She’s baaaack! Keep in mind Natalie Portman this manner, as a result of she’s prepared to rework for Marvel’s Part 4. I do not suppose Portman goes to get Chris Hemsworth jacked when astrophysicist Jane Foster returns as the brand new Thor. However she did joke about stepping into form for Thor: Love and Thunder, which was simply introduced to nice shock final evening at 2019 San Diego Comedian-Con. Take a look at Portman’s tease of what is to come back:
Thor (Chris Hemsworth) received “fat” in Avengers: Endgame, Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) took over ruling Asgard, and now Jane Foster is returning and possibly getting “jacked” for Thor: Love and Thunder. What a timeline we reside in.
Simply the opposite day, Taika Waititi was confirmed to be returning to direct Thor 4. Now we have now a full title, a November 5, 2021 launch date, and the announcement of Natalie Portman’s return as Jane Foster.
The brand new film is supposed to be primarily based on Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comedian sequence, exhibiting Jane Foster as worthy sufficient to wield Mjolnir and taking on as the brand new Thor. Since Taika Waititi is making the film, I suppose followers can belief that he’ll put his personal worthy spin on the arc. He will not let anybody down.
Final we heard, Thor and Jane had cut up up — she could have dumped him, though Thor appreciated to see it as mutual. It was a pleasing shock to see Jane Foster once more in Avengers: Endgame, since Jane gave the impression to be minimize from the story after Thor: The Darkish World. All Natalie Portman did for Endgame was some voice-over work, however it was a intelligent method to introduce her again into the MCU and preserve her contemporary in our minds earlier than her subsequent return.
After that, she stated she was open to a return however had no information. Feels like she was ready for Kevin Feige to name her agent and say they lastly knew what to do subsequent with Dr. Jane Foster.
Oh, and Avengers: Endgame simply topped Avatar. Bam. What a weekend for Marvel. I’m so excited for Natalie Portman to return to the MCU sandbox with a extra meaty function to play. Thor: Love and Thunder was introduced as opening in theaters on November 5, 2021.
