Natalie Portman's Thor Casting Means We're Getting A Whole Different Thunder God
Jul 14, 2009 17:32
Natalie Portman finally gets a role that's not about art. And or boring love stories which include magic toys and dramatic death. Now her role in the God of Thunder has us all surprised. Spoilers ahead!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Portman will play Jane Foster, the human nurse from the early Thor comics who becomes Thor's first love. Don't groan just yet. Because it was that long ago, her role is going to be 'updated' and she'll be the link to Thor's human emotions. Which, damnit, thanks to this, we won't be seeing much of Thor's Thor but more towards his human alter ego, Dr. Donald Blake.
However this could also mean that this could be the start of another Hollywood franchise. To star the show from its very roots when Thor's father sends him to earth to learn some humility. According to HR:
The story centers on Thor, a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. As punishment, Thor is cast down to Earth and forced to live among humans but once here, he 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.
Portman joins Chris Hemsworth, who played Daddy George Kirk in the recent Star Trek reboot, as Thor, and Tom Hiddleston as Loki, the god of mischief.
