We recently discovered that the Warriors Three would be returning for Thor: Ragnarok which lead to the question of whether we’d be seeing other familiar faces as well. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Natalie Portman confirmed she would not be returning in her role of astrophysicist, Jane Foster, for the third installment in the Thor series, and as far as she knows she’s “done” with Marvel, and while she’s thankful for the experience and really enjoyed herself there is no immediate plans to return, but she’s open to reprise her role in the future.
“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.”
It is unknown if Jane Foster’s absence will be addressed in the film. I for one would love to see Portman taking on the mantle of Thor in the future. Hopefully with the arrival of Captain Marvel we’re able to get more female lead films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A-Force anyone?
Sound off below, do you think Jane Foster should return in the future or should Thor give Lady Sif a chance?
Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Taika Waititi, and it stars Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Sir Anthony Hopkins, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, with Jeff Goldblum and Cate Blanchett. Thor: Ragnarok opens in theaters November 3, 2017.
