The new photo doesn’t reveal much in terms of plot or what to expect, but gives fans a first look at both characters in the same shot, dressed as the mighty God of Thunder. While Thor’s armor appears to be tinted gold and blue, Portman’s armor appears to be more traditional and more focused on how we’ve seen Thor in past Marvel Studios entries.

Speaking about the powerful new addition to the film, director Taika Vati said in interview with Empire that meeting Jane after so many years, not just as an ordinary person, but as someone worthy enough to wield Mjolnir, will not be easy for Thor to understand.
“It’s been about eight years,” Waititi said. “She had a very different life, and then the love of your life comes back on stage, and now she is dressed like you. For Thor, that’s a real bummer.»
