(Some relatively minor spoilers ahead for "Avengers: Infinity War.")
"Avengers: Infinity War" is absolutely chock-full of fascinating new wrinkles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and few of those wrinkles are more interesting than Thor's (Chris Hemsworth) new ax, Stormbreaker. Det er ikke bare en super kraftig ledning eller Thor's tordnende evner, men det kan også summon the bifrost, og dermed let Thor gå hvor han vil i de ni Realms og videre.
You're probably tempted to think – as pretty much everyone did – that Stormbreaker has a rule similar to that of Thor's hammer Mjolnir, which was destroyed by Hela (Cate Blanchett) back in "Thor: Ragnarok." That rule is that only those who are worthy are able to hold it. In the MCU, only one character other than Thor demonstrated that worthiness ̵
If you assume that Stormbreaker also has that rule, then you would assume that means Great Vin Diesel) is also "worthy" because he was able to lift Stormbreaker when he sacrificed his arm to make its handle. But you would be wrong, according to Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of "Avengers: Infinity War."
On Friday night, the Russos participated in the Vudu Viewing Party of the movie, in which fans at home watched "Infinity War" at the same time and asked the Russos questions on Twitter using the #VuduViewingParty hashtag as they watched. And one fan asked, "So in the forge scene, Groot was able to lift Stormbreaker. Would that make big worthy with Thor and Vision? "
Not so fast, the Russos said via the official @Avengers Twitter account. "Mjolnir requires worthiness, not Stormbreaker."

That is a ] very interesting bit of information for a number of reasons. Stormbreaker does exist in the comics, and while many fans have assumed it carries the test of worthiness like Mjolnir, that fact has never been confirmed or denied by the comics themselves.
This will not settle that debate, because the MCU has often different rules from the comics, but the idea that anyone, good or evil, could theoretically use Stormbreaker could have some very interesting ramifications for the future.
But just because you do not necessarily have to be "worthy" to hold Stormbreaker does not mean that it would be easy for any random Joe to use it. As Thor claimed ominously in "Infinity War," the weapons of Nidavellir have side effects for those who "lack the strength to wield them."

That five minutes when they tried to turn Jennifer Garner into an action star went about as well as it should have.

Just a total mess, incoherent from the word "go." After losing director of the first two X-Men movies, Brian Singer, to the first Superman reboot attempt, replacing Matthew Vaughn, gave way to the eventual director Brett Ratner, who might have killed the superhero genre entirely, "Spider-Man" not blowing up the box office.
