UNITED STATES: Thor: Love and Thunder’s teaser sparked a buzz among Thor fans earlier with its release. In the teaser’s final scene, Natalie Portman wields Mjolnir. A new poster of Chris Hemsworth as Ravager Thor wielding the Stormbreaker was also unveiled shortly following the teaser. After all of the hype encircling the film had subsided, the actress officially shared another poster starring Natalie Portman as Mighty Thor on her social media handle.
Thor is shown on a quest for self-discovery in the teaser, indicating that the god of thunder is no longer in his Hero phase. We will see him in his leisure period, where he will come across Gorr the God Butcher, who is on the point of exacting his retribution on all gods. Thor, Korg, Miek, and Valkyrie will set out on a mission to end Gorr’s murderous rampage.
Origin of Mighty Thor
The origin of Mighty Thor was first introduced in the Marvel Comic of the same name and published from 2015 to 2018.
Mighty Thor’s story does not begin with her birth but rather Gorr’s transformation into the God Butcher. In a ferocious battle between Gorr and Thor, the god of thunder faces a befitting defeat. Right after that, Thor becomes unworthy of Mjolnir.
Jane Foster, on the other hand, is fighting cancer. Thor transports Jane to Asgard for better treatment. She refuses the treatment, claiming that as a human, she should be able to bear the pain as much as a regular human can. She receives a vision of Mjolnir during her time in Asgard. She becomes the Mighty Thor after coming into contact with Mjolnir. Being a God of Thunder, however, always comes with a price. When Jane transforms into Mighty Thor due to her connection with Mjolnir, the effect of cancer on her body is amplified, causing her human life to perish quickly.
Though the film will not follow the comic book’s plot, Marvel is known for taking a unique approach to its characters. It will be fascinating to see how Jane Foster morphs into the Mighty Thor in the upcoming movie.
