If you didn’t know, Natalie will be the first female to play the iconic character – and will not be going by “Lady Thor.”

“She’s actually The Mighty Thor. The comics had the female Thor when Jane becomes Thor, and she’s The Mighty Thor,” Natalie clarified.

“We haven’t started. More time to get jacked. Which I have not. I’ve got the carbo-loading down, but not the exercise part,” Natalie explained of the upcoming film schedule, which was postponed amid the global health crisis.

She went on to say she is “very excited” for the new film, which she said will begin shooting in Australia in early 2021.

“Obviously everything is weird because of pandemic time, who knows what’s happening. It will be exciting and I’m interested to see if I can gain muscle.”

She also revealed her favorite Marvel character: Tessa Thompson‘s Valkyrie, who will also appear in Thor: Love and Thunder.

“Major love for that woman,” she said of Tessa. Check out some photos of Natalie teasing the role with the iconic hammer…
