    Well it's not like Feige and Waititi and Co. are going to lift entire ideas from Aaron's Thor run wholesale and transplant them into this film as is. They already changed Hela's parentage. So MCU Jane becoming Thor does not automatically have to require Thor Odinson becoming unworthy, losing an arm, etc.

    this is very much where my hope remains for this movie, that Feige and Taika are not idiots to shit on Thor and the Thor mythos the way aaron did to push his pet jane. They know Hemsworth brings in the viewers to the Thor movies and you don't mess with that. Also Ragnarok showed Taika is a good director and he treated Odin with a lot of respect in that movie (whereas aaron shat on Odin), for example the "are you thor, the god of hammers" was a GREAT scene~

    basically, take the concept of fem-thor and make a movie out of it, it will work just fine. The concept itself is not bad and it's been done to success before, just don't copy the rest of aaron's comic.

    Easy starting points: don't call her thor, don't make her the bestest strongest thor from the moment she picks up the hammer, have her struggle/lose/work/train for the power and success, don't retcon Mjolnir, don't force unworthy Thor and so on.

    The MCU takes the stories from the comics and reinterprets them, often for the better. MCU Thor doesn't have the same identity issues that Comic Thor has had in Aaron's run (seriously, guy needs a therapist, not more hammers), So my hope is that Taika will reinterpret the story of Jane-thor, without making OGThor a meandering, miserable, self-loathing sad sack who uses copious amounts of alcohol as a coping mechanism. Or they don't make Jason Aaron a consultant.

    except that's not true, the real sales figures and how they compare to previous Thor comics have been brought up maaaany times by many different people. So I'll just quote one of em, @wall-crawler

    Aaron saved nothing, quite the contrary, he has alienated the Thor fanbase, at least when you have meh stories you still have your fans, but Aaron managed to push away a lot of fans (granted he brought in new ones, about the same as he pushed away), but in the end, Aaron saved absolutely nothing.

    Talk about going out of your way to defend a writer.

    minority? lol but I see the majority opinion that aaron's thor run was bad and he ruined many parts of the Thor mythos~

    EDIT - just to bring up, aaron's War of the Realms event also sold badly despite it being this giant event~

    Portman was in my mind the absolute worst casting of an ongoing character in the MCU. By far.

    Cool that Natalie Portman is back. Hopefully this can get them back together and coexist with the power of Thor. I think making Thor unworthy or killing him would be a huge let down, especially after his whole redemption arc in Avengers. Let them both be Thor, Thor and Lady Thor. Two Thors. Maybe more Thors? Lots of Thors.
    I dont know if we're ever going to see Sif again, honestly. I hope so, and if Portman/Jane is returning (who saw that coming?) you never know.....but I don't see it. Still, most of Thor's supporting cast is dead now, with only Val, Korg, and Mieik (spelling?) left; even with Jane returning I feel like there'd be room for Sif.....and given the movie's title I could see them maybe trying some kind of weird romance thing between Val, Thor, and Sif, with Jane tossed in as the ex.

    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.

    Wonder who the big bad is gonna be. Must be a powerhouse to require the combined efforts of 2 Thors & the new Queen of Asgard to bring them down.

    What about Mangog, especially if they are pulling from Aaron's run?

    I know right!? I could see Mangog judging Odinson as Unworthy because of his failure to stop Thanos.

    Ahh the potential is so maddening, cannot wait.

    Hopefully now we will see awesome omnibuses of Aaron's run

    Cool.I liked the previous three Thor movies(The second one was not the best one but not terrible either) so i am looking forward to watch this one as well.
    And i am quite intrigued to know who will be the villain of the movie.
