Talk about a formidable duo.

Natalie Portman Wants Mighty Thor to team up with Captain Marvel after Love and Thunder.

After nearly nine years since her last major appearance in the role, Natalie Portman is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Jane Foster in Thor: Love and Thunder. However, this time around, she will become the Mighty Thor, as seen in Jason Aaron’s comic book run. Some are hopeful that this will lead to more appearances in the MCU, and Portman already has hopes for a particular team-up in the future: one in which she will wield Mjolnir alongside Captain Marvel (Brie Larson).

At the premiere for Thor: Love and Thunder, Natalie Portman spoke to Variety about her desire to have Mighty Thor fight alongside Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel in the future:

“I love Captain Marvel. Brie [Larson] is a dear friend so that would be a fun one.”

Will Mighty Thor join the Avengers?

It will be interesting to see what type of future Mighty Thor will have in the MCU, that is if she in fact survives the events of Thor: Love and Thunder. Given that Natalie Portman seems to have some renewed enthusiasm for her role, it would make sense to see her come back after this film, especially if Kevin Feige has even bigger plans for her in the future, which would make sense. After all, she’s an Academy Award-winning actress and certainly looks great in her suit wielding Mjolnir, and to see her assemble with Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel would be something special.

Here is the synopsis for Thor: Love and Thunder:

The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Directed by Taika Waititi and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, Taika Waititi, Russell Crowe, Natalie Portman, Jaimie Alexander, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.

Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters on July 8, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news surrounding the upcoming film, as well as the future of Natalie Portman’s Mighty Thor and Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
