Thor: Love and Thunder will function the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. However greater than that, the character will take up the mantle of the Mighty Thor and wield Mjolnir because the Goddess of Thunder.
Taika Waititi, after efficiently turning Thor: Ragnarok into an absolute blast, is again as soon as once more with all of his quirkiness to ensure that the subsequent installment is simply as absurd and authentic as its predecessor, which is why it’s secure to imagine that this reworked model of Jane will likely be a lot totally different from her earlier appearances within the MCU.
It’s wanting as if the producers have determined to take the story down the identical path because the comics as effectively, as we’ve heard that the character will likely be battling most cancers earlier than changing into worthy of Mjolnir. The actress herself has confirmed this, too, however the best way it’ll unfold continues to be ambiguous. In spite of everything, Marvel Studios has taken a number of liberties with the timeline of its fictional world.
In line with a brand new principle by the parents at ScreenRant, although, the rationale that Jane will get most cancers and subsequently the God of Thunder’s powers may very well be her publicity to the Reality Stone in the course of the occasions of Thor: The Darkish World.
In spite of everything, the MCU has already established that you could get superpowers from the Infinity Stones. Captain Marvel obtained hers when she got here involved with the Tessaract, whereas the Thoughts Stone gave Imaginative and prescient existence. In addition to, we all know mortal human beings can’t work together with these elemental powers with out repercussions. So, it stands to purpose that the Aether additionally modified Jane when she housed it in her physique for a quick interval in the course of the second Thor film.

As ScreenRant explains:
Jane’s story in [The Dark World] contains the Aether aka the Reality Stone flowing inside her for days. She turns into more and more sick throughout this time however seems to be higher as soon as Malekith takes it out of her. This might change, although, with the Aether doubtlessly infecting Jane’s DNA and being the foundation of her getting most cancers.
Along with the Aether changing into an evidence for Jane getting most cancers, the ability of an Infinity Stone can do far more. The MCU has already established Infinity Stones can create superheroes. Captain Marvel received her powers from a Tesseract explosion, Imaginative and prescient had the Thoughts Stone embedded in his brow, and Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver had their powers unlocked by an Infinity Stone. Because the Aether’s essential energy is the flexibility to alter actuality, the concept it might alter Jane’s genetics will not be out of the query. This won’t solely give Jane most cancers but in addition imbue her with some powers.
Perhaps that’s the rationale she’ll have the ability to wield Mjolnir with out crumbling beneath its godlike powers? Although as within the comics, Thor: Love and Thunder might have a tragic destiny in retailer for Jane as effectively, the place she’ll need to resolve between her personal well-being and the toll of utilizing these powers to be a hero.
