Fans 'stunned' by first look at Natalie Portman as the Mighty Thor in new trailer
Marvel has just released the trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder, offering fans a first look at Natalie Portman as the Mighty Thor.
Fans have been waiting for Thor's trailer for what seems like a lifetime, and at least since Thor: Ragnarok smashed expectations back in 2017. Now, after five long years and countless other projects, Marvel is storming towards its release of the next Thor Installment in July.
The trailer begins with a young Thor running through the woods only to transform into the muscled-up God of Thunder we all know and love.
The movie will adapt elements from Jason Aaron's run on The Mighty Thor comic book, which sees Jane take on the famed mantle. The film will also star Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Russell Crowe as Zeus and Christian Bale as villain Gorr the God Butcher.

"Well, just between [me and] you and the readers, I've done some crazy sh*t in my life. I've lived, like, ten lifetimes. But it's the craziest film I've ever done," Waititi told IGN. "If you wrote down all the elements of this film, it shouldn't make sense."
He continued: "It's almost like it shouldn't be made. If you walked into a room and said, 'I want this and this and this.' Who's in it? These people. What are you going to call it? Love And Thunder. I mean, you'd never work again. Maybe I won't after this."
