Marvel to break its tradition
One of the most exciting elements of this upcoming Marvel wave is Jane Foster’s transformation as the Mighty Thor. The character Jane Foster disappeared from the MCU since Thor: The Dark World, and was apparently shown dead. However, now fans are looking forward to how Jane will make an entry again. Details of the plot have been kept under wraps, however, it is sure that the premise of the film is inspired by Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic run book, in which Jane Foster suits up as the new Thor.
Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Love and Thunder is intended to be the direct sequel to the 2017 released Marvel film Thor: Ragnarok. The screenplay of the film is co-written by Jennifer Kaylin Robinson and features Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Chris Pratt in pivotal roles alongside Portman. Thor: Love and Thunder is all set to hit the theatres in the month of May, next year.
Talking about the latest Thor movie, the Ragnarok part detailed Asgard being completely destroyed by Thor to save the Asgardians from the wrath of her sister and the goddess of death, Hela. In the war, Thor was joined by Tessa Thompson aka Valkyrie. Now, audiences speculate if Asgard will rise again from dust or a whole new place will be created.
Amidst this, Natalie Portman’s massive physical transformation has become the talk of the down. Fans couldn’t help swooning over her muscular arms when behind-the-scenes pictures from the sets of Thor: Love and Thunder went viral on the internet.
