Not long ago, a set of LEGO leaks went live for the Marvel film. One of them is called “The Search for Thor’s Weapon” and contains figures of Thor, Rocket, and Groot. The trio are said to head to Nidavellir to get Thor the Dwarven-forced battle axe Jarnbjorn, so the Avenger won't have to fight Thor with his bare hands. That is, unless he wants to...
