Infinity War was full of surprises. While many fans went to the movie for action, they came out of the theaters sad, as the Mad Titan succeeded in fulfilling his dream of attaining all six Infinity Stones and wiping out half the existence: including many of our favourite heroes.

While Thanos did succeed, Thor almost saved the day for Avengers when he stuck his Stormbreaker right into Thanos’ chest, but Thanos reversed it with a snap. The snap took a toll on Thanos as we saw his arm getting damaged and the Gauntlet breaking post the snap. The question still remains: Can the Gauntlet be re-used again? While many fans are still looking for answers, one thing is certain: The Stormbreaker is an excellent countermeasure against the Infinity Gauntlet.

During a Q&A session by Collider, directors Joe and Anthony Russo were asked if the Gauntlet will be reused and would the Stormbreaker be strong enough to stop that from happening.

“Joe – It certainly has the ability to counteract the Infinity Gauntlet.

Anthony – I think that key moment, though, is that Thanos was caught off guard. He literally just didn’t know the power of what was coming at him. I mean, maybe he could have used the Stones in a different way had he understood what that weapon was, but it came out of nowhere.”

Earlier Marvel Studios Visual Development Head Ryan Meinerding revealed why the creatives chose Stormbreaker.

“I always felt that Beta Ray Bill’s weapon form the comics – Stormbreaker – was a little too similar to Mjolnir. So I was looking to more of the Mjolnir from The Ultimates, where it has more corners and edges, and feels more like a heavy, solid thing as opposed to another Mjolnir-sized weapon–almost that it feels unbalanced. It’s almost too powerful. It really takes someone incredibly powerful just to pick it up because it’s such an unbalanced weapon.”
