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!

Also rejoining Thor are his fellow Asgardians, Lady Sif, gatekeeper Heimdall and Warriors Three, as they encounter mythical Norse creatures among evildoers.
