Natalie Portman’s return as Jane Foster in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ has Marvel fans excited. Thor’s ex returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to wield the Mjölnir and put yourself in the shoes of the mighty Thor. But beware, this does not mean that it will replace the usual Thor, played by Chris Hemsworth. Or so the film’s director, Taika Waititi, believes.
After the grand finale to Phase 3 of ‘Avengers: Endgame, we have seen how some of the UCM veterans have said goodbye to the saga, passing the baton to other characters destined to take their place, such as Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), the new Captain America after the departure of Chris Evans or Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), who follows in the footsteps of his sister, Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson). Nevertheless, this would not be the case of Jane Foster and Thor, who initially would coexist in the Marvel Universe.
This is what Waititi has specified in an interview with the web GamesRadarwhere he has explained that, at least for his part, the return of Jane is not designed as a relief: “Thor has the Stormbreaker and now his hammer is back, but it’s in someone else’s hands, and that’s really funny. It’s not his anymore. It’s the idea that someone else is taking his place. I think a lot of fans are probably going to think ‘Okay, they’re passing the baton’… I’m not aware of Marvel’s plans for the future, but I don’t think that’s the case.“.
Hemsworth has expressed on several occasions that he intended to retire the character, but since Waititi took the reins of the individual saga of the God of Thunder and successfully reinvented it from his personal point of view in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’, the Australian actor found a new illusion to stay. And so we come to ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, which Hemsworth has qualified What “The best project I have had the pleasure and honor of working on”. Regardless of whether or not Natalie Portman will return in the future, everything indicates that this will not be the last time we see Hemsworth’s Thor.
the star of the movie
Marvel has just released the second trailer for ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’, a month after that first teaser that was so hard to ask, and the marvelites have received it with real passion. The advance has left us with many details and clues to analyze and has finally shown us the villain played by Christian Bale, Gorr, as well as Russell Crowe in the role of Zeus. But who continues to capture all our attention is Jane Foster.
Among other things, the new trailer confirms that the Jane of ‘Love and Thunder’ is not a variant, but the same one that Thor fell in love with, suggests that she could have been a victim of Thanos’ snap and teaches us a new power of the Mjölnir in his hands: break into pieces to attack and come back in one piece. On the other hand, we also know that the film will address the plot of the comics in which Jane fights against cancer, although for now we do not have much information about it. There is less left to see everything, since ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ opens in theaters on July 8.
