Natalie Portman makes her return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the film Thor: Love and Thunder, this time as the wielder of Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir.
Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth solo excursion for Chris Hemsworth’s portrayal of the thunder god in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film reunites Hemsworth’s Thor with Natalie Portman’s portrayal of his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster. However, this time around, Jane has assumed the identity of the Asgardian, along with his talents and his old hammer. The film is based on a comic book plot in which Odinson is found unworthy of Mjolnir, which is subsequently picked up by Jane, who becomes the new Thor.
A new picture from the film Love and Thunder has been revealed, highlighting Natalie Portman in full Thor garb with Mjolnir at her side. As shown in various promotional materials for the forthcoming Marvel picture, the surface of Mjolnir is still riddled with fissures after its devastation in Thor: Ragnarok.
Based on teasers for the film, which have seen Tessa Thompson’s King Valkyrie in a similar setting, it looks like Thor is in New Asgard. Total Film has dropped a new photograph of Natalie Portman as Thor, which you can check out below.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to storm into theaters on July 8, 2022.
