Natalie Portman will return to play Jane Foster in Thor: Love and Thunder and, this time, she’ll get her own magical hammer and become The Mighty Thor. In the comics, Thor became unworthy of Mjolnir, which led to the magical hammer seeking out Jane Foster, who became worthy of it and turned into the Mighty Thor. However, it’s possible that, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, things will play out very differently. We here at CBR believe that Jane Foster will actually become the Mighty Thor with the help of the Reality Stone.
In the MCU, there’s a precedent for some heroes to get their abilities from the Infinity Stones. Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers, got her amazing abilities after being exposed to an engine powered by the space stone. Both Wanda and Pietro Maximoff got their powers from the mind stone. Jane Foster herself was exposed to the reality stone back in Thor: The Dark World and it’s very possible that, once she reunites with Thor in Love and Thunder, we’ll find out that the reality stone has changed her, giving her superhuman abilities. Of course, Jane would need her own magical hammer before she can earn the title of the Mighty Thor. While this change would be a massive departure from the comics, it’ll help the Mighty Thor stand out and not be just a female version of Thor. Considering the amazing powers of Captain Marvel and Scarlet Witch, the Mighty Thor could be a major player in the MCU.
