So, the much-hyped Avengers: Infinity War has released worldwide. It is safe to say now that the movie has lived up to the expectations of the fans. The 2 hours 29 minutes marvel of a movie has critics and fans going gaga over it. It sees the culmination of 10 years of MCU, which now has 19 movies in total. Many characters, minor and major, made their return to fight Thanos. But there were a few who were missing as well. While the internet is obsessing over the absence of Ant-Man and, more importantly, Hawkeye, there are quite a few who nobody seems to be missing.
Valkyrie makes no splash in Avengers: Infinity War. Also, missing from this entry was Jane Foster, Thor's scientist girlfriend. In the franchise, the character is played by Natalie Portman, who, as per her recent interview, is ready to revive the role but no one has asked her. You see, Natalie and the makers of Thor: The Dark World had a fallout! And that was it for her. While Iron Man's girlfriend, Pepper Potts makes extremely brief appearances in many MCU movies, including two Avengers, Jane is nowhere to be seen apart from first two Thor movies. But seems like, now, the makers will have to bring her back into the mix.
IF YOU HAVE NOT WATCHED THE MOVIE AND DON'T WANT SPOILERS DO NOT READ AHEAD!
In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos wins and wipes out half the living souls with a snap of his fingers. Right before that Vision and Scarlett Witch put up a brave fight against him. Scarlett was the only one who could have destroyed Vision's stone - Mind - because she was also a product of it. It is revealed in Age of Ultron that Scarlett Witch and her brother Quicksilver had agreed to go under experiment with Loki's scepter, which eventually gave them their superpowers. The scepter was home to the mind stone. Thus, in simple words, Scarlett Witch's powers shared the same composition as mind stone. Vision says, that only she can destroy it because of this.
Now, Jane Foster, though for a brief period, has been the host for Aether, in The Dark World. The element also involuntarily gave her a few powers for a very brief period of time. Aether is, in fact, the reality stone. Which could mean that Jane and the reality stone's DNA have also interacted with each other? Maybe something of Aether is left behind? With Vision and Scarlett Witch dead, Jane Foster could play a vital role in destroying the reality stone in Avengers 4. I think, she should!
As per original comics, Jane was not this trivial character that MCU has reduced her to. She was so important that she even succeeded Thor in Asgard and wielded his hammer. It is about time MCU also gave this lovable characters her due credit. Destruction of reality stone seems to be the way!
