It’s Chris. It’s a Thor film. He is Thor, it’s a Thor film. She’s in it.

Uhhhh... That’s not the attitude/story I was hoping for. In the comics, Jane IS Thor. The previous Thor is still around, but he essentially reverts/becomes the “Odinson”.

But Jane should just be Thor. Hopefully that will be the case by the end of the film.
