Marvel’s Next Thor: Natalie Portman
The news was announced on Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Deigo. Portman has appeared in 2011’s “Thor” and 2013’s “Thor: The Dark World” as Thor’s romantic interest, astrophysicist Jane Foster.
The new film titled “Thor: Love and Thunder” will follow a storyline that first appeared in the comic book series in 2014. In this saga, Nick Fury whispers something into Thor’s ear which causes him to be unworthy to wield Mjolnir. His hammer remains stuck on the moon. Even Odin, Thor’s father, fails to secure it.
The hammer then begins telepathically communicating with Jane Foster and eventually leads her to the moon. From there, she manages to wield the hammer and become the Goddess of Thunder.
So… all of you dumbasses that decide to bash a female Thor… There have been a bunch of different Thors, YES INCLUDING JANE FOSTER! Thor dies, Jane Foster picks up the hammer and is worthy, so yeah… it's canon. pic.twitter.com/sTuNjczE0o

Thor Announcement Unleashes the Trolls
One irate fanboy seems to have forgotten this plotline, saying that “Thor is a male character” and “Democrat PC will wreck the world.”
Give me a f'm break…I'm a Natalie Portman fan but Thor is a male character… When do we get a male Wonder Women? Democrat PC will wreck the world. Stand up and say NO

Other “fans” don’t seem to care that the plotline of the new movie holds up. One tweeter can’t seem to accept the size of the new Thor.
So Natalie Portman is playing female Thor in #ThorLoveAndThunder…. Waiting eagerly to see 5ft and 100lb chick swinging a mighty hammer
