The Thor movies have long been an outlier within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with many quoting certain elements that hindered the first two films. One of these elements was the casting of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster; and in a recent interview about her upcoming film Annihilation, Portman discussed her future with Marvel Studios:
“I’m completely open to everything, but I have no news about that.”
Jane previously appeared in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. The couple broke up after that as the character did not appear in Thor: Ragnarok.
Currently in the comics, Foster wields her lover’s hammer as the current incarnation of Thor. Might that be a potential incentive for Portman to reprise her role?
Thor: Ragnarok will be available on Digital HD on February 20th, with the Blu-ray and DVD releasing on March 6th.
