Jane Foster’s character is expected to gain even more popularity after Thor: Love and Thunder, at least that’s what we think after Natalie Portman’s brand new statements. The latter is, in fact, traced back to the script of the film, especially a part that we didn’t know about until now.
Thor 4, the first parts of the scenario that we already knew
After the critical success of Thor: Ragnarok in 2017, Taika Waititi takes over the camera on behalf of Marvel, more precisely for Thor 4, called Thor: Love and Thunder. In this film, slated for release in the US on February 11, 2022, Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman) becomes a female incarnation of Thor in a similar way to the comics. To make the script as interesting as it is aesthetic, Thor: Love and Thunder will use Industrial Light & Magic, a visual effects company from Lucasfilm.

Regarding the scenario of the film, we had learned from Taika Waititi herself that Thor 4 would be inspired by Jason Aaron’s comics “The Mighty Thor”. We also wondered how Jane Foster could possibly get hold of the Mjolnir. According to an emerging theory, Steve Rogers would succeed in finding the one mentioned in Dr. Strange’s mansion to replace the existing Mjolnir with a fake one when he travels through time to hand over the Infinity Stones at the end of Avengers Endgame. Thor would then take the scythe to Norway, and the latter would be broken by Hela. For his part, Rogers could have watched over the real Mjolnir before attempting to return it to Jane Foster in Thor: Love and Thunder, for example. It seems the Oscar-winning actress hasn’t made any revelations since she recently agreed to resume her current physical preparation and reveal a detail of great importance.
Information revealed by Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman recently confided in an interview with Yahoo that her character Jane Foster would fight cancer in the next Thor, just like in the aforementioned Taika Waititi comics. She also said:
I can’t tell you much I am really excited. I’m starting to train, build muscle. There can be more female superheroes, and the more the better. I’m trying to think of the character based on the graphic novel The Mighty Thor. She (Jane Foster) is being treated for cancer and is a superhero next door.
Jane Foster therefore has to fight cancer parallel to the intrigues of Thor: Love and Thunder, a scenario choice that should deepen the character.
