'Avengers: Infinity War' – You Do not Have To Be Worthy To Use Thor's New Ax

(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 ̵

1; Vision (Paul Bettany), in "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

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."

    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.

    There might have been a good movie in here somewhere – the cast (Michael B Jordan, Miles Counter, Kate Mara) certainly warranted one. But this Frankenstein of a movie is a behind-the-scenes horror story, and you can see it in the totally disjointed final product.

    Tim Story's first "Fantastic Four" is just black of there, challenging you to remember it exists. With Chris Evans, who played the Human Torch here, going on to embody Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that gets tougher every year.

    This is the Punisher as a straight revenge thriller, and it's not bad. Thomas Jane performs admirably, but the whole thing is missing that extra something that would have elevated it beyond the standard genre fare. Setting it in Tampa did not help.

    A notorious flop at the box office and, yeah, it's not exactly "good." But now, 30 years removed from its premiere, "Howard the Duck" is pretty fun as a relic of the '80s.

    We may never figure out what went wrong with Marc Webb's Spider-Man Duology, but his choice of Andrew Garfield to play Peter Parker is still brilliant. It just sucks that this movie does not really make any sense.

    The beginning of the current wave of theatrical superhero movies, "X-Men" was kind of a cheapie and it showed. Novel at the time, now it just comes off as unremarkable mid-budget action fare as Fox was merely sticking its toe in the superhero waters. Timid.

    It's sometimes hard to remember that this one counts as part of the MCU, since it placed Ed Norton in the Dr. Banner role since inhabited by Mark Ruffalo in the "Avengers" movies. It's also hard to remember because it's generally not memorable.

    The fantasy Marvel movie is directed by Kenneth Branagh, who covers the whole movie in canted angle shots and theatrical stylings. It's pretty boring, too, but at least it looks cool.

    More of the same impossible-to-follow hack-n'-slash plotting from the previous movie, offset by Andrew Garfield continuing to be awesome and Jamie Foxx going way over the top as the big bad.

    A big step up from the first "X-Men", both in production values ​​and quality, it still lacks much in the way of energy. Which is inexcusable when you've got Alan Cumming as the teleporting mutant Nightcrawler all over your movie.

    Sam Raimi truly assembled the prototypical superhero movie with this first entry in the "Spider-Man" franchise, in 2002. Like "X-Men" before it, "Spider-Man" is a bit underwhelming today, but unlike "X-Men" it was proud of its nerd roots.

    Could have been a bizarre ironic summer classic if it were structured like a real movie and had any character development whatsoever. Instead it's just a shot of visual adrenaline that I'll probably want to revisit at some point – but not when I'm sober

    For the sequel, they tapped the "Crank" director duo known as Neveldine / Taylor. It was an inspired choice, because "Spirit of Vengeance" was just as useful as you would hope a PG-13 comic book movie would be. Shame that it was apparently stressful enough to break up the tandem of Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor.

    Disney Animation Studios made a Marvel movie, and it's really sweet. Sure, it's the kiddie version of Marvel, but that does not prevent it from being a wholly satisfying experience.

<div class=

    20th "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2"

    An improvement on the first film, and an absolute delight from moment to moment – but it never quite coalesces into a coherent whole because so many subplots distract from the core story and rob it of its emotional impact. Would be a top 5 comic book movie if it had just ruled in the plot.

    19th "Hulk"

    In 2003 the modern wave of superhero movies was still in its infancy, and Ang Lee – still the best filmmaker to do a comic book movie – got experimental with "Hulk." And what he made was an incredible melodrama with visual styling meant to monkey comic book panels.

    The first "X-Men" movie that could be described as "fun." It's basically two movies crammed into one, story-wise, but director Matthew Vaughn's touch is so breezy and enjoyable that it totally works anyway, thanks in large part to a brilliant cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy.

    Not quite the best "Spider-Man" movie, but still an absolute delight, with a cast full of scene stealers. Michael Keaton as the Vulture makes for one of the best Marvel villains ever.

    While you may get whiplash from the Deadpool sequel's occasional very serious and emo scenes, the rest of the movie is thoroughly delightful, somehow managing to be even funnier – and more hilariously violent – – than the original.

    10th "Ant-Man and the Wasp"

    It's ever so slightly frustrating that this one does not fully integrate into the "Infinity War" situation, but even so it's thoroughly a delight. Evangeline Lilly is so good at the Wasp that I'm retroactively irritated that she did not do the suit in the previous "Ant-Man" movie.

    ninth "Doctor Strange"

    If it were not hamstrung with all the required elements of an origin story, "Doctor Strange" might have been the best Marvel movie ever. That's the power of the astonishing visual imagination on display here. People love to talk about the nebulous concept of capturing some long lost childlike sense of wonder though the magic of cinema – "Doctor Strange" is one of the only movies I've watched as an adult that really accomplishes that.

    This is a movie that fully understands its main character and taps into what made him such a captivating figure for so long. Yeah, Peter Parker's a superhero, but he's also a college kid working a minimum wage job to make rent while also taking university physics classes. Peter buckles under the pressure, something we can all relate to.

    3rd "Avengers: Infinity War"

    You could certainly make the argument that "Infinity War" does not really hold on as a complete movie on its own, because it starts with the second act. But I do not care. The culmination of this ten-year shared universe experiment should stand on the shoulders of the movies that came before it. Det faktum at det pakker så en profesjonell emosjonell punch, men er det som virkelig gjør det job.

    first "Logan"

    James Mangold's small-scale western is a game changer for the entire superhero genre, daring to defy pretty much the standard by which you expect these movies to operate. It's just a great movie by any normal standard. Where "Civil War" elevated the genre, "Logan" is chosen instead to be something else completely and we are all the better for it.

    With over 30 years of theatrically released Marvel movies, it's always a good time to rank 'em all, from "Howard the Duck" to this summer's "Avengers: Infinity War," "Deadpool 2" and "Ant-Man and the Wasp."
