Thor: Love and Thunder will be directed by Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), which will be the continuation of his 2017 hit sequel, Thor: Ragnarok. Natalie Portman must return as Jane and will use the mighty Mjolnir. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will also return as Thor and Valkyrie, respectively. Thor's female plot is based on Jason Aaron's series in "The Mighty Thor," in which cancer-stricken Jane Foster takes on Thor's cloak and powers.
Thor and Valkyrie were last seen in the highest grossing movie of all time, Avengers: Endgame, with the thunder god entrusting his responsibilities as king of Asgard to Valkyrie as he joined the Guardians of the Galaxy on his next mission.
