Everyone was delighted with revelations that came about in this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con 2019. In particular, both hardcore comic fans and the more casual viewers alike were hyped up with Marvel Studios teased their plans for the next two years. With series spin-offs set to be released on Disney+ and all-new films set to be in theatres, there’s much to look forward to. But what excites us most of all are the increasingly female-centred releases coming up. Perhaps the biggest and most unexpected news of them all is Natalie Portman making a comeback and taking on the mantle of female Thor.
Natalie Portman is worthy
After being absent in Thor: Ragnarok, Natalie Portman will reprise her role as Jane Foster and become the female Thor in Love and Thunder. We’re not exactly sure how this will come about with her role as an astrophysicist in the film to be directed again by Taika Waititi, but we’re sure that her new character will be inspired by Jason Aaron’s The Mighty Thor comics. Though she might be the one wielding the Mjolnir in this fourth Thor movie, we’ll still be seeing Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson star alongside her.
