Marvel’s announcement of Thor: Love and Thunder at San Diego Comic Con 2019 was met with raucous cheers. This was because it was confirmed that Natalie Portman will be reprising her role as Jane Foster in the movie. But that isn’t all, it was also announced that she will be playing the mighty female Thor in the movie. As such she will definitely be wielding the Mjolnir as well. So it can be assumed that there are going to be two Thors in the movie. So, the question now arises- who will be the lead Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder.
What Is Thor: Love And Thunder Based on?
Thor: Love and Thunder is taking inspiration from Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman’s comic series of the same name. Since the comic saw Jane Foster take the place of Thor, many wondered if something similar would happen in the movie. But director Taika Waititi has indeed confirmed that Thor: Love and Thunder is a Thor movie.

“It’s Chris. It’s a Thor film. He is Thor, it’s a Thor film. She’s (Natalie Portman) in it.”
