Natalie Portman Done With Marvel

Natalie Portman will not be back for Thor: Ragnarok or any other Marvel movie.

Portman, who played Jane Foster in the Thor movies, filled in WSJ.

“As far as I know I’m done,” Portman said. “I mean I don’t know if maybe one day they’ll ask for an Avengers 7 or whatever, I have no idea, but as far as I know I’m done. That was, all a great thing to be a part of.”

Thor: Ragnarok has a new female lead with Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie.

Regarding Natalie Portman, there was said to be contention between her and Marvel while Thor 2 was filming. Reportedly, Portman was good friends with Patty Jenkins, the original Thor: The Dark World director, and Portman wasn’t happy when Jenkins was let go. It was even said Portman was forced back to do Thor 2, but didn’t want to return. Who knows? Maybe with Patty Jenkins directing Wonder Woman, there’s a place for Natalie Portman over at DC.

“Thor: Raganarok” has a November 3, 2017 release directed by Taika Waititi starring Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk/Banner, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster and Anthony Hopkins as Odin.

Natalie Portman Said To Be Out Of Thor: Ragnarok

This news shouldn’t be all too surprising if you followed any of the Thor 2 news.

According to the Hollywood trade sites, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor will have a new love interest in Thor: Ragnarok, played by Creed star Tessa Thompson.

The character is presently unknown, but Deadline says the character “will be kind of a superhero” and will appear in other Marvel movies.

THR also has it that Jaimie Alexander is returning as Sif for Thor: Ragnarok and that filming starts in June.

Regarding Natalie Portman, it was said a while back she wasn’t happy with Marvel over the ouster of Patty Jenkins from directing Thor: The Dark World, and that Portman was forced to return for the movie that she didn’t originally want to be a part of, but only agreed when Jenkins came on board. Obviously when things went south between Jenkins and Marvel over Thor 2, things went further south between Portman and Marvel. There is also the fact that Thor: Ragnarok looks to be set away from Earth and more in space, so obviously Portman’s Jane Foster wouldn’t come along for the ride.

Thor: Ragnarok has a November 3, 2017 release directed by Taika Waititi also starring Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk and Cate Blanchett is the rumored villain (possibly Hela).

Natalie Portman Hints At Ms. Marvel & Black Panther Movies?

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:11139:]]

Natalie Portman all but confirms Marvel Studios is developing movies for a central female figure as well as one for a non-white role.

Portman, playing Jane Foster in November’s Thor 2, tells SciFiNow that she heard it’s already in the works.

“There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming – I have heard is coming – and, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters.

“But they do definitely have strong female characters in them and I think it’s a testament to the people who run Marvel, their respect, their just normal human respect for women, the way they want to characterise them; you can tell when men talk to you, as just a person or as a ‘woman’”

There has been recent speculation and talks that the female character could be Ms. Marvel, of which Katee Sackhoff has been rumored to be attached to; however, it did just become known that Marvel Studios is in early stages of developing an Agent Carter TV series.

Regarding the non-white character, it’s speculated that could be the Black Panther, as Stan Lee recently stated Marvel Studios will be doing a film based on the superhero from Wakanda. Another possibility is for Luke Cage, an Avenger in the comic books and member of Heroes For Hire. Back in January, Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb mentioned, “Just like they announced Guardians of the Galaxy, we are certainly looking at Heroes For Hire, which is Luke Cage and Iron Fist.”
