Marvel Studios wastes no time. While he was winning numerous awards at the MTV Movie & TV Awards thanks to ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, ‘Loki’ or ‘Black Widow’, the company chaired by Kevin Feige decided to launch the first exclusive preview of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ during the gala. Although they have already left posing together in a promotional photo, Jane Foster and Thor finally (re) meet in this preview that comes just over a month after the premiere of the fourth film of the god of thunder.
After two trailers that showed us how Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor raised Mjolnir and where we got our first look at Christian Bale’s villainous Gorr, comes the long-awaited reunion between the two Thors. It is a short clip of 23 seconds, where we can see how Chris Hemsworth’s Thor tries to get hold of the powerful hammer, which is seen partially rebuilt after Hela (Cate Blanchett) destroyed it in ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. She although she calls him, Mjolnir flies in the opposite direction to end up in the hands of Jane Fosterjust like what happened at the end of the first trailer for ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’.

The trailer ends with Jane Foster spinning Mjolnir the same way Captain America did in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and Hemsworth’s Thor has always done. Thanks to that movement, we can intuit that the Mighty Thor has her abilities under control at the time of meeting her ex. With ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ (the first Marvel Studios superhero to have a fourth installment), We will see Natalie Portman again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, something that has not happened for nine years with the 2013 premiere of ‘Thor: The Dark World’.
Will both gods of thunder coexist?
With the promotion of the new film by Taika Waititi facing its final stretch, it seems clear that its main interest will be the interaction between Foster and Thor. After Portman’s return, many wonder if he will replace Hemsworth in the UCM, just as it has happened with Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) or Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson). ). Hemsworth’s god of thunder is one of the original Avengers and has been in the UCM practically since his creation, so it could be thought that the generational change will touch him too. However, the director has been in charge of denying (partially) these rumors. “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.“.
‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ opens in theaters on July 8.
