Ever since Jason Aaron’s fantastic run made Jane Foster, as the Mighty Thor, one of the most arresting characters in the Marvel Universe, we’ve been wondering: will the movies follow suit? Oh, heck yes they will be.
As announced at San Diego Comic-Con today, Natalie Portman, reprising her MCU role as Jane Foster, will be taking up the hammer in the fourth Thor movie, this one directed by Taika Waititi. What this means for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Odinson is unclear, but, honestly, I’m not worried about that right now: Jane Foster. Thor. Yes. Good.
Also, just saying, Tessa Thompson mentioned at the panel that Valkyrie would be looking for her “Queen,” a reference to the bisexuality Valkyrie was supposed to have in Thor: Ragnarok. So, uh, maybe Jane Foster will get a new girlfriend? Just spitballing, here. Please, Marvel, give this to us. We deserve it.
All hail the Mighty Thor!
Thor: Love and Thunder is slated to hit theatres in the U.S. on November 4, 2021. If past trends are anything to go by, Australia may get the film a day or two early. Stay tuned for more news.
