Hela (Cate Blanchett) might be crushing Mjolnir to pieces once she arrives in Thor: Ragnarok later this year, however it seems like Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) hammer from the very first Thor movie is going down a different road next month.
According to a report by Bleeding Cool, authentic superhero movie props are going to be auctioned off in London next month, and this includes Mjolnir from the 2011 Thor. One of the top items at the auction, the hammer is expected to sell at £20,000 – 30,000, which is basically around $25,000 - $40,000.
Another item set around the same estimates as Mjolnir is The Joker’s (Jack Nicholson) costume that was worn in Batman.
Other items to be included in the bidding are Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) Hero Helmet from James Gunn’s 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy, the Flying Tunic of Superman (Christopher Reeve) from the 1987 Superman IV: The Quest of Peace, the helmet and tunic of Magneto (Ian McKellen) from the 2000 X-Men, the top hat and gloves of The Penguin (Burgess Meredith) from the 1960’s Batman TV series and the costume of Catwoman (Julie Newmar) from the same show.
With a preview exhibition set for the 7th to 26th of September in Waterloo, London, collectors will get to put their bids on authentic movie items and fans around the vicinity will be able to take a look at the merch.
While most people might not have enough funds to make a bid on the items, it sounds pretty exciting to see different pieces of movie-history in the flesh.
