Every Marvel fan across the world was shook when the news that Natalie Portman will not only be returning to the MCU to resume her character Dr. Jane Foster in the new Thor film, but would also take on the mantle of the God of Thunder.
In a cheeky nod to her former onscreen love interest Chris Hemsworth, who by the way will also be returning for the fourth Thor movie, she joked about getting in shape and transforming her petite little figure into the bulked up classic superhero, just like the jacked Aussie hunk.
The uber-talented actress who is back to the Marvel Universe after calling it quits back in 2013 wrote on Instagram, alongside a snap of her onstage at Comic-Con with director Taika Waititi, while wielding a toy version of Thor’s magical hammer Mjolnir with the caption, "So thrilled to share the news with you today at #sdcc2019 that I’ll be returning to the @marvel #mcu as female Thor with legends @taikawaititi @tessamaethompson and @chrishemsworth. (Remember this as the before picture for when I get jacked)"
Watiti explained on the Comic Con panel that Thor 4 titled Thor: Love and Thunder will be based on a comic book storyline where Thor loses his ablilities, with Dr. Foster (Natalie) wielding his powers – and hammer – instead. He further said that her name would be Mighty Thor.
We’re so here for a hunky female Mighty Thor!
