    I'm guessing Loki is out. Prime timeline he's still dead. Time stone is gone. Hela blasted Mjolnir into a million pieces. Granted that took place at the site of new Asgard so mjolnir pulling itself back together would be interesting. But it was forged by Eitri on Nidavellir

    Would that mean the hammer has a sentience to it?

    I just read her recent post on Instagram

    "Remember this as the before picture for when I get jacked"

    it sound like Portman is going to try do this the old fashioned way by working out and putting on a lot of muscle and if she pulls if I will be impressed. the last time Portman was ever close to being in that that kind of shape was in Star wars episode 2. she will probably have to put on even more muscle than she had back then if she is trying look close to comic female Thor

    well the way I see it Alicia Vikander was thinner than Portman when she was cast as the lara croft in tomb raider and she went from looking like this

    to looking like this

    if portman is willing to put on the muscle than I think she will be fine
    but CGI is always in option if she is not up to it

    Aaron established Mjolnir as having a mind of its own during his Jane Thor run, so I'm thinking that will carry into Love and Thunder.

    I have to say, I liked Alicia's body before. I think she overdid it on the abs. I don't know if Natalie is going to need to do something similar unless she's planning to show her abs in Thor 4.

    It'll be Portman as Thor, she's promising to get jacked for the role. I wonder if they'll tackle the cancer story. Seems a bit heavy for MCU and a lot for a single movie. If they do though, her contact with the Aether could be the cause.

    In movies Thor's power source is himself unlike what is shown in that comic

    I can't see them skipping Jane's terminal illness - that's a HUGE part of the storyline.

    Yes, but Mjolnir is powered up as well. Otherwise Cap wouldn't have been able to throw lightning at Thanos.

    They often only take small bits and pieces from comics though.

    They have to do it. The conflict of changing to Thor being the thing killing her would be a disgrace if it is dropped. The story practically writes itself.

    You mean like they skipped Mistress Death's role in IW/EG? Or Adam Warlock's for that matter?

    That's because of Odin's magic

    Because Mistress Death is hokey and far fetched even for Marvel movie. A cancer storyline would be moving and resonant. They can even use the Aether as the reason she got cancer.

    This is different. At no time did Markus, McFeely or the Russos say that they were doing an direct adaptation of the Infinity Gauntlet comic book storyline. And as it turned out they took bits and pieces from Starlin's Thanos Quest & Infinity Gauntlet, quite a bit of Hickman's Infinity, and mashed it into the existing MCU.

    In contrast, Waititi DIRECTLY referenced Aaron's work on Mighty Thor. "If you know that storyline, it's incredible, it's full of emotion and love and thunder". What do you think he was talking about? You think Taika's going to strip out the most compelling part of the incredible storyline (his words), Jane's sacrifice? That doesn't make a lick of sense to me.

    She'll make her sacrifice
    But then Thor will probably use all his remaining power to resurrect her
    then we get Jane-Thor moving forward and a powerless og Thor

    They skipped out mostly on Tony Stark's alcoholism. In fact, in Iron Man 2, he only seemed to be drinking to numb himself from the Paladium poisoning, but didn't seem like he was a full-blown alcohol who was addicted to drink. He never once seemed to absolutely crave a drink afterwards in all the other movies, especially Iron Man 3 where he was suffering from PTSD.

    So I can see them skipping the cancer for Jane Foster. It might not be something people want to be reminded of when they go to a movie to escape, especially those suffering from cancer themselves.

    Eh maybe
    I will say I don't really trust Taika to handle a Cancer story with the gravity it requires

    I doubt it. To me this smells like a "one and done" for Ms. Portman. I doubt she'll be sticking around for Avengers 5.

    The difference being Favreau never said he was adapting "Demon in a Bottle" for the big screen.

    As one of the few people on this planet that loved Korg's "as long as the foundations are strong" quip, I think Mr. Waititi is perfectly suited for handling the dark humor we're likely to see in a terminally ill superhero story.

    I mean it still sort of works. Odin used the enchantment as a restrictor plate on Thor in Thor 1, but it also has the ability to grant power to others it deems worthy which plays into the sentience aspect.

    Thor is still Asgardian and the enchantment did lift his restrictions at the end of the 1st movie. It wasn't until the 3 that Odin told him, and he came to the realization, Mjolnir was a cap/enhancement on his powers not the source of them. Stormbreaker is just a new enhancement.

    To be fair, he didn't when he literally blew up a planet.

    Although Demon in a Bottle is the most famous alcohol and maybe even most famous Iron Man story, there have been plenty of other alcohol stories in Iron Man. One notable one was when he lost his fortune to Obadiah Stane, but the writers kept going to that well many times after. It's as if they thought it was Stark's most defining characteristic.

    So even if Favreau weren't adapting DIAB, he could still have effectively adapted that alcohol storyline from Iron Man in general. But he never went fully into that because it didn't fit with the lighter tone of the Marvel movies. And the same could apply here with Jane Foster.

    Tony isn't an alcoholic in the MCU. He also didn't go crazy and be replaced by a teenage version from another dimension. It's silly to point out the many, many changes Feige and company have made in adapting the comics to the big screen as evidence that Taika Waititi will completely ignore a comic book storyline he directly referenced in front of a crowd of thousands in Hall H.

    If Mr. Waititi wanted Lady Thor with out all of the disease stuff he wouldn't have referenced Aaron's work. I would be disappointed if he decided to drop it and I doubt very much that he will.

    Besides the chance to work with Taika, this is the type of story that I can see being attractive to someone like Natalie.

    You say this based on what you saw from Ragnarok.
    If you watch some of his previous work you might feel otherwise.

    Most people have a distorted perception of Taika as a director... mostly because of Ragnarok.
    Before he even did Thor he was known to trade a fine line and balance between tragedy and humor. Granted Ragnarok leaned a lot on the humor but he's more than just that.
