She confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con last month that she is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a female version of Thor. 

But since the movie isn’t slated to be released until 2012, Natalie Portman has plenty of time to prepare for her superhero role.

The 38-year-old Oscar winner was spotted out and about in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles on Monday looking relaxed in a summery ensemble.

Portman made her first MCU appearance in 2011’s Thor as love interest Jane Foster opposite Chris Hemsworth.

She reprised the role in 2013’s Thor: The Dark World but was absent from the third film in the series, Thor Ragnarok, released in 2017.

Her character briefly appeared in Avengers: Endgame, for which previously shot footage was used, but when she attended that movie’s premiere in Hollywood, it sparked speculation that her association with Marvel was not over.

At Comic-Con on July 20, she took the stage with Hemsworth and Ragnarok director Taika Waititi who is set to helm the next feature Thor: Love And Thunder.  

The fourth installment is based on Jason Aaron’s Mighty Thor comic series which details how Jane Foster is worthy enough to wield Mjolnir and take over as the new Thor.
