The “Thor: Love and Thunder” t-shirt unveiled
The shirt shows Thor (Chris Hemsworth) in the center of the shirt. But Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) as Thor also appears on the shirt. She is dressed in Asgardian armor similar to Thor. Finally, we see Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) on the jersey. too much.
This is our first real look at Portman as Thor, whom she was revealed to play when the movie was announced. As I wrote for the Deseret News, Marvel announced at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con event that Portman’s Jane will be taking on the role of Thor in the new movie.
- “I’ve always wanted to hammer,” Portman said at the event, according to Vulture.
In the Marvel Comics, Foster became Thor after the original Thor left somewhere to fight Gorr the Butcher God. Thor had lost his hammer at the time after a battle with Nick Fury, according to Marvel Database.
- Foster became Thor after being diagnosed with breast cancer, which could not be cured by magic. However, becoming Thor allowed him to live longer as Thor, as I explained for the Deseret News.
