Taika Waititi admitted that he made a mistake in Thor: Ragnarok. Once Thor: Dark World ended the romance between Thor Odinson and Jane Foster subjectively and completely off-screen, the filmmaker who now commands Thor: Love and Thunder commented during an interview that he regretted not having included the character in the 2017 feature.
In Ragnarokthe God of Thunder reveals that “she didn’t leave me, I left her”, when being asked about Jane. Now, eight years after their split, Thor is reunited with his ex-girlfriend, who is actually the Mighty Thor.
“It was part of the comic book directed by Jason Aaron, and it was something we always loved when I was working on Ragnarok.”Waititi told Variety (via Comic Book). “We were always talking about how cool that was. And part of me in Ragnarok really wished Natalie [Portman] could be a part of it, and then when [a Marvel] I said ‘we want to bring her back’, it all made sense.”
He continued: “She will be the Mighty Thor, she will now take the hammer [Mjolnir]and that character is going to evolve, and she’s going to be a hero too.”
In his new movie, Thor must go through a midlife crisis in his 1500+ years. On his journey of self-discovery, he will meet other gods, he will meet his lover and also a new extremely lethal adversary: Gorr, the Canicer of the Gods.
The film stars Chris HemsworthNatalie Portman, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Jeff Goldblum and Vin Diesel.
Thor: Love and Thunder opens in cinemas in July 7.
