While speaking with CNN during San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige reveals that Taika Waititi was considering bringing Jane Foster’s Mighty Thor back when he was shooting Thor: Ragnarok and when he agreed to make a sequel.
FEIGE: “We love the story — it’s one of the best comic runs recently.”
“[Director Taika Waititi] would flip through and read that run while he was doing ‘Ragnarok.’ And I think when he agreed to come back and do another Thor, he was like, ‘How do we–?’ This is a very big movie that’ll be folding in a lot of elements. That is a hugely important part of it. He pitched it to us, and we were totally in. We loved it. We’d been in touch with Natalie. She’s part of the MCU family and we put she and Taika together. It took one meeting and she agreed to do it.”
Natalie has also taken to Instagram to promise fans she’ll be hitting the gym to get jacked for the role.
PORTMAN: “So thrilled to share the news with you today at SDCC 2019 that I’ll be returning to the MCU as female Thor with legends Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson.”
“Remember this [image] as the before picture for when I get jacked.”
James Gunn recently revealed on his own Instagram account that Guardians of The Galaxy 3 will take place after the events of Thor: Love and Thunder.
Kevin Feige confirming over the weekend that Valkyrie aka King of New Asgard is indeed an LGBTQ character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making her the first leading character to be LGBTQ. Although, she won’t be the only one for long as he also confirmed that Eternals will have their own LGBTQ character as well (a previous rumor suggests a gay male leading character will be played by an openly gay actor).
Thor: Love and Thunder is officially set for release on November 5th, 2021.
