The latest film in the Thor franchise was filled with shocking developments for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but few were as devastating as the destruction of Mjolnir.
To commemorate the loss in Thor: Ragnarok, actor Chris Hemsworth posted a video to his Instagram page memorializing his trusty hammer. Check out the clip above, and be sure to hang your head in a moment of silence for the fictional, inanimate object.
Warning: Minor spoilers for Thor: Ragnarok below.
The clip contains lines of dialogue and footage from the new Thor film, as well as footage from previous Marvel films to give it a 'greatest hits' feel. It's also kind of disrespectful in that it shows Hela actually destroying the hammer, which isn't typically included in these kinds of videos.
One of the funniest scenes in Thor: Ragnarok is hilariously included in the memorial clip, taking place a few scenes after the God of Thunder is captured on Sakaar. After making a new friend in Korg, played by director Taika Waititi, Thor starts talking about the destruction of his hammer and how important it was to him, stirring a few funny exchanges and one of the dirtiest sex jokes ever included in a Marvel Studios movie.
It's likely that Marvel itself made the clip, considering Hemsworth posted it and the professional quality of it. Perhaps it will be included in a special feature when Thor: Ragnarok releases on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD in the future.
Mjolnir is made of a special Asgardian metal called Uru, though the hammer itself is special for its blessing from Odin. Previous films established that it gave Thor his powers, allowing him to control lightning as well as fly.
Though Mjolnir is destroyed, it might not be the end for the mystical hammer. The chunks of Uru metal still reside on Earth, and perhaps with the help from some geniuses like Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, Thor can get a better weapon out of it.
Thor: Ragnarok is in theaters now.
