    The Comic Book Roots of Jane Foster’s ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Story
    I have to give fandom props for making a pretty nice image header.




    Yeah, that was a 90's storyarc called "Blood and Thunder". I commented on it over on the first page of the villain thread too: The Villain

    It's probably where Taika got the name from but he's just riffing on it.

    Then I wonder if they address Lady Sif because she is still alive isn't she not? If she is, then they can always bring her back especially if that means ruling side by side with Valkyrie

    Is anyone else watching Ragnarok on Netflix? It’s a new series about the Norse gods and it’s actually filmed in Norway. There’s quite a few cast members who I reckon would be cool for a Thor sequel too for example Synnove Macody Lund would be an amazing Enchantress

    She looks like she should've played Valkyrie! She would've been perfect.

    not that long, Taika.... or is he one of those people who's like "oh wow, they still make comic books?" and just assumed it was a 20 year old story?

    The Jane Foster Thor character is actually quite old. The Jason Aaron's run isn't the first time we saw her being featured in Thor comics. She was first featured in 1978 in a "What If" issue. She went by the name of "Thordis".

    I know Jane Foster's been around forever, but the Lady Thor thing hasn't been that long
    And What If one-shots don't count... you know he was referring to Aaron's run

    I mean Jason Aaron's Lady Thor character is clearly taken from that "What If" issue. So there's old history with the character. I won't discount the "What If" series that easily. I mean we're getting a show/series version of those comics in 2021.

    To back up what HammerDown said, while it may be true that Jane Thor is a recent addition to the main Marvel comics timeline, the idea of Jane being worthy has been around for decades.

    And in any case, the fact that Aaron's run is recent doesn't make it any less worthy (pardon the pun) of being adapted into a movie. I mean, Civil War is pretty recent too, and I don't remember anyone complaining about that when it was announced that Captain America 3 would be based on it.

    Eh... Hela was a good scenery chewing villain but let's be honest... That's all she was.

    I don’t think she was just a good scenery chewing villain. I mean she’s the goddess of death, there’s tons you can do there. Look what writers like Neil gaiman and Terry Pratchett have done with the concept of death as a person

    "Thor: Love and Thunder", written and directed by Oscar Winner Taika Waititi.

    Doesn't sound half bad.

    Can't wait for this partnership. Natalie Portman can be great if they're able to tap into the right stuff.
    If there's someone capable of making Jane Foster a great character it's Taika. Just like he did with Valkyrie and Hela in Ragnarok, Scarlet Johansson in Jojo Rabbit, Bella in Hunt For The Wilderpeople...

    That does sound pretty good. Also Taika has another project coming up called "Next Goal Wins" a sports drama/comedy for Searchlight Pictures, that's another promising project that might be a play for the 2021 awards season.

    hopefully between her own little renaissance and Taika's considerable talents, maybe she'll actually try this time

    I loved Portman back in the day, but Comedy, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy are clearly not her comfort zones

    To be fair, she has admitted in interviews in recent years that she found working with green screen challenging especially on the Prequels (although that may have been as much to do with George Lucas' directing as anything else lol). And I honestly think that a large part of the problem with Jane in TDW was how she was written. I mean, she is literally unconscious for half the movie! And the deleted scenes that have been released from that movie were actually pretty good on the whole.

    As you say, hopefully Taika gives her the right direction to get a great performance out of her.

    I just think TDW was a huge clusterf**k of a production process, with the director and studio clashing over the direction of the film and huge amounts of it ending up on the cutting room floor. That it isn't completely unwatchable is probably a miracle tbh. Even Hemsworth was pretty much done with the franchise after TDW and it was only Waittiti's radically new vision that got him excited again and allowed him to totally rejuvenate the character. I can't see why Portman can't do the same with Jane.
