This official image for Thor: Love and Thunder reveals the reunion of Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman.
Marvel Studios is slated to release their forthcoming sequel, Thor: Love and Thunder approximately two months ahead. The movie marks the return of Academy Award-winning director/writer Taika Waititi to lead the latest standalone movie revolving around God of Thunder, which is played by Chris Hemsworth after their highly-praised collaboration on Thor: Ragnarok. Now, Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster – a former character from the franchise, is set to return for the first time in nine years after a long-awaited time.
In the San Diego Comic-Con presentation in the summer of 2019, Marvel Studios informed that Natalie Portman would make her return in Thor: Love and Thunder to hold Mjolnir as the Mighty Thor, which is inspired by Jason Aaron’s comics. Picking up from the plot thread of Thor: Ragnarok by director Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth’s leading character concedes that he parted ways with Jane, and some audiences have supposed that Portman was dissatisfied with her experience in the previous movie.
After several years, both Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman have reunited in Thor: Love and Thunder; additionally, an image from the movie has been unveiled. We finally get to see the two of them together again, and it’s amazing!
Fans are on the edge of their seats to watch how Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman continue what they left off in the previous project with their characters’ relationship. In particular, the most exciting factor of the new movie is how director Taika Waititi will portray their dynamic.
The movie, which is produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, and directed by Taika Waititi, features Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Russell Crowe, and Sean Gunn.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to open in theaters on July 8, 2022.
