This official image for Thor: Love and Thunder record the reunion of Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman.
Marvel Studios is planning to release their forthcoming sequel, Thor: Love and Thunder approximately two months ahead. The movie witnesses the return of Academy Award-winning director/writer Taika Waititi to lead the latest standalone movie focusing on God of Thunder, which is played by Chris Hemsworth after their collaboration was critically praised 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. Based on the movie Thor: Ragnarok by director Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth’s leading character confirmed that he and Jane have since stopped their love relationship, 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 reunite in Thor: Love and Thunder; additionally, with the courtesy of Empire Magazine, an image from the movie has been unveiled. Here, we can witness the duo collaboration, and it definitely sounds great.
It’s certainly interesting 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.
