Ever since Jason Aaron’s fantastic comics run made Jane Foster, the Mighty Lady 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, Thor: Love and Thunder, 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: Lady. 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 theorising, here. Please, Marvel, give this to us. We deserve it.
Thor: Love and Thunder is slated to hit cinemas on November 5, 2021.
