As originally teased at Marvel’s star-studded Phase 4 panel at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is now wielding Thor’s mighty hammer, which has been resurrected from its Hela-induced death. Wearing the finest Asgardian warrior wear, she looks every inch the superhero that her now-aimless ex, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), used to be. She shows up just in time as Thor has to confront Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale), a major threat that he seems very unprepared to fight. While Jane has been mastering Mjølnir, Thor has been goofing off with the Guardians of the Galaxy, and it’s clear that the group is ready to offload the boisterous buffoon on some other poor saps. Besides Jane, those saps include Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) — who has become head of the surviving Asgard population since Thor’s post-Endgame abdication — and the affable rock monster Korg (voiced by Waititi). This new Warriors Three is going to have to whip Thor back into fighting shape if they’re ever going to have a chance of defeating Gorr.
