AceShowbiz - There are still months away before "Thor: Love and Thunder" hits theaters, but fans may have gotten the first look at Natalie Portman as Mighty Thor. A merchandise of the upcoming film is believed to have offered a glimpse at Jane Foster in her superhero costume.
Over on Twitter, a picture circulated online of a T-shirt from the forthcoming Marvel film. Reportedly posted by a crew member of the movie before it was swiftly deleted, the T-shirt features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) being sandwiched between Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and the Mighty Thor.
All three of them wear their superhero costumes, but it marks the first time the scientist-turned-superhero is seen as her alter-ego in her battle outfit. She wears a helmet and a cloak while wielding a hammer.
As for Thor and Valkyrie, their costumes appear to be upgraded. Thor's armor has more color, with yellow veins running throughout the costume. He is still wielding Stormbreaker while the Mighty Thor takes Mjolnir. Valkyrie's outfit, meanwhile, seemingly features a little tweak on the front.
"Thor: Love and Thunder" adapts elements from Jason Aaron's run on the "Mighty Thor" comic book, which sees Portman's character Jane Foster taking on the mantle and powers of Thor whilst suffering from cancer. She assumes the new identity as Mighty Thor as she becomes a hammer-wielding hero.
Besides the returning stars, Christian Bale is cast as villain Gorr the God Butcher, with "Guardians of the Galaxy" actors such as Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan and Sean Gunn reprising their respective MCU roles.
Filming began in January this year in Sydney, Australia and wrapped up at the beginning of June, with Taika Waititi back at the helm. The movie is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on May 6, 2022.
