At the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, more specifically at the Marvel Studios Hall H Panel, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) fans were in for a major shock when it was revealed that Natalie Portman will be back in Thor: Love and Thunder. Not only that but her character Dr. Jane Foster will also be worthy of Thor's Mjolnir. When the announcement was made, Natalie arrived on stage and was given the hammer by director Taika Waititi and seeing that image of what we can expect from Portman's Female Thor, has got everyone excited.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 38-year-old actress was asked about what convinced her to come back to the MCU, when it looked like she was done with Marvel movies. To this, Natalie first explained why she was not a part of Thor: Ragnarok (2017) saying, "Obviously, I wasn't written into the third Thor because of where it took place. It wasn't really on Earth, and my character is on Earth." While talking about what intrigued her to Thor: Love and Thunder, the Lucy in the Sky star added, "They came to me with the fourth idea and said, 'We have this idea to, that was a storyline in some of the comics where Jane becomes Lady Thor,' and I was like, 'This is very exciting!'"

"Of course with Taika and I love Tessa [Thompson] and Chris [Hemsworth] so much, so it's exciting to get to work with them again. And I'm very excited to wield the hammer," Portman concluded.
