Thor 4: Mighty Thor's Aaron and Dauterman React to Jane Foster's MCU Return

During Marvel Studios' panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, more details were provided about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including for Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth installment in the God of Thunder's eponymous franchise. However, it was also revealed the film would feature the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, though she'd become the Mighty Thor.

Although the concept of Jane becoming Thor was first explored in a What If comic from 1978, it wasn't until Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman's Thor run in 2014 that the idea truly became a reality. Aaron and Dauterman both reacted to the news of Jane Foster's Thor becoming part of the MCU on their Twitters.

Aaron retweeted the announcement, replying with "Well wow." In a subsequent tweet he added, "Consider me thunderously excited. The Jane Foster Thor storyline I did with [Dauterman], (Eisner winner!) [Matt Wilson] & so many more talented artists is one of my proudest moments in comics. I can't wait to see [Taika Waititi] & Natalie Portman bring the Goddess of Thunder to life."

Meanwhile, Dauterman reacted to a different tweet with a very enthusiastic "HOLY SHIT."

After Odinson lost his ability to do so after the events of the "Original Sin" event, Jane Foster picked up Thor's hammer and became the Mighty Thor. At the time of her transformation, Jane had cancer, and the use of Mjolnir only made things worse. It's unclear just what Thor: Love and Thunder will adapt of that arc.
