AceShowbiz - Chris Hemsworth's Thor apparently will have a new weapon when he returns to beat the enemies in "Avengers: Infinity War", given the fact that Mjolnir gets destroyed in "Thor: Ragnarok". As seen in some trailers for the third "Thor" film which is due out on November 3, the God of Thunder's hammer is destroyed by Cate Blanchett's Hela.
In a recent interview to promote "Thor: Ragnarok", Hemsworth teased what would replace Mjolnir in "Infinity War". "You'll have to see, I can't give that away," he said, adding, "But there is something pretty exciting coming." The Australian actor promised, "I think the fans will know and love and be excited for it," though he refused to reveal more.
In "Thor: Ragnarok", Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok - the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization - at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger - the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)!
Meanwhile, "Infinity War" is the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before. The third "Avengers" film has the big bad Thanos as its main villain, with Josh Brolin attached to play. He first appeared in James Gunn's 2014 film "Guardians of the Galaxy" and later in Joss Whedon's 2015 film "Avengers: Age of Ultron".
"Infinity War" also stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Paul Bettany, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Wong and Tom Hiddleston.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the third "Avengers" film is scheduled to arrive in the United States on May 4 next year. "Avengers 4", which is currently filming with the Russo brothers returning to the helmers' seats, is set for a May 3, 2019 release.
