As you’ve seen in the trailers for Love and Thunder, Mjolnir is back, but will Thor have to choose between this hammer and Stormbreaker?
In Thor: Love and Thunder the God of Thunder will have a complicated relationship with his magical weapons. For one thing, in Thor: Ragnarok he lost his hammer when he was destroyed by Hela. On the other hand, in Avengers: Infinity War, Thor, Rocket Raccoon and Groot went to Nidavellir to forge a new one, for which they had the help of Eitri, who created the Stormbreaker, and its hilt was forged with a branch of Groot. But now that Mjolnir is back, will Thor have to choose between it and Stormbreaker?

To resolve this doubt, let us turn to the words of Chris Hemsworth and Taika Waititi, who spoke about it at the conference with the world press and in which we were present.
According to Hemsworth, when asked what it was like to explore the relationship between the two battle instruments, he replied: “That was one of the funniest things. [Risas] that we were able to do in the movie… you know, the ex-girlfriend shows up dressed as Thor, that’s a shock… And suddenly, the weapon that I cherished so much, for so many years, now belongs to someone else. And then he has Stormbreaker who starts to get a little jealous… I don’t think it was in the original script, but it was fun.”
Thor will not have to choose between the Stormbreaker and the Mjolnir, but there will be a lot of tension involved
For his part, director Taika elaborated on the relationship that we will see on screen, where the “immaturity” of the Stormbreaker will make him feel somewhat displaced by the return of Mjolnir: “The Stormbreaker, I don’t know if it’s the way someone else he thought so, but you have to remember that it’s made from Groot’s arm. Well, you know, the mango at least… And yes Groot was like a teenager when he was made…. So we felt that Stormbreaker was a young man who had just been born about five or six years ago. He had to feel a bit like a teenager and it was like he was going through changes… And yes, he had mood swings.”
