Thor: Ragnarok — What will the God of Thunder wield next?


In Thor: Ragnarok, the titular character underwent a change in weapon. What could he use next?

During the events of Thor: Ragnarok, Hela destroys Mjolnir, which causes Thor to go on a journey to find worthiness within himself. It’s possible that Thor may just use whatever he can get his hands on, as he did in Ragnarok.

However, it’s also possible we don’t see Thor use any weapon, instead wielding lightning as he did in the final battle against Hela. Knowing Marvel, they have Thor use an established weapon or better yet, they may take the opportunity to insert an easter egg for longtime fans.


The shortest, most boring route to take on the journey to Infinity War. Perhaps Thor will use his powers as King of as Asgard to reforge the storm hammer. However, this seems to be the least interesting option and would ruin the impact of Hela breaking Mjolnir in Thor Ragnarok. It’s the loss of his beloved hammer that drives Thor to new heights as a hero.


Stormbreak is the hammer of one Beta-Ray Bill, a horse looking alien who was deemed worthy to wield the power of Thor by Odin in the comics. The interesting implication of Stormbreaker’s appearance is that it may involve the appearance of one, Beta-Ray Bill, one of Marvel’s intergalactic heroes and a warrior deemed worthy by Odin. While he has not been introduced to the MCU, it would be a fun easter egg if Stormbreaker were to be chosen as Thor’s next weapon.


Gungnir is the spear of Odin. A powerful weapon in its own right, Gungnir would be a great weapon for Thor to wield, now that the God of Thunder has begun to resemble Odin. One-eyed and spear in hand, Thor would conjure a striking image going into battle with Thanos looking like the Allfather.


Hofund is the sword of Heimdall, the watching protector of Asgard. If Heimdall doesn’t join his king on a quest to stop Thanos, perhaps he will allow Thor to wield this powerful weapon, one that even drew the attention of Hela during the events of Ragnarok.


Jarnbjorn is a mighty ax from the Asgardian Armory, and a fun possibility for Thor’s next weapon. An old favorite of the Odinson of Marvel Comics, Jarnbjorn was used by a young Thor in Jason Aaron’s Thor: God of Thunder and once again when the Odinson was made unworthy. While not as iconic as the hammer, it wouldn’t be surprising to Jarlborn make its way to the silver screen.
