Closeup On Slightly Redesigned Mjolnir From The Set Of THOR: THE DARK WORLD
While we've a caught a glimpse of 'Thor' Chris Hemsworth wielding the hammer once again in previous set photos, a new mysterious image has surfaced offering on closeup on Mjolnir!
Made from the sacred metal Uru and forged in the heart of a dying star, as the all-father Odin insists, Mjolnir had subtle changes in Marvel's The Avengers, since its first appearance in Thor last year. And given that the God of Thunder will return in Thor: The Dark World, a slightly new design for the mighty hammer should be expected as well. While previous Dark World set photos offered a glimpse of Mjolnir, wielded by the star Chris Hemsworth, a rather mysterious set photo (via @LHamston and @Sparky4Ever84 ) has surfaced highlighting the subtle changes. With the only difference seemingly around the handle's endpoint, check it out below!
