Kevin Feige reveals why Jane Foster isn't in Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok Natalie Portman Chris Hemsworth

We already know that Natalie Portman won't be making an appearance as Jane Foster in THOR: RAGNAROK, but now Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has revealed to Entertainmen Weekly the reason why Foster won't be returning in Thor's latest adventure. It turns out that the answer is simple: they broke up.

It's a little anticlimactic, but not exactly surprising. When asked last year whether she was slated to appear in any future Marvel project, Natalie Portman said that "as far as I know, I’m done" with the MCU.

With Jane Foster out of the picture, Chris Hemsworth says that Thor is "off exploring the universe, still trying to police it and control the mayhem, but he’s certainly enjoying being a drifter, being a solo cowboy out there." Although it's not yet certain whether their relationship will be romantic in nature, Thor may not be a solo cowboy for long once he meets Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) on the planet of Sakaar. Kevin Feige explains:

We wanted Thor to encounter somebody that was near his equal and that his relationship with Jane may have evolved in unexpected ways in between The Dark World and Ragnarok and we wanted to pit him against a character who was much more his equal and in many ways his superior. Valkyrie is trying to not embrace any sort of Asgardian heritage that she has. Thor thinks maybe that will create a bond between them and, on the contrary, she wants to forget it all entirely.

THOR: RAGNAROK is set for a November 3, 2017 release.

I'd be happy to know if Jane Foster hit it off with Chris O'Dowd's character and never look back. Portman never really had much chemistry with Hemsworth anyway.

I don't want to trash Hemsworth, because I still think he was a good pick for Thor and his comedic timing is good, but I have yet to see a movie where he delivers on the romance front. He got the looks but I never felt any chemistry with any actress on screen.

"a character ...

... who was much more his equal and in many ways his superior." Feige, c'mon, do as all a favor. After Infinity War, replace Iron Man with Riri, make Jane Foster female Thor and Mike Morales new Spider-Man. Add Vaklyrie and Captain Marvel to the mix and you have new Avengers. And then say it's the most powerful team up ever.

Oh come on Feige. Don't sugarcoat this with a breakup! You cast a way too good and desired actress for a mundane damsel in distress role and by the second movie already didn't really know how to convincingly keep her involved in the plot. It happens, there is no... well, little shame in admitting that.

Since these are the last couple of films leading up to Infinity War, I'm perfectly fine with Marvel cutting ties with any dead weight at this point and just focusing on any and all other aspects that are much more vital in story and character development.

So you didn't take my suggestion in coming up with some new material?

I'm not exactly sure who keeps attacking you Soloist, but you might want to take it up with the Joblo staff. Looks more like someone was able to hack the account.
