The second official trailer for Avengers: Endgame has dropped and the good folks of the internet are going over it with a fine-toothed comb. Easter eggs are being vigorously searched for as other objects in plain sight are being carefully dissected. One such object has caught the eye of hundreds and has hyped up fans for a possible spoiler. In the new YouTube trailer shared by Marvel Entertainment, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) can be seen summoning his weapon in front of Captain Marvel (Brie Larson). A frenzy began on Twitter and Redditt with some swearing this is Mjolnir, Thor's original hammer.
"Saw the Avengers: Endgame trailer....how did Thor get Mjolnir (the hammer) back?" one fan tweeted.
Sorry kiddos, it's not Mjolnir. After careful inspection of the trailer and by freezing the video frame by frame, it's more than obvious that Thor has summoned Stormbreaker to his hand, and not the classic hammer.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will remember that Mjolnir was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok by Thor and Loki's (Tom Hiddleston) sister Hela (Cate Blanchett). Without hesitation, the Goddess of Death crushed the hammer to pieces in one hand, and it has never been seen since.
The scene in the trailer appears to be in the aftermath of Infinity War, based on Captain Marvel's presence and the length and color of Black Widow's (Scarlett Johansson) hair. At this point in time, Mjolnir would still be destroyed, but it's possible the hammer will make an appearance in the movie as the Avengers are expected to time travel.
