The reveals about Taika Waititi's Thor 4 have been striking faster than lightning, and during San Diego Comic-Con 2019, we learned some shocking new details about the film.
Thor 4 is actually titled Thor: Love & Thunder, and it will feature a monumentus passing of the torch, as the power of Thor (and the hammer that goes with it) gets passed to Natalie Portman's Jane Foster!
Portman showed up in Hall H to officially claim Mjolnir as her own. Not surprisingly, Marvel fans are having some big reactions to hearing this casting news!

Taika: u can be Thor and date Tessa Thompson's character
If you think about it, the game has changed so much for women in the MCU, since the days where megastars like Portman were resigned to playing thirsty love interests. Why *shouldn't* she get to enjoy the golden new era?
The real question is where does Jane Foster's Thor leave her would-be beau Richard Madison (Chris O'Dowd) from Thor: The Dark World?
