MCU and Thor:
With Marvel Studios bringing the fourth Thor movie in the MCU, fans across the world are waiting with anticipation as to what the film has to offer.
The film will also reportedly bring back a very popular character played by a famous actress in the film’s franchise. This character has the power to give the original Thor a good run for his money.
Natalie Portman’s Return to the MCU:
Fans are still curious and confused as to what role will Natalie Portman have in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder.
Taika Waititi, the maker of the film, recently commented at the 2019 Disney D23 Expo, where he said that while Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Odinson would still keep his status and stature in the film, he would also be further joined by Portman’s character Jane Foster in it.
Jane Foster as Thor:
Foster is also a Thor, along with Thor Odinson, who is the original character.
While she is not addressed as the Female Thor, Foster’s character in the comics is called the Mighty Thor. And this story arc will be included in the series.
The Mighty Thor:
In the Marvel Comics, Jane Foster received the title of the Mighty Thor after the original Thor became Unworthy, all due to something that Nick Fury did.
Odinson could no longer wield the Mjolnir after that, and its power was then transferred to Foster who eventually took on Thor’s mantle and consequently joined the Avengers.
The Unworthy Thor:
Furthermore, a new separate title called The Unworthy Thor was declared, wherein Thor Odinson wielded his Jarnbjorn ax, which is similar to the Stormbreaker used by Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What Is in It for Fans?
Waititi further wants to make Foster’s character a full-fledged one in MCU and has been more than happy with the return of The Mighty Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Additionally, according to the director, this reprise of Foster’s character will also interest fans and attract their attention to the film even more.
Thor: Love and Thunder are slated to release on November 5, 2021.
