Marvel Studios is hosting the World Premiere of Thor: Love and Thunder in Hollywood tonight and all of the stars are hitting the red carpet. The film will see the return of Jaimie Alexander's Lady Sif, who hasn't been seen in a Thor film since Thor: The Dark World and it seems that the actress will be in a different place in life than we've seen before. While walking the red carpet, Alexander teased her upcoming appearance as Lady Sif.
Although, the actress has not been seen in a Thor film since the second film in the franchise, she has made a few appearances on Marvel series like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and most recently Loki. When it comes to her return in Thor: Love and Thunder, it appears that Alexander didn't have to get in shape for her role in the film. "For this movie, I didn't have to train. And you'll see why." So, it seems that we have to wait and see what Lady Sif has been up to when the film hits theaters.
Thor: Love and Thunder will also reintroduce us to Natalie Portman's Jane Foster, who has become The Mighty Thor since we last saw her in The Dark World. Jane Foster will be going through a "terrible hardship" in the film, but it's currently unknown if that hardship will be the same cancer story line from the comics. Chris Hemsworth begun doing interviews for the film and has teased some big reveals for Portman's return. While speaking with Yahoo Entertainment, the actor revealed that the film will answer some unanswered questions about Thor and Jane Foster's relationship.
"I mean, I started this journey with her[Portman], playing opposite her in the first film and to reunite now and have Jane being in a very different place and also Thor having to be in a different place," Hemsworth revealed. "It was a lot of fun and, you know, we got a chance to sort of answer some of the unanswered questions that we left the second film with when they parted. We didn't really know what actually happened. Did she dump him? Did he dump her? Who left who? Etcetera. So we had a lot of fun answering those questions."
"She comes in and definitely kicks some ass. Which is interesting for Thor to try and understand or grab a hold of that idea because he's in a space of 'who am I?' And to see someone else dressed like him is like, slightly confusing." The Thor: Love and Thunder star added when asked about Portman's action scenes.
Marvel Studios describes Thor: Love and Thunder as follows: "The film finds Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he's ever faced – a quest for inner peace. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic killer known as Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), who seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), who – to Thor's surprise – inexplicably wields his magical hammer, Mjolnir, as the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark upon a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the God Butcher's vengeance and stop him before it's too late."
The film is being directed by Taika Waititi and will star Chris Hemsworth as the titular character, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star Lord, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. In addition to directing, Waititi will also be reprising his role as Korg. Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters on July 8th 2022!
