Recent set pictures from Thor: Love and Thunder hint at a possible flashback at Thor: The Dark World. The fourth installment in the Thor franchise is filming as we speak. However, the movie was one of many that hit a delay but that doesn’t mean that there are no updates. We will once again see Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. Moreover, the latter is also becoming the Mighty Thor so that is something to root for. Now, new set pictures hint at a possible flashback at Thor: The Dark World.
Flashback at Thor: The Dark World Events in Love and Thunder?
One thing is for sure and that Natalie Portman is playing a major role in the MCU going forward. While we will get to see Gorr the God Butcher (Christian Bale) and the Guardians, Jane Foster becoming the Mighty Thor is a treat on its own. However, her returns have led to certain speculation that Love and Thunder will dive into some events from Thor: The Dark World. Some set images are surfacing on Twitter, check these out:
Speculation for Thor: Love and Thunder
It seems like the scene filmed yesterday was a flashback. Chris and Natalie were wearing wigs similar to their Thor and Jane ones from a deleted scene in TDW.

The Dark World has surely become more important ever since the sets of Avengers: Endgame. This flashback, however, can also explore the fallout of their relationships and just exactly what forced Jane to resurface back into Thor’s life. Thor has grown a lot as a character since the events of The Dark World and Foster has been actively absent. Let’s hope the flashback dives into this as well.
The hairstyle is a major callback to The Dark World which makes us believe that the flashback is indeed a true possibility. Thor: Love and Thunder already have a major plot to cover and now it is a question of whether it will be a wise decision to include so much in just one film. But one thing is for sure and that is Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster is now active in the MCU and here to stay.
