Thor Love and Thunder: after the hammer of Mjolnir, Jane Foster will have another weight to carry on her shoulders

The promotional campaign for Thor: Love and Thunder is off to a good start. After the trailer, a synopsis and several posters, press releases formalize certain details about the film directed by Taika Waititi And today, here is one that confirms that comics are a great source of inspiration for the director.

Mighty Thor: at the heart of the plot

Since the trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder came out a few days ago, the spotlight goes out for a while Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to focus on the 4th opus of the god of thunder.

But it is in particular Jane Foster who has attracted attention around her since she was seen brandishing the famous hammer of Mjølnir, reserved for Thor at the end of trailer. An image that did not fail to question the MCU fanbase. The Alternate Poster Recently Revealed by Marvel Studios shows us a Natalie Portman wearing the outfit and the weapon of the son of Odin and having the tagline ” The one is not the only “, or in French: “ The one but not the only “. Which gives even more weight to his credibility to carry the famous weapon.

All this seems to be close to the story told in the comics ” mighty thor “, where, back in Asgard, Jane Foster realizes that she is worthy to wear Mjølnir, since she manages to lift it. An action that transforms her into a goddess of Thunder.

Many parallels with the comics

But the desire to get closer to “mighty thor ” is even more obvious when we learn from the merch of Marvel that the goddess will have cancer in the film. As a reminder, in the comics, she has terminal cancer and each of her transformations into Mighty Thor weakens her a little moreruining the beneficial effects of his chemotherapy.

Here is the official description:

Suffering from cancer, astrophysicist and ex-girlfriend of Thor, Jane Foster, visited New Asgard and her life was changed forever. Mysteriously, the shattered pieces of Mjolnir, the thunder god’s hammer, transformed her and gave her the superpowers to fight internal and external threats. By wielding Mjolnir herself, she became a divine protector, a new hero was born! “

After being absent from Thor: RagnarokNatalie Portman has been announced for Thor: Love and Thunder by Takia Waititi, in which she would become Mighty Thor. Waititi was therefore largely inspired by Jason Aaron’s comic book series, through the character of Mighty Thorbut also via the film’s main villain, Gorr the Butcher of the Gods, who will be played by Christian Bale.

Another example of this inspiration is to be found in the trailer, when Thor and Korg face a Falligar on a frozen planet. He is a powerful protective god and friend of Thor in the comic Thor: God of Thunder #3 (still by Jason Aaron).

As the days go by, information falls around the plot of the highly anticipated second MCU film. And that’s only the beginning.
