This article contains SPOILERS for Thor Ragnarok.
Thor: Ragnarok actor Chris Hemsworth has shared an emotional and touching video in tribute to his character’s destroyed hammer, Mjolnir. Comic book superheroes are often defined by their armor and weapons. Whether it be Captain America’s patriotic shield, Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit, or Thor’s hammer, many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s key figures are rarely seen without their favored weapon at hand.
Unfortunately for the God of Thunder, Thor: Ragnarok features the destruction of the famous Asgardian hammer, Mjolnir, at the hands of the Goddess of Death, Hela. Mjolnir’s destruction was a key moment in both the marketing campaign for Ragnarok and, indeed, the movie itself, and as the hilarious Korg points ...

This year, Logan introduced a promising new face to 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise, while also bringing Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Professor Xavier’s (Patrick Stewart) time as mutant heroes to a close. An inspired take on several iconic stories, including Old Man Logan and the mutant-depowering “M-Day,” the gritty genre-bent film bid a bittersweet farewell to X-Men leader and general badass killing machine Wolverine.
