‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Trailer Reveals Natalie Portman as Thor

Thor Love and Thunder

We got the first taste of Thor: Love and Thunder on Monday, as the movie’s teaser trailer offered a glimpse of what the Asgardian Avenger has been up to in the wake of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. The Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure, from director Taika Waititi, is scheduled to hit theaters on July 8.

Guns N’ Roses’ 1987 song Sweet Child O’ Mine blasting in the background, the trailer shows Thor getting back into shape after his “Bro Thor” phase in Endgame, and riding with the Guardians of the Galaxy. It also hints at Russell Crowe’s Zeus and ends with the reveal of Jane Foster holding Mjolnir as the new Thor.

Thor: Love and Thunder also got its first poster recently. It features OG Thor holding his ax Stormbreaker above his head, looking pretty darn superb with the caption “The one and only.” However, actor Natalie Portman on Wednesday posted a new variant of the poster on her Instagram, featuring Jane’s version of Thor holding Mjolnir, looking even more amazing with the caption “The one is not the only.”

In the comics, Mjolnir sought out Jane after Thor was deemed unworthy and she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. He gave her his blessing to use his name and went by “Odinson” to avoid confusion.

It’ll be actor Chris Hemsworth’s fourth turn in a standalone Thor movie and director Waititi’s second Thor movie, having helmed 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.

Including Tessa Thompson as Asgardian King Valkyrie, Portman as Jane, and Chris Pratt as Peter Quill to name a few. Joining the cast is Crowe as Zeus and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.  Marvel showcased a bunch of merchandise on Wednesday, showing us Gorr and revealing that the official name for Jane’s heroic persona is “The Mighty Thor.”

However, there’s still a ton of MCU action for fans to finish before Thor: Love and Thunder come out. Moon Knight is currently airing on Disney Plus, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 6 and Ms. Marvel starts streaming on Disney on June 8.

On Tuesday, Square Enix revealed that Jane’s Thor will be the next playable hero to join the 2020 Avengers game. It’s unclear exactly when she’ll be added.
