As revealed in the film’s first teaser and its associated merchandising, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) somehow manages to put the pieces of Mjolnir back together.
“It was really fun,” Portman previously told Vanity Fair as she detailed her workouts and training. “I worked with a trainer, Naomi Pendergast, for, I think it was, four months before shooting, and then obviously all the way through filming. We did a lot of weight training and a lot of protein shakes — heavyweight training that I haven ‘t ever done before. Of course, I never really aimed to get bulky. It was very physical, so it was a lot of both agility work and also strength work. ” She added later in the same interview, “It definitely helps you get into character, and it’s definitely changed the way I move. You walk differently; you feel different. I mean, it’s so wild to feel strong for the first time in my life . “
Taika Waititi, who directed Thor: Ragnarokreturns to direct Thor: Love and Thunder. He also co-wrote the film’s screenplay with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson. The film and stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, Chris Pratt, Jaimie Alexander, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Jeff Goldblum, and Vin Diesel.
