Shooting for Thor: Ragnarok has officially begun, as confirmed by the actor on Instagram. However, the latest Instagram post by Chris Hemsworth shows the actor grasping a hammer as he promises "big and little changes" that may pertain to the mighty Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, in Thor: Ragnarok. This post may appear insignificant, but it can be hypothesized that Mjolnir will be remade into a smaller form (perhaps to accommodate a certain character who also wields a hammer) or that the hero loses Mjolnir or becomes unworthy of it or worse, it gets destroyed.
Should the hammer be destroyed, we (the fans) will surely miss it. Or if Thor is deemed unworthy by the hammer, all of us will no doubt shed tears as we see the God of Thunder can lift the hammer no longer (which mirrors the first Thor film).
Whatever the case, Thor had better find himself a replacement and quick if he is to fight The Hulk at the Grandmaster's arena in the upcoming movie.
Another clue that pertains to Thor perhaps losing or breaking his hammer is in the Instagram post where he confirmed shooting has begun — one of the hashtags states #wheresmyhammer.
Whether or not Hemsworth is teasing us as to the hammer’s fate is unclear for the time being. However, further details about the movie are expected to be disclosed at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. Hopefully we'll learn more soon. Go see Thor: Ragnarok on November 3rd, 2017 to see if Mjolnir is changed or not.
