Marvel, which introduced a new female character Thor to its readers in October 2014, decided to reveal her real name.
As one of the creators of the series, Jason Aaron, told the New York Times, the former lover of Thor himself, Jane Foster, turned out to be the new mistress of the lethal hammer. "Jane Foster has been a part of Thor's comics and mythology since the beginning. The process of becoming Thor is slowly killing her. From this point on, her real story begins," he commented. Note that in the new series, Jane Foster is fighting breast cancer.
According to Aaron, the majority of new comic book readers are women and young girls. "More and more graphic novels appeal to this particular audience," he added.
Recall that in the movie adaptations of the comics dedicated to Thor - "Thor" and "Thor 2: The Kingdom of Darkness" - the role of Jane Foster was played by the actress Natalie Portman. At the time of this writing, it was not known if the new storyline will be reflected in future Marvel movies.
The next movie titled "Thor 3: Rognarok" will be presented to viewers in November 2017. Its full cast has yet to be announced.
