How Jane Foster Gets Mjolnir in ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently in the midst of its second week in theaters, with the film firmly establishing itself as a box office success and the first big hit of the summer season.
The next film to come from the Marvel Cinematic Universes Phase Four schedule is the highly-anticipated Thor: Love and Thunder; a film that should be the most personal Thor story yet.
A movie that is set to explore the character in an entirely new way, the fourth film in Thors MCU saga will also bring back some of the series’ most beloved characters, and debut entirely new ones.
With the menacing Gorr the God Butcher on the loose, the film will likely center on Thor and his band of allies taking on the incredibly powerful, and destructive, forces seeking to eliminate the existence of the divine across the universe.
Part of that team that will likely gather to defend New Asgard from the wrath of Gorr will be none other than The Mighty Thor.
Her inclusion has been confirmed since 2019, with many asking how the narrative will explain the characters gaining of Thor’s powers; well, we give it our best guess, as we discuss how we think Jane Foster gets Mjolnir in Thor: Love and THunder.
If we take you back to Thor: Ragnarok, the film began with Thor and Loki gathering together with their late father, Odin, as he ultimately would say his goodbyes.
The two characters had no time to mourn, however, as their long-lost sister Hela showed up to wreak havoc on the two; resulting in her destroying Mjolnir.
That sequence holds the key to Foster’s acquisition of the iconic weapon, as Odin spoke to Thor of the mountainside in which he said his goodbyes by stating, “Remember this place…home.”
That place was Norway, which would eventually go on to become the home of the displaced Asgardians; being referred to from then on as New Asgard.
The fact that the legendary weapon of Thor was destroyed on the grounds that established the foundation for New Asgard is the perfect set for Foster coming into contact with the weapon; as her even visiting the new home of the Asgardians would bring her close to it.
We believe that it is that which allows Mjolnir to sense the worthiness of Jane Foster, and restructure itself to grant her the powers of The Mighty Thor, in a moment that will undoubtedly be as iconic in the film as it was in the source material.
The moment should birth Foster’s cooperation with the Asgardians, and ultimately lead to her role in aiding Thor in defeating Gorr’s attack on the universe.
