It was previously announced that fans will be treated to a new a Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder. Marvel Studios confirmed that Natalia Portman's Jane Foster will lift Mjolnir in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Fans were thrilled to learn the actress's upgraded role in the Taika Waititi directorial. However, it has now been claimed that the OG Thor Chris Hemsworth is unhappy over being replaced in the fourth movie of the franchise. We'd suggest you take this update with a grain of salt. 

If sources of We Got This Covered are to be believed, the Aussie actor "doesn’t want to be forced out of the spotlight when Thor is at his most popular following his acclaimed reinvention in Ragnarok." The Avengers: Endgame actor apparently feels that the franchise has barely scratched the surface of the new Thor. He is allegedly disappointed about being "shunted into the background of his own franchise," the report claimed. 

While we wait for Chris to react to these rumours, the actor recently spoke about the delay in the filming of the project. He told Extra TV a couple of months ago, "[I was] supposed to shoot Thor in a few months, and that's sort of been put on hold. But that was gonna be in Australia. So I was gonna be in Oz for a while. Now it’s nice just to be home with the kids." 

He also previously teased that the script of the fourth Thor movie is nothing less than insane. Speaking with The Philadelphia Inquirer, he said, "It’s one of the best scripts I’ve read in years. It’s Taika at his most extreme and at his best. If the version I read is the one we get running with, it’s going to be pretty insane."

Here's a better idea, make NEW heroes. Oh wait, Marvel-Disney is just pandering and not really all in on inclusion and representation.

If someone would be Thor, it would be ONLY Hemsworth. No one else. He's terrific in the role, awesomely brilliant and delightfully captivating. He has made it his own, he f*cking owns it! He's the epitome of Thor. He IS Thor! Chris Hemsworth all the way!

Amazing! It's about time women were represented fairly! But I do hope the new female Thor is also lesbian or something non binary, because the LGBTQ community is massively underrepresented in film. All I can say is that this is a brave step in the right direction and I hope many, many more films choose this path.

Anonymous 3 months ago

Women are already represented fairly, and have been for decades. They are now taking over all the men roles, and for new reason. Like another comment said, just make new characters. We already have the Valk, Pepper, Captain Marvel, and a ton of other strong female characters. Replacing Hemsworth with Natalie Portman is an idiotic idea.

Natalie will be wielding the mjolnir thats a fact. Thats because Thor has the newer and probably stonger weapon i.e. Stormbreaker.

Anonymous 3 months ago

Awful take. STORMBREAKER is garbage that giant dwarf Dinklage was forced to make because of GOT fame, Mjolnir is an entity with character born of the will of the Allfather. Now, for reference, Eric Von Lustbader creates the dark elf Elrich of Melnibone, who wields STORMBRINGER, a sword with mythical soul striking abilities, as well as it having a sibling weapon, Wormbrand Soulstriker that also could rip the souls from the living. It’s a travesty that either comics or MCU stole an original weapons concept to bastardize Mjolnir into some subweapon. . . Mjolnir as an entity is VASTLY superior to most any of the humanoid supers, hence the inability to wield. Warping all the canon into multiple versions of the Norse dirty already sucked, then destroying the mythos of Mjolnir

People are saying Portman isnt replacing Thor...well in a small way she is taking away a part of his character... I cringed every time Portman was on screen with Thor. I don't want her to have Thor powers it's less screen time we get to see the real Thor. It's lame. The whole movie will be spent with Portmans journey becoming worthy. Snooze fest! What we or at least I wanna see is an adventure with Thor and the Azgardians, a lot of banter with Peter quill and Thor, and Lady Sif being the motivational love interest for Thor, cause that was Thors last friend who Waititi didn't ruthlessly kill off... Plus she is good for Thor...meow

He is Thor and still has stormbreaker. She may have the power of Thor and molnjir but will not be Thor. Room enough for several story lines. Imo They ran parallel in the comics, why not the movies?

I have always thought she couldn't get into the role. She played both movies like her mom was making her go to school "Every Single Day!" SOB! But my friends moms let them stay home. I have always hated her in this role. Nothing against her when she loves it like Black Swan, but this seems to be "yay, I am in a Thor movie." And not. "Heck Yeah! I am in an Awesome Thor movie!" I love Thor, he is my favorite comic book character even back in the original comic days [yes, I am a girl that loved reading comics since I was a kid. . . Long time ago.] Maybe someone else could pull off female Thor, but it speaks volumes that she was absent from the arguably best Thor movie.

I'm fine with the movie direction. The only thing that bothers me is that Natalie Portman crapped all over the Thor movies. Portman talked all sorts of crap about how she didn't like being in them and didn't like romantic scenes with Hemsworth. Hemsworth's wife actually did the kissing scenes between Thor and Jane in the Dark World. At the very least they should have replaced Portman with a new actress. She phoned in her scenes just like she did with the Star Wars Prequels.

I don't think Chris is bothered by the new Thor. After all, Chris Thor doing things on Earth doesn't work. Chris Thor doing things in the galaxy, works. As for Natalie Thor, she's someone who has a life outside of Thor, which means she's be a great addition to the Avengers.

Someone is saying that Sif should be the new Thor. Seriously? She wasn't in any MCU movie after The Dark World. Marvel won't revive that character now.

Anonymous 3 months ago

Id'a preferred if Sif was a Valkyrie. Tessa Thompson is an insult to Norswomen, although I guess if was okay to have Tom Cruise as a Samurai then it's less of an issue. Just imagine if Thor had met Suf on Sakar, after having seen everyone he loved killed or believed dead, only to be tazed and thrown in the Grandmaster's Arena by her. That would've been great and more emotional.

There's only one thing that would make Thor 4 worth watching. Look, I get that Jane Foster Thoress is canon in the comics, but that doesn't mean it's going to be good. Now Beta Ray Bill on the other hand... that's worth seeing. Especially if Guardians vol.3, now that the original non-woke writer and director is back in the chair, intersects with Thor 4 or 5, it would be so awesome to see Rocket and Beta Ray on screen together.

Hell since Hollywood is in full bi-erasure and gender identity mode and bent on making Valkyrie bis*xual only in theory but for all practical purposes l*sbian 'because she can't pick a male to rule Asgard with her, she deserves a queen yaaas', I wouldn't have any issue with horseface and tr*shpanda portrayed as bi and having a buddy-cop vibe going. I bet the general and alphabet audiences alike would love the chemistry and the ambiguous masculine banter. Picture a dynamic like Tango & Cash (coincidentally Stalone and Kurt are in the MCU), 22 Jump Street, Hobbs & Shaw, Ted 1&2, Sherlock Holmes (coincidentally RDJ & Jude Law are in the MCU), Point Break (coincidentally Stark calls Thor this) and Fired Up, a fun buddy-cop duo just with more bromance undertones. It would be refreshing with how everything is so watered down and warped to exclude masculinity or make it look as 'toxic' as can be.

NP is a good actress and im sure will do well. That being said chris made thor with his humor and charm, he fits the physical profile to Marvels thor perfectly(original myth thor has red beard n hair), and with the fact that he's already 1500 years old in the series means he could easily stay for a few more movies as thor even if he is just roaming the galaxy

this is probably all hype. Just at Valkarie took over as super of "New Asguard" didn't make Thor less important in the franchise...... Natalie Portman playing a female Thor didn't diminish his character. Their not at all likely to but him in the background. He may share the stage..... But I'm convinced he'll definitely be in a starring role. Jury is out on Natalie Portman as a female Thor. She certainly phoned it in after the first movie. She can actually actually it she gets invested. As far as disappointment. I love the chemistry of Thor with the guardians of the galaxy. What I'll be the most disappointed in is if they don't get to a full on crossover movie with them.

Chris has made Thor his own for sure but the hammer has passed to others before in the past. This being said changing a character at possibly the height of there popularity can be disastrous if just done for the sake of doing so. If It must be done it has to be believably done and within the continuity of the mcu to have a good chance fans will except what amounts to an unnecessary change at this point and also assuming Hemsworth is still willing to suit up for it.

One thing we are all missing is, how will Mjolnir return into the current timeline? Mjolnir was desroyed by Hela and the Mjolnir from "End Game" was sent back to its proper timeline.
