There are of course several new H.D. versions of the clip online at this point, I will offer links to none, as I follow the rules....but by now anyone interested should be on You Tube.


It looks pretty dead on to me, I think the handle could have been a tad bit longer, but honestly it never was very long in any 616 comic, and that is the best Thor out there.

He shouldn't have to weild it like a sledge.... thats part of the power of it all.

It looked cool but still the hammer head looked WAY WAY too big and the handle too short... it looks like it'll be like a heavy slug

I'm actually much more impressed with the much lower budget, more accurate Hulk movie thor's hammer:

how is that hammer up there more accurate when the hammer in the comics is silver or grey in color and essentially a big square block...the one up there has rounded off edges and is almost black in color??

and lets not even talk about what he's wearing....

Are you for real, the movie design is like 99% 616 accurate. That looks like the hammers people used to use to make things out of metal.

Just viewed the image again. Handle looks too short and skinny. Then again I'm an old fart who has been reading Thor since the 70's and I picture Thor using a bulkier hammer.

an absolutely brilliant issue which shows the pure power of mjolnir.
Hulk would never grab a female bystander and threaten to crush her, nor would he refuse a fight out of fear.

He is also worthy

I thought Mjolnir was supposed to be a short handled weapon.

Yeah it is, but for Marvel's CLASSIC version it has a 3 to 4 handed handle.
Coipel the newer artist had been drawing Mjolnir's handle about two hands long.

dude thats the ultimate avengers cartoon, the ultimate universe based cartoon movie. i had alot of trouble with that scene. i read it as more about hulks endless strength, the angrier hes getting at not being able to pick it up, the stronger hes getting, rather than hulk being worthy. hes having alot of difficulty with it. i doubt a raging destructive force would be truely worthy of weilding the hammer.

the only mainstream characters i can recall of being worthy of being able to lift mjolnir were cap, beta ray bill, odin, wonder man and thunderstrike.


and in the dc vs marvel comic wonder woman picks it up but then drops it cos it wouldnt be a fair fight.


i dont think we'll see any villians able to lift it in the avengers films, it just defeats such a mammoth task and character trait of thors far too easily

Guys the haft is meant to be short. Loki made sure through trickery the hammer handle would be short so that Thor could only hold it with one hand and not with both.

There is NO such scene in that movie....Thor beats the crap out of him with the hammer and it barely slows him down....Hulk then has to struggle to pick it up and beans Thor with it, thus knocking hin out of the battle

Huh. Gotta look that issue up and see how that happened. I never would've pegged Simon as being worthy of Mjolnir.

Dude, that scene's totally in there. It's stupid, but it's in there. I'm just glad that it doesn't count for s*** outside of that one terrible movie.

It's weird to be such a huge Thor fan and not be angry about something now that we're getting more details about the movie. I wonder if there's something wrong with me.

ive been pretty happy with everything the marvel movies have done with the lead up and happy with what ive heard of thor.

i dont get vicious over small things like most fans on here cos i realise how lucky we are to have these characters brought to the screen in such good ways
