The one downside of being a small site is we’re unable to attend every great event, festival. The Positive we can deliver you round ups like San Diego Comic Con. As this year’s Con draws to a close we have a look at Marvel Cinema Universe. Last 24 hours there’s been some ‘Thunderous’ announcements like Natalie Portman is Thor!
After the conclusion of Endgame, gossip spread on what we may expect in Marvel Cinema Universe Phase Four. All that was revealed, here’s our round up…
Thor 4 Will Be Entitled Thor: Love And Thunder, Natalie Portman
Only a few days ago Taika Waititi announced his return, the question was…”What version of Thor will we get?”. That was all revealed at the panel by Marvel CEO Kevin Feige. He revealed Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are returning, So is Natalie Portman, but she is THOR!
No info was revealed in what form or even were son of Odin will be. Valkyrie will be the Queen of Asgard or ‘King’ so she will be on the look for her Queen. Thompson said…
“That’ll be her first order of business. And then, I don’t know. It’s already been mentioned that Asgard isn’t a place but a people, so she’s got to invest in her people. And hopefully she’ll get some love and thunder.”
This opens the door for Marvel’s first LGBTQ Character. Feige did also say there will be more than one LGBTQ character with Eternals, who we don’t know yet.
“Yes that’s the case, and will be the case not just with [Valkyrie] but with other characters in some of the movies we talked about today.”
Portman will be returning as Jane Foster, despite being Thor’s human love interest has always been a supporting character. Not now and Waititi explained the Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic Jane is the Female Thor and Love And Thunder perfect launch platform.
“When we were shooting Ragnarok I was reading one storyline by Jason Aaron, the Mighty Thor. And for those of you who know that storyline, it’s incredible and introduced love and thunder and for the first time, female Thor.”
The news shocked many and Portman herself thought her MCU days were over too.
“Feels pretty good. I always had a little hammer envy.”
Thor: Love And Thunder is set for an November 2021 release date.
