Ahead of Thor: Love and Thunder, let's explore Jane's rise to becoming the Goddess of Thunder.

Marvel Comics/Disney

Despite the official start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Four having been delayed due to Black Widow being pushed back from its intended April 2020 release, there are some major plans for this latest batch of movies for the MCU. And one such picture being eagerly anticipated by many fans is Thor: Love and Thunder.

To be directed by Thor: Ragnarok's Taiki Waititi, Love and Thunder will be a monumental moment in the MCU, as the mantle of Thor will be passed over to Natalie Portman's Jane Foster.

Upon the announcement that this fourth Thor movie will play out in this way, some more casual comic book fans were taken a little aback at the notion of there being a new Thor. However, the likes of Red Norvell, Beta Ray Bill, and Eric Masterson have all likewise taken on the role of Thor for a least a short spell over the years. But still, Jane Foster is the most recent, and the best, alternative Thor to have been seen in the pages of Marvel Comics.

How does Jane become Thor? How will this play out in the MCU? That's what we're here to dive deep on.
