    I'm wondering what the "Love and Thunder" denotes. Obviously there's Valkyrie arc but will Thor remain an eligible bachelor? They've completely forgotten about Sif and I'm not sure if they'll hook him up with Jane again after giving her powers.
    The Sif thing is a little odd because it’s like the film makers tried to completely distance themselves from everything that came before Ragnarok (with the Warriors 3 and virtually all named Asgardians being dead). Heck, they didn’t make reference to Sif again after TDW (tv shows don’t seem to be at all canon at this point) even after Asgard was blown up and the remaining Asgardians are now on Earth.

    I’m curious too how Jane and Thor’s relationship will be handled now because it was one of the weakest points of TDW and it’s another thing the Waititi and co seemed to want to put behind them.

    However, I can see a situation where Waititi follows up what he started in Ragnarok being that Thor doesn’t need a hammer to be a thunder god and might simply pass off the weapon to Jane Foster for whatever reason. Maybe a big bad that needs two Thors to take down.

    It’s just one or two posters, it’s generally been very cordial.

    I'll take your word for it (I don't have the time nor inclination to go back through all the posts) that it has only been a few recent posts. I hope things stay upbeat.

    Will this be a comedy like Ragnarok or be more serious? For some reason I think it will be disrespectful to make it a laughfest like the previous Thor. Can't imagine Portman as a comedic actress.

    Doubt we're gonna get "unworthy" like Aaron wrote. Endgame already went through that and left things with Thor well on his way to recovery. Taikiti (spelling?) went overboard on the humor in Ragnarok but he's a smart guy and I don't see him re-treading a plot Endgame just did.

    And for real, I'm just laughing at everyone who's automatically assuming the worst. Ya'll haven't been paying attention to the MCU; they don't straight up copy stories, they do their own thing. Just because JaneThor originated with Aaron doesn't mean the movie is going to follow that narrative and do all the things ya'll are bitching about.
    Yeah for real, I don't get why everyone is upset. Portman as Lady Thor is a cool move, and one that could potentially be interesting.

    I just want more Sif! Jaime Alexander is great and barely got a chance to shine. They could so do a JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY flick or mini series for streaming about her adventures. Maybe get Gillen to write it, or at least help.

    The more diversity in stories and characters the better, I say. Plus I've felt that Thor has been really lacking in the romance department for some time now. For a Nordic thunder god, the MCU has really made his flicks sexless. Two Thors! More Thors! Let's have all the Thors!

    I'm pleased that Natalie is in such a pivotal role.

    I don't know why they even bothered to address her getting Snapped to be honest, but they did that with a lot of supporting characters they seemingly forgot about.

    Maybe we'll find out why they actually broke up.
    However, I can see a situation where Waititi follows up what he started in Ragnarok being that Thor doesn’t need a hammer to be a thunder god and might simply pass off the weapon to Jane Foster for whatever reason. Maybe a big bad that needs two Thors to take down.
    This makes me wish we were getting Bill and a proper Surtur fight .

    They must have had a pitch that Portman really liked, or Taika charmed her, for her to have such a turnaround on doing these films apparently.

    Check out her skits on SNL - not just the rap videos. She can be funny.

    Besides, if they go with Jane Foster's arc as Thor from the comic, it'll have to be at least a little serious. And Taika can do serio-comedy based on Hunt For The Wilderpeople

    I actually wonder if they'll go into the cancer issue at all. I can kind of see them side-stepping it to be honest.

    Yeah - it's not like it'll have the same impact over three hours tops instead of the four years worth of comics. And no cancer means not having to shave her head for the role (though her Thor costume would probably include a blonde wig either way).

    Although it wouldn't be the first time for her .
