At the premiere of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder‘ it will have been eight years, seven months and six days since we saw Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) venturing with the thunder god lived by Chris Hemsworth.
But this time, she won’t just be a hero’s love interest or a ‘damsel in distress’ in need of saving.
Now she is worthy enough to wield Mjolnir and become a superhero.
During an interview for the Total Filmthe star joked while revealing how it felt to transform into the ‘Mighty Thor’.
“It’s exciting to be a superhero. At the same time it’s scary because there’s no guide that comes up telling you how to do it.”
For that, portman trained hard to gain muscle and display a physique similar to the heroine in the comics, which left fans quite surprised.
“I trained for a long time before and during, and I was eating a lot of protein. It really helped prepare me for the level of action we ended up doing. We had amazing stunt doubles that made things really difficult, but I also did a lot of the running and jumping and swords and hammer fighting scenes. It was definitely helpful to gain muscle for this project, it wasn’t just aesthetics. To support the weight of the cape all day, you need to have a strong upper body.”
Remembering that ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ arrives in national cinemas on the day July 7th.

The film features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he has ever faced: the quest for self-knowledge. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the Butcher of the Gods (Christian Bale), which seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of the Valkyrie King (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, being the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the Butcher of the Gods’ revenge and stop him before it’s too late.
As the film will include the participation of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (waititi) Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), nebula (Karen Gillan), Drax (Dave Bautista), mantis (Pom Klementieff), Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper) and Groot (voice of Vin Diesel), there are several possibilities for this novel.
