Thor: Love and Thunder is the fourth film in the MCU's Thor franchise, following 2017's well-received Thor: Ragnarok.

The film will feature returning stars Hemsworth, Portman and Thompson, along with franchise newcomer Christian Bale as villain Gorr the God Butcher.

Thor: Love and Thunder is also notable as the movie is set to pass the superhero title of the God of Thunder to Portman's character Jane, thereby introducing the first female Thor.

In 2020, the Oscar winner, 39, said her version of Thor is not considered "Lady Thor," but rather "The Mighty Thor."

"She's actually The Mighty Thor," the actress told Serena Williams in an Instagram Live about their female-led WFC LA/Angel City soccer team. "The comics had the female Thor when Jane becomes Thor, and she's The Mighty Thor."

Portman explained to Williams, 38, that due to the coronavirus pandemic, she had more time to train before the start of production. "We haven't started," the actress said of filming at the time. "More time to get jacked. Which I have not. I've got the carbo-loading down, but not the exercise part."
