Natalie Portman will play the role of the female Thor in the Marvel film Thor 4, titled Love and Thunder. The film with a male and female Thor, has been in cinemas since autumn 2021. Portman received symbolic Thor’s hammer from Thor director Taika Waititi this weekend at Comic-Con in San Diego.

The lead role for Natalie Portman is remarkable, because in the first two Thor films she played the role of Jane Foster, the sweetheart of the superhero. Chris Hemsworth returns in the fourth part about the Norwegian thunder god in the title role. Tessa Thompson returns in the role of Valkyrie.

Taika Waititi, who was also responsible for Thor: Ragnarok, returns as a director.
