Portman set for Thor

Jul. 13, 2009by:

The news has been rumored for a while but today we get confirmation: Natalie Portman will star in THOR for Marvel Studios. Portman will play Jane Foster, the mortal nurse who falls for Thor. She joins the previously cast Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tom Hiddleston (Loki). This may also mean that the rumors of Jessica Biel joining the cast could mean she's Enchantress (or perhaps not in the film at all).

The release also includes this brief snyposis of the film's plot:

This epic adventure spans the Marvel Universe; from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard. At the center of the story is The Mighty Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans as punishment. Once here, Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

THOR isn't scheduled to begin filming until early next year with a May 20, 2011 release planned. Is it a coincidence that Portman's casting is announced just about 10 days before Comic-Con?....

Extra Tidbit: STAR WARS, V FOR VENDETTA and now THOR? Portman gets a top spot in the Fanboy Hall of Fame.

im with Crazydud

do i like ms Portman?
um, no.
do i absolutely adore her persona to the point of The Joker like insanity due to my love towards her?
...oh my god yes.

in regards to her acting ability, shes more than proven herself. From Mars Attacks, to the SNL rap sketch...if it's being filmed, she can do it.

love you Nat, I'm coming home soon baby.
(yes, i like to pretend she's expecting me at home...and?)

Top spot?

Top spot in Fanboy Hall of Fame? Maybe. Depends where your fanboyness lies. Dushku has Buffy, Tru Calling and Dollhouse.

I've always had a love for Portman ever since I saw her in HEAT, but since then she's really proven herself. Can't wait..

"It's the PORTMAN Motherfucker! Drink till I'm sick!"

Sounds cool, but...

..the actual press release says she'll be updated. And we havent heard any news of Donald Blake (and WHY THE FUCK havent we, Marvel?), so im assuming Jane is now gonna be a Goddess or some bullshit.

I'm not much of a Thor fan, but if anyone could get me to see this movie it's Portman.

Wow. I have to say Marvel knows how to cast their films. I wish they owned all their characters.

Finally, some great casting news.

Natalie Portman brings both talent and star power to the film. I was worried about those Jessica Biel rumors (which I hope don't come true, with her possibly being cast as another character). Sure she's extremely attractive, but she possesses the same amount of talent as Paul Walker. Shes the female Paul Walker.

Hell yeah!

To hell with Catwoman, get her to play Harley Quinn. She's got the laugh and the butt for it. :)

Cool, now all she has to do is play Catwoman in the next Batman movie and she'll OWN the Fanboy Hall of Fame.
