After 6 years of absence from the MCU, Portman is back with a bang as she was unveiled as the next wielder of Thor's thunderous hammer Mjolnir.

During a recent sit-down with, Portman opened up about how she never thought that she will make her return to the franchise as Mighty Thor. She shared, "It definitely is amazing to have these, Jane as Mighty Thor comic books that Taika gave to me the first time we met as this kind of kernel of an idea for what this could be," referring to the comic books that started the Mighty Thor trope that came out in 2014, three years after Portman took on the role of Jane Foster. Later in 2019, during the Comic-Con Marvel announced the storyline formerly after director Taika Waititi stepped into the picture.
