Natalie Portman’s return to the MCU after a nine-year absence has been one of the most highly discussed announcements of any concerning Phase 4, especially since Jane Foster will find herself worthy of wielding the mighty hammer Mjolnir. Thor: Love and Thunder will also potentially bring in Jane Foster’s cancer storyline from her recent run in the comics, which could end up leading to her worthiness, and it’s becoming clear that she will become a much more major player than in either of her two previous MCU appearances to date.
In a new video call on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, via Twitter, Thor: Love and Thunder star Natalie Portman took a minute to discuss the upcoming release for the fourth Thor solo movie. Not much new information was revealed in this 66-second video, although Portman said that this next MCU film is “gonna be really silly, and funny, and great.”
Taika Waititi breathed new life into the MCU with his directing and leadership on Thor: Ragnarok, along with his hilarious portrayal of the Kronan warrior Korg, and his work has led to incredible success critically and financially, both within and outside of the MCU. As he pulls together the script for his second directorial run in the MCU, fans are already counting down the days until this film comes to theaters. With Jane wielding Mjolnir and the plot set to take Thor and crew all across the universe once again, the story of the Asgardian King is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
