Why Jane Foster Wields Broken Mjolnir In Thor: Love & Thunder

Jane Foster wields a broken Mjölnir in Thor: Love and Thunder – here’s why. Natalie Portman makes her return to the MCU after her last proper appearance in Thor: The Dark World. Now, she’s set to become a superhero herself, assuming the persona of Mighty Thor. However, her mystical hammer appears to have been broken and just patched back together, an observation that has since been a point of conversation for the public.

Director Taika Waititi marks his MCU return with Chris Hemsworth’s fourth solo film as the God of Thunder. Following the success of 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, which both revived the sub-franchise and revitalized fans’ interest in the Avenger, Marvel Studios teaming them up again for Thor: Love and Thunder only makes sense.

Waititi is going bigger with his upcoming film by assembling an expanded ensemble that includes some members of the Guardians of the Galaxy, in addition to the debut of Russell Crowe’s Zeus and Christian Bale’s villain, Gorr the God Butcher. Arguably, the most exciting part of the flick is Portman’s introduction as Mighty Thor.

Marvel Studios has purposefully kept details of her arc in Thor: Love and Thunder under wraps. While fans wait for the film’s official trailer, new tie-in merchandise offered the best look at Jane Foster’s broken Mjölnir, but it still doesn’t explain why she wields one that’s previously damaged. Due to this, the hammer cannot be the one featured in Avengers: Endgame.

Aside from the fact that Captain America (Chris Evans) returned it to its original timeline, that one was also intact. Instead, this one could be the Sacred Timeline’s Mjölnir — the one that Hela (Cate Blanchett) destroyed at the beginning of Thor: Ragnarok. Somehow, it was put back together, perhaps with the help of other Asgardians – or maybe even master blacksmith, Eitri (Peter Dinklage), who created it in the first place.

In Thor: Ragnarok, after Hela destroyed Mjölnir, it didn’t seem like anyone took the time to gather the pieces of the broken hammer. However, it’s also worth noting that after the events of the film, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and half of the Asgardian refugees settled in the same place while Thor dealt with Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Avengers: Infinity War.

Chances are that the remnants of Mjölnir were still in the area when they arrived. Perhaps, they might have even taken it as a sign that it’s the correct spot to establish New Asgard on Earth. Otherwise, it’s also possible that Jane was able to acquire the pieces of the hammer, and her worthiness banded it back together. After all, she’s previously spent time in Tromsø, Norway after Loki’s (Tom Hiddleston) in The Avengers, which is in the same country as where New Asgard has been established.

Whatever the case may be, it’s clear that Marvel Studios want Jane to wield the same Mjölnir that Thor used before. This makes sense as taking another hammer from another reality, while possible, sounds like a lazy way to execute Mighty Thor’s arc. Although the MCU is actively tackling the multiverse at this point, Thor: Love and Thunder may not even delve into the idea but rather focus on its own standalone narrative instead.
