The upcoming film’s director Taika Waititi shared his thoughts on Jane Foster fighting breast cancer as she did in the comic books.
“I think that’s a really powerful part of the books. I think it’s really cool that she’s fighting this thing and there’s two battles going on. Personally I really love that storyline. But whether it ends up in the film is yet to be seen,” Taika told Variety.
In the comic books, Thor becomes unworthy to wield his magical hammer and his former love interest Jane picks up Mjolnir and calls herself the Mighty Thor. Meanwhile, Jane is also diagnosed and treated for breast cancer.
The film is expected to begin shooting early next year.
Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on November 5, 2021.
