“Thor: Love and Thunder” will be released on screens on July 13. To wait, director Taika Waititi gave details on the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, and the evolution of the character.
Thor: Love and Thundermore beautiful people to come
With Thor: Love and Thunder Taika Waititi goes behind the camera for the second time for a Marvel production. After the success of Thor: Ragnarok (2017), the director returns for an adventure that still promises to be completely crazy. The famous superhero embodied by Chris Hemsworth will undergo a major change and his powers should evolve. During his journey, he will notably come across the road of Zeus and will have to face the terrible Gorr. He can still count on Valkyrie and the Guardians of the Galaxy, as seen in the trailer. Finally, he will find Jane Foster changed because she has become Mighty Thor…
Jane Foster is back and different
While Empire unveiled a new image of the Thor: Love and Thunderbringing together Natalie Portman and Chris Hemsworth, the American media was able to obtain some additional information about the movie. Thus, we learn that Taika Waititi had at first not thought to include Mighty Thor. But while writing the screenplay, he wished to bring Jane back in a somewhat original way.
You don’t want Natalie coming back just to play this character who walks around with science tools. While Thor flies to her adventures, she stays on Earth, stamps her foot and wonders: “When is he coming back?”. It’s boring. We want her to take full part in the adventure.
Additionally, the filmmaker clarified that the humor of the character has so far not been sufficiently exploited. And that Natalie Portman is just a very funny person in life. We should therefore have a very different Jane at all levels.
Obviously, this return of the character is likely to quite a shock for Thor. On this subject, the director explained that it will not be not easy to accept the hero, especially since Jane will have had “another life lasting about eight years“.
Suddenly, the love of your life comes to the fore, and is dressed like you. It is very destabilizing for Thor.
We can’t wait to see her reaction when Jane appears, in uniform and with her hammer in her hands! See you in theaters on July 13, 2022 to discover Thor : Love and Thunder.
