“Thor: love and thunder” will be the second of 3 MCU movies to hit theaters this year. The tape brings us back to Chris Hemsworth as Thor along with Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/ mighty thor.
The feature film will hit the big screen on July 7 and its latest trailer showed us the first look at the villain ‘Gorr, the butcher of gods’, and gave fans an idea of what Portman will do now that she is worthy of wearing the Mjolnir after his absence for 9 years.
Although both characters have the same cape and can use Mjolnir, this does not mean that they will fight in the same way. In the following note, the director Taika Waititi explains the different way of fighting of each one.

Natalie Portman’s fighting style as Mighty Thor
During a conversation with the Total Film outlet, the director of “Thor: love and thunder”, Taika Waititi, compared Natalie Portman’s fighting style with that of Chris Hemsworth.
“The fighting style is completely different from Thor’s style. You have to play to people’s strengths, and Natalie has obviously danced and done ballet and stuff. She has a kind of dance feeling when she fights. It is very precise and smooth. She’s cool in a different way than Chris is. He uses brute force…”
He also noted how ‘unbelievably cool’ Jane Foster/Mighty Thor is to Marvel fans who have read the comics: “She’s up there. I mean, everyone who’s read those comics would agree that mighty thor is unbelievably cool”.
