THOR: LOVE & THUNDER Director Says He Stuck "Pretty Close" To The Comics For Jane's Arc; New Stills Released

Following last night's trailer, we have a new look at Natalie Portman as The Mighty Thor. Plus, director Taika Waititi confirms that he stuck "pretty close" to the comics when it came to Jane's arc.

Last night's full trailer for Marvel Studios' Thor: Love and Thunder gave us our first proper look at Natalie Portman's Mighty Thor in action, and we now have two new official stills featuring the returning Jane Foster suited-up.

The first, via Total Film, puts the hero in the forefront with Chris Hemsworth's Odinson donning his updated costume in the background, while Fandango's image finds the former lovers face-to face for the first time in... well, depends which one you ask!

Check out both stills below.

During an interview with Total Film, director Taika Waititi confirmed that his Ragnarok sequel will take inspiration from Jason Aaron’s comics when it comes to Jane's arc. "We stick pretty closely to Jane’s storyline, and what happened to Jane... because that was such an influence on the film. We’re trying to take the best parts of that."

Despite speculation that Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) might put an end to him in Love and Thunder, Waititi also seemed to suggest that this won't be the last time we see Hemsworth's Thor in The MCU.

"And also, it’s really fun, the idea that Thor [has] got Stormbreaker, that big axe, and now his hammer’s back and it’s in the hands of someone else," he added. "It’s no longer his hammer. It’s the idea that someone’s taking his place. I think a lot of fans are gonna potentially assume, ‘Oh, OK, this is the passing on of the torch’... I’m not privy to any plans Marvel has for the future, but I don’t think that’s the case."

Thor: Love and Thunder finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he’s ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor.

Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Directed by Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok, Jojo Rabbit) and produced by Kevin Feige and Brad Winderbaum, Thor: Love and Thunder opens in theaters July 8, 2022.
