn. This would mean that the God of Thunder was supposed to wield the former but actually had the latter weapon. The Stormbreaker was a gift from Odin to Eric Masterson, and he had impressed the All-Father.
Thor had last mad an appearance in the movie, Avengers: Infinity War and the synopsis reads:
“Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and the rest of the Avengers unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos. On a mission to collect all six Infinity Stones, Thanos plans to use the artifacts to inflict his twisted will on reality. The fate of the planet and existence itself has never been more uncertain as everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment.”
