Love and Thunder clip teases awkward Thor and Jane Foster reunion

A new clip from Thor: Love and Thunder brings the Asgardian and his sidekick Korg back together for some classic sycophantic banter. As revealed on Good Morning America (via film update), the new footage has seen Thor and Jane Foster face to face again after several years. As uncomfortable as the exchange is, the delightfully charming Korg is here to make things infinitely worse.

Thor: Love and Thunder will mark the triumphant return of Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), now mysteriously wielding a reforged Mjolnir. The reunion between Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane, now known as The Mighty Thor, is an unusual situation for the god of thunder as he wonders how she came into possession of his former weapon and has questions about it , why he and Jane broke up in the first place.


While Thor does his best to reach out to Jane and address some of these issues, Korg (Taika Waititi) is on hand to make things even more uncomfortable and awkward than they already are. Classic Korg.

Hence, Thor: Love and Thunder marks Jane Foster’s live-action debut as The Mighty Thor. Created by Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman for Marvel Comics, Jane Foster’s The Mighty Thor is diagnosed with breast cancer following the deaths of her husband and son in a car accident. Unidentified at first, Jane picks up Mjolnir and possesses Thor’s powers. However, Jane’s use of the hammer prevents her chemotherapy from taking effect, which perpetuates her cancer every time she transforms and puts her in a very difficult situation.

Foster’s return is expected to remain true to the source material, according to a recent report Thor: Love and Thunder will find that Jane is “secretly struggling with a terrible affliction” that she can only “conceal as long as she wears Mjolnir”.

Thor will need Jane Foster’s help to defeat the villain of Thor: Love and Thunder

Jane Foster’s performance as The Mighty Thor is one of many exciting additions to the MCU in Thor: Love and Thunder. The sequel also brings Oscar winner Christian Bale into the Marvel fray as the villainous Gorr the God Butcher. The arrival of Gorr swears vengeance on the selfish gods who allowed his life to be nothing but misery and promises to be an unmatched challenge for Thor, with Bale’s proficiency test being “the highest of any villain Marvel has ever had,” according to him Director Taika Waititi.

Thor: Love and Thunder finds Thor on a journey he has never experienced before – a quest for inner peace. But his retreat is interrupted by a galactic assassin named Gorr the God Butcher, who seeks the annihilation of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie, Korg, and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster, who – to Thor’s surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer Mjolnir as the mighty Thor. Together they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the secret of the godslayer’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.

Thor: Love and Thunder is slated for a US release on July 8, 2022 as part of the MCU’s fourth phase.
