Certificate of origin and authenticity.

Thor’s hammer known as Mjölnir is based on Norse mythology and was used in the production of the movie “Avengers: Endgame” by both actor Chris Hemsworth as Thor and actor Chris Evans as Captain America.

Notes:

Thor’s Hammer is certainly one of the most iconic objects seen in the Marvel Universe and beyond. Today everyone knows this hammer thanks to the Infinity Saga in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where it is seen a lot with a very relevant presence in many movies. This one comes specifically from the last movie of the saga “Avengers: Endgame” which is currently the highest-grossing film of all time. It was used in the production of the movie both by actor Chris Hemsworth as Thor and by Captain America played by actor Chris Evans. This unmistakable design was created by artist and concept designer Charlie Wen and then realized by Propshop Model Makers. The man that decided the final look of the hammer and worked as the liaison between the manufacturing world and the design world is Russell Bobbitt, the property master of Marvel Studios. The work behind this design and its realization was huge as Bobbitt recalls in an interview, explaining the different steps after the look was decided on paper, “then we had to figure out what size would look good in Thor’s hand. We had three camera tests solely for that purpose. I’m not kidding. It was that intense. Once we had the size and scale, we started tweaking the look of it: Should it be a little darker, a little lighter, should it be shiny, should it be dull, is the leather on the handle aged appropriately, should the little strap on the end be there or not be there?”. It was just after answering to this questions that the work of Propshop Model Maker studio began and the three dimensions hammer was finally realized. Thor’s hammer come from Norse mythology and it has its own name, Mjölnir which means “the crusher” as we can imagine from what we have seen in the many movies featuring it. Mjölnir, as part of the Marvel Universe first appears in Journey into Mystery #83 (August 1962), it was created by writer Stan Lee and immediately established as the main weapon of the Thunder god Thor Odinson. Mjölnir is forged by Dwarven blacksmiths, and is composed of the fictional Asgardian metal uru. The side of the hammer carries the inscription “Whosoever holds this hammer, if he be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor”. As one of the most formidable weapons known to man or god, it is described as impacting with sufficient force to “level mountains”, creating vortices and forcefields, emitting mystical blasts of energy, controlling electromagnetism. When Thor calls for it verbally or mentally, it will return to his hand despite any intervening obstacles or distance, even traveling through planets to return to him. When it is deliberately thrown by Thor, he is able to control its trajectory. If dropped or set aside, it takes a fixed position, from which it cannot be moved except by a ‘worthy’ individual.
