The Marvel Cinematic Universe is reshaping its storytelling with Thor: Love and Thunder (2022), undoubtedly one of its most diverse movies in history. Now, Natalie Portman has completely replaced Chris Hemsworth.
Phase Four of the MCU has been nothing but new stories featuring revolutionary characters that redefine how Marvel Studios sets up future films. Though there’s a lack of a connected overarching story that sets up an Avengers 5, going back to a core of six Marvel characters, such as Thor Odinson (Chris Hemsworth), is something that virtually every Marvel fan can look forward to.
Especially with Natalie Portman rejoining the Marvel Collection in a groundbreaking way.
Lady Thor is finally here with Thor: Love and Thunder, and fans can’t wait to see how Natalie Portman interacts with Chris Hemsworth’s classic character.
In a brand new image, Portman’s Mighty Thor has completely replaced Hemsworth, taking the throne alongside Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson):

While Lady Thor plays an integral role in Marvel Comics, Natalie Portman is finally fulfilling her Jane Foster character arc by being saved by the mysteriously reforged Mjolnir, preventing any deadly cancers from consuming her body while harnessing the power of Asgard within her hands (resulting in her new muscles and warrior lifestyle).
More about Thor: Love and Thunder
The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
Tom Holland’s Avenger is leading the way for Marvel Cinematic Universe newcomers Kate Bishop, Ms. Marvel/Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac), Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), She-Hulk (Tatiana Maslany), Eternals’ Thena (Angelina Jolie), and more — especially with his next Spider-Man trilogy that’s currently in the works.
Thor: Love and Thunder debuts on July 8, 2022.
