Fans are extremely excited to witness Thor: Love and Thunder because it marks the return of Natalie Portman, as Dr. Jane Foster. While Natalie starred in the first two Thor installments, the actress gave Thor: Ragnarok (2017) a miss and her character was only briefly mentioned in Avengers: Endgame. This time, we will see Jane become worthy of Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, as she becomes Female Thor. The storyline is picked up from Jason Aaron's 2014 comic book rendition of how Jane becomes the Goddess of Thunder when Thor becomes unworthy to hold the hammer.

However, a major aspect of the same Female Thor storyline is that Jane also had breast cancer. Her chemotherapy treatments would become less effective every time she picked up the Mjolnir. Recently, Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi teased the breast cancer storyline possibly featuring in the upcoming MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) flick. During an interview with Variety, Natalie revealed that she was indeed excited about the storyline, in case it does appear in Love and Thunder. However, she is not yet aware of it.

"It’s just very rare that these kinds of big entertainment films look at more serious, real-life issues... I really don’t know anything about it. I haven’t seen anything, but I’ve heard the same rumors as you have, and it’s exciting to think about," Portman teased.
