Marvel has released a first look at Natalie Portman as the female Thor in a new trailer for upcoming superhero movie Thor: Love and Thunder.
The 40-year-old actress – who played Jane Foster in the first two Thor films in 2011 and 2013 – will return to the franchise after nearly a decade to play Mighty Thor.
In the teaser clip, she can be seen masked while wielding Thor’s magical hammer Mjolnir as he watches in awe.
Chris Hemsworth, 38, will reprise his role as Thor in the fourth film about the Norse god, which hits theaters July 8.
The trailer begins with Thor running through a forest as a child, teenager, and adult.
As he puts down his hammer, the superhero says, “These hands were once used in battle. Now they are just humble tools for peace.
“I have to find out who I am.
“I want to go my own way. Live in the moment. My superhero days are over.”
Chris Pratt also stars in the first look clip as Peter Quill, the Star Lord superhero from the Guardians of the Galaxy series.

A funny moment occurs between the two when Quill says to Thor, “Remember what I told you. If you ever feel lost, just look into the eyes of the people you love.”
When Quill tries to look over at his love interest, Gamora, Thor stares at him intently while Quill adds, “Not me.”
The upcoming film will take Thor on a “journey he’s never felt before — a quest for inner peace,” Marvel said.
However, his retreat is interrupted by a galactic assassin named Gorr the God Butcher, played by Christian Bale, who seeks the annihilation of the gods.
To fight the threat, Thor enlists the help of King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Portman).
Together they will embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the secret of the godslayer’s vengeance and stop him before it’s too late.
