Natalie Portman shocked everyone when she appeared at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con for the Marvel Studios Hall H Panel. Thor: Ragnarok (2017) director Taika Waititi revealed that the Oscar-winning actress will be returning to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) as Dr. Jane Foster for Thor: Love and Thunder. Not only that, but the Black Swan (2010) star will also be portraying Female Thor and will be able to wield Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. The actress, who is currently promoting her latest outing, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she spoke about Thor: Love and Thunder.

Jimmy recalled the memorable SDCC 2019 moment when Natalie picked up Thor's hammer and the crowd went nuts for her. When asked if she knew from the beginning that she would eventually essay Female Thor in the MCU, Portman shared, "I did not know. I was aware that there was a storyline but I did not know that they were actually planning on doing that in the movies. So, I'm very lucky." The 38-year-old actress also confessed that she was very nervous during her appearance at Comic-Con 2019 especially when she had to hold Thor's hammer.

"It was definitely nerve-wracking. I was like, someone is going to call me out for something... I didn't get to practice ahead of time [holding the hammer] so I picked it up and it was kinda heavy. (laughs)," Natalie confided with Fallon.
