AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Tie-In Novel May Explain How Jane Foster Becomes Thor In THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER

We know that Natalie Portman will suit as the Mighty Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder, but how is her origin story going to play out in the MCU? An Avengers: Infinity War tie-in novel offers some clues...

At this year's Comic-Con, we learned that Natalie Portman is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to suit up as the Mighty Thor in Taika Waititi's Thor: Love and Thunder. While comic book fans will be familiar with the character's origin story, we're bound to get a different take on the big screen, and now an Avengers: Infinity War tie-in novel may provide some clues.

Brandon T. Snider's The Cosmic Quest Vol. 2: Aftermath is considered canon and follows Thor supporting characters Dr. Erik Selvig and Darcy as they investigate The Snap. 

As you might expect, that leads to them crossing paths with Jane Foster, and it's revealed that her contact with the Aether (a.k.a. the Reality Stone) means she could sense that it was the Infinity Stones that caused half of the planet's population to vanish. In Tønsberg, Norway - revealed to be New Asgard in Avengers: Endgame - she uses the Waters of Sight to learn more about Thanos.
 
Jane's interaction with both the Aether and the Waters of Sight could mean that she has the "Cosmic Awareness," the same ability that her comic book counterpart has. That's generally something mortals who are viable hosts for major cosmic powers develop, and that may go some way to explaining what leads to her being able to wield Mjolnir.

Time will tell how much Marvel Studios chooses to explore this, but, as of right now, we don't even know how Thor's hammer finds its way into the present day after it was destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok!
