The teaser for the fourth instalment of the ‘Thor’ franchise finally released last week. While the trailer was all about Chris Hemsworth’s ‘Thor’, it offered a glimpse right at the end of what fans have been eagerly waiting for – Natalie Portman’s ‘Jane Foster and her new superhero avatar.

Portman’s Jane Foster was Thor’s love interest in the first two instalments of ‘Thor. Now, not only is she back to the franchise but this time she becomes a superhero herself, wielding Thor’s might weapon, Mjolnir, which according to legend means that she is Thor herself.

Many fans are extremely curious as to how Portman’s character transformed into a superhero and while everyone is eagerly waiting for the release of the film to know more, a new line of Marvel merchandise connected to Thor: Love and Thunder’ has apparently given a spoiler.

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is the fourth solo outing for Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and this one sees him dealing with an identity crisis following the events of ‘Avengers: Endgame’.

The official synopsis of the movie reads: “The film finds Thor 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.”

This leads to Thor enlisting the help of old friends Valkyrie, played by Tessa Thompson, Korg (voiced by Taika) and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster played by Natalie Portman. He also discovers that Jane can now wield his mighty hammer which means she has his powers.

Now the spoilers have come with the new characters replicas that have been put on sale online. As per the Direct, the product is Mighty Thor’s helmet and the description on it reveals that Jane happens to get her powers from Mjolnir’s broken pieces when she visits New Asgard (the sanctuary they made for Asgardians on Earth).

The official description reads: Suffering from cancer, astrophysicist and Thor’s ex-girlfriend, Jane Foster, visited New Asgard and her life was changed forever. Mysteriously, the broken pieces of Mjolnir, the hammer of the thunder god, transformed her into the Mighty Thor and gifted her the superpowers of Thor, to battle threats internal and external. Wielding Mjolnir herself, she had become a godly protector and a new hero was born!”

‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ has been directed by Taika Waititi and is scheduled for release on July 8, 2022.
