Thor: Love and Thunder recently dropped its very first teaser and by the end of it, Jane makes her first appearance as the Mighty Thor which surprised the God of Thunder as his former lover takes on a new mantle of being the newest superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Strange enough, the Mjolnir is back to existence after Hela broke it and many are wondering how it was re-forged.

How Did Jane Re-forge the Mjolnir in Thor: Love and Thunder Teaser?

By the end of the teaser of Thor: Love and Thunder, Thor gets surprised to see his former lover, Jane, wield the Mjolnir and be the Mighty Thor. In a confident stance, Jane holds the Mjolnir in one hand with lightning coming through her. However, many have noticed that the Mjolnir is no longer in perfect shape, having cracks where blue arcs of lightning are seeping through it, which only means one thing: it has been reforged.

It could be remembered that in Thor: Ragnarok, Hela singlehandedly destroyed the Mjolnir, much to the surprise of Thor and Loki and with the reforged Mjolnir in the teaser of Thor: Love and Thunder, it suggests that it is the very same hammer that was broken and a lot of questions arise as to how Jane got ahold of it and how she manages to fix it.

In the comics, the Mjolnir has been destroyed one too many times and every time it is to be restored, it gets reforged in exchange for a great cost. It seems that Jane does not have the ability to have to go to Eitri and have it re-done so theories point that another craftsman is set to debut in the movie or it could be the same enchantment that Odin placed on the Mjolnir that caused it to reform.

See, in the first Thor movie, Odin put an enchantment on the Mjolnir that whosoever is worthy enough shall have the capability to possess the power of Thor and wield the Mjolnir. Thor proved himself to be worthy, so did Captain America in Endgame. It is possible that the enchantment Odin put on the hammer caused itself to reforge in the presence of someone worthy enough to activate the magic and in this case, it is Jane, making the Mjolnir the source of her powers as the Mighty Thor.
