Thor: Love and Thunder is a fascinating film with strong performances from its lead cast. One such member of the cast that stood out was Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster. She reprised the role after a substantial period of time and gave a good performance as the character in the movie.
However, questions remain about the future of Jane Foster as the Mighty Thor in the MCU. Natalie Portman addresses these questions and shared her thoughts on them in a recent interview.
Natalie Portman Talks About Jane Foster and The Character’s Future in the MCU
In a recent conversation with Los Angeles Times, Natalie Portman opened up about her character Jane Foster and her future in the MCU. She said:
“I really love Taika’s ability to not have any rules about how [a comic book movie is] supposed to be. Having that kind of freeform and free possibility is so lucky, and really lucky for Jane as a female character, in particular. He really made room for her to be ridiculous and weak, and she didn’t just have to be this kick-ass tough girl all the time, which I think is sometimes the interpretation of what a feminist character would be.”
Talking about the future of the character, she said:
“I am open to anything. It’s such a cool character and I feel like anything is possible.”
Finally, she remarked:
“I think a lot of fans are gonna potentially assume, ‘Oh, OK, this is the passing on of the torch’… I’m not privy to any plans Marvel has for the future, but I don’t think that’s the case.”
It remains to be seen what the future holds for both, Natalie Portman and Jane Foster.
Thor: Love and Thunder is playing in theaters worldwide.
