Natalie Portman is all set to return as Mighty Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder. During a recent interaction with media, the actress while talking about her character, shared a major spoiler about the film and what Jane Foster is going through.
Talking about if her version of Thor is different from Chris', she said, "Completely different. But I think he's obviously very assured and experienced in being a superhero, and she's just trying to figure it out."
She revealed that, unlike Thor, Jane Foster is new at being a superhero and using her powers so she is more careful. She added, "She also keeps reverting to human form, so there's kind of danger always that, like, it might be her last moment getting to experience that. I don't know that might be... that might be a big spoiler, sorry."

According to the comics, Jane Foster after being diagnosed with Cancer, turns into Mighty Thor after wielding the Mjolnir and even joins the Avengers. The film is supposedly taking a similar route for the MCU however, the arc might remain shorter, possibly ending in a feature film, or two.
