Jane Foster Thor

Whosoever holds this hammer, if they be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor. 

Mjolnir’s inscription is pretty clear. Being + Hammer + Worthy = some God of Thunder butt-kicking. What folks have some confusion over is just who it is that decides that worthiness. Once upon a time, Odin thought it was him. Don’t worry, we’ll touch more on that here in a little bit. In reality, the answer is less of a who and more of a what. That “what” is the hammer itself. 

Mjolnir’s kept things pretty exclusive over the years, only letting a treasured few into its little club. Several came to pass in the old “What If” series, including the likes of Rogue, Black Widow, and Conan the Barbarian (listen, I don’t make the rules). We’ve got a couple out of towners, namely Superman and Wonder Woman, who’ve successfully wielded the hammer in crossover events. There are a couple of cheaters in the mix, with folks merging with Thor, wielding via technicality by simply throwing him (or his arm) around, some alternate dimension mishaps, and a clone, but we’re not going to count any of them. Then there are the real deal folks like Steve Rogers’ Captain America, Vision, and Valkyrie.

Oh, and one Jane Foster.

Natalie Portman is playing a female Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder, and before anyone whines that she’s too scrawny to wield Mjolnir, the Oscar-winning actress has teased that she’ll be getting “jacked” for the role. The actress will make her triumphant return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after not being prominently featured in a Marvel movie since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World, and a new report says that her deal to appear in this new sequel was signed six months ago.

natalie portman endgame cameo

There are a lot of surprising (and not-so-surprising) cameos in Avengers: Endgame. While almost all of these involved the original actors returning to reprise their previous roles, there was one specific case that resorted to recycling unused footage. You probably could’ve guessed this while watching the scene in question play-out, but now it’s been confirmed. See which MCU star was brought back with recycled footage below. Beware of major spoilers.

lucy in the sky trailer

“You got to see the vast celestial everything and it blew your mind, so now nothing makes sense.” Lucy in the Sky questions what happens when astronauts experience something literally out-of-this world, and return to Earth and all its humdrum activities. The feature film from Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley, making his directorial debut, looks as cerebral and trippy as that experience would be, anchored by a tremulous performance by Natalie Portman. See the Lucy in the Sky trailer below.
