Jane Foster finally joins the roster of heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Mighty Thor. Her character is also a new addition to the Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure Park.
Along with the theatrical release of Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder, Jane Foster made her debut at the Avengers Campus. A Disney cast member cosplaying as Mighty Thor appeared and interacted with park-goers and fans. A video clip has been shared on YouTube.
The Avengers Campus has many staple characters that can be found in the park all year long but, recently, a number of new characters have been making appearances. Mighty Thor is the most recent for this year.
Before that, Ms. Marvel also joined the Avengers Campus in celebration of the series’ premiere on Disney+. America Chavez also made a special appearance for the theatrical release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Moon Knight was also spotted on the campus.
Jane Foster The Mighty Thor
Jane Foster debuted in Marvel’s Journey into Mystery #84 in 1962. She has been a supporting character in the Thor comics, but Jane began to wield the Mjolnir in 2014. Thor reclaimed the hammer and his title as well, but Jane still became Mighty Thor in another limited comic series.
Natalie Portman portrayed Jane Foster in MCU in the 2011 Thor movie as the titular hero’s love interest. The actress reprised the role in 2013 in Thor: The Dark World. She did not appear in Ragnarok but came back for Love and Thunder.
Thor: Love and Thunder follows Thor in his journey to self-discovery, but his respite was interrupted by the galactic killer, Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale). Thor seeks help from King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), and Jane Foster. All three go on a harrowing journey in the cosmos to stop the God Butcher from his evil plans.
