When you think of the character Thor, odds are his hammer is one of the top things that come to mind — and with good reason. The God of Thunder’s hammer has been his weapon of choice battle after battle, which makes Chris Hemsworth’s current feelings about that hammer, in a word, distressing.
In the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, we see Hela (Cate Blanchett) seize Thor’s hammer. And we also see the Avenger with much shorter hair (so long, long locks!). Needless to say, things are very different, those being just a couple examples. And that’s exactly what the creative team wanted.
And one change he welcomed in particular was the loss of Thor’s iconic hammer.
Okay, we hear his point. But for our part, we do miss the hammer (and the wig and the old costumes). That said, there’s much more new and exciting stuff to look forward to when Thor: Ragnarok lands in theaters on November 3rd.
