Natalie Portman suits up as Mighty Thor in a new concept design for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
Last year, fans were surprised to learn that Natalie Portman was is to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Thor: Love and Thunder. Even more shocking was the fact that she would be wielding Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir, in the upcoming film. Natalie Portman had departed the franchise after Thor: The Dark World for reasons that have never been entirely disclosed. However, it seems the allure of becoming the God of Thunder on the big screen was too much for Natalie Portman to resist.
In the comics, Jane Foster started wielding Mjölnir after Thor lost his ability to wield his iconic weapon. The series, titled The Mighty Thor, saw Jane Foster take on a number of enemies, including Malekith the Accursed and Dario Agger, the CEO of Roxxon Energy Corp who was also a Minotaur. Mjölnir was ultimately destroyed during the War of the Realms crossover event and Jane Foster became a Valkyrie. But from the look of things, Marvel Studios will be adapting part of this story for Natalie Portman in Thor: Love and Thunder.
Since the announcement, fans have taken to the internet to imagine what Natalie Portman could look like in Thor: Love and Thunder. This new artwork from digital artist ihasankazi has Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster facing off against Chris Hemsworth’s Thor.
