Fans may have been given a first look at the new armor Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster will wear in Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
Thor: Love and Thunder News, a fan account for the upcoming MCU movie, posted an image of a t-shirt “crew members shared from wrapping on the movie.” The merch features a colorful print of Thor, Valkyrie, and Jane’s Mighty Thor pictured in their new costumes. Anthony Rose’s Instagram was credited as the original source of the images, though this particular shirt doesn’t currently appear on his grid.

In the artwork, Jane’s Thor costume appears to be inspired by The Mighty Thor comic written by Jason Aaron, drawn by Russell Dauterman with colors by Matt Wilson. She’s positioned next to the God of Thunder, wearing an outfit faithful to the one worn by her comic book counterpart, right the way down to the helmet that she originally sported as a mask to keep her identity hidden from all, including Odin.
While there’s no evidence of the shirt being posted by a crew member on Instagram, the circulation of the photograph does seem to coincide with Thor: Love and Thunder’s wrap of production. Chris Hemsworth confirmed at the start of the month that the Thor 4 had finished filming as he posted an image of himself and director Taika Waititi, confirming the end of the shoot.
“It’s also national don’t flex day so I thought this super relaxed photo was appropriate,” Hemsworth wrote, referencing his ripped physique in the snap. “The film is gonna be bats*** crazy off the wall funny and might also pull a heart string or two. Lots of love, lots of thunder! Thank you to all the cast and crew who made this another incredible Marvel journey. Buckle in, get ready and see ya in cinemas!!”
Thor 4’s all-star ensemble features Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson, Christian Bale, and Russell Crowe as the mighty Zeus, father of the Olympian gods. Waititi will also once again voice Thor’s alien pal Korg in the movie, which is currently slated for release on May 6, 2022. It will follow Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and many more in the MCU’s Phase 4.
