Crystal Dynamics announced in April that Marvel’s Avengers’ next hero would be Jane Foster as the Mighty Thor. A new War Table blog post names the date that fans will get to see the Goddess of Thunder in action.
Mark Monday, June 27 on your calendar as the date to watch a War Table Deep Dive detailing Jane’s powers and abilities. Jane will become available as part of the 2.5 update, which Crystal Dynamics says is “just around the corner” despite not having a release date. Jane’s arrival likely isn’t too far away if Crystal Dynamics plans to capitalize on the character’s Norse-powered return in the upcoming Thor: Love & Thunder, which hits theaters on July 8.
It’ll be interesting to see how Crystal Dynamics differentiates Jane moveset from Thor’s. In the comics, Jane possessed all of the abilities of Thor during her time as the Goddess of Thunder. The only notable difference was her ability to manipulate Mjolnir with greater control and creativity (especially when throwing it) than her predecessors, so that’s something the studio can certainly hone in and expand upon.
