Natalie Portman Says She Is NOT In The Avengers

Natalie Portman Says She Is NOT In <i>The Avengers</i>

While talking with Today Online Natalie Portman talked about her up coming Thor role, as well as reveals she will NOT be in The Avengers like previously stated.



Today Online chatted with Natalie Portman about Thor, which is due out on May 6. She also spilled that she is signed on for two more Thor movies and that she is not going to be in The Avengers.



On how Thor compares to other action adventure movies she has been in:

"Well, it was really amazing to get to work with Ken Branagh on this and that was the biggest draw for me in the beginning. On some of the big action films, things like character and story can get a little lost and be overshadowed by all the big bang stuff. With Ken, he was very concerned with the text and with our characters. It was like, 'We're going to work on this as if it were Shakespeare.'"


On if she read Thor comics before she shot the movie:

"They showed me the Thor comic books when we started talking about it but, really, the first thing that interested me was working with Ken. I must have watched Much Ado About Nothing like 500 times, I love that film so much. (Laughs) He's just so wonderful and has really the best spirit and energy and focus, and it was so exciting to go to work every day. I can't say enough about Ken. He's lovely."

On Chris Hemsworth:

"He's such a sweet guy. He's incredible and a really talented actor. Ken told me from Day 1 how wonderful he is and there's no better judge than Ken. But, on top of that, he is deeply nice, like just a really good person and unaffected by all of this hoopla. He could do everything both physically and emotionally, and playing Thor is a part that is very demanding on both levels. You have to get the tone right and try to make it realistic in a heightened world. It's a comic book movie but you also want to relate to the guy. Chris just nailed it."


On if she is in any other Marvel movies:

"I'm not in The Avengers, but I'm signed up for the next two (Thor) sequels if they are made. I think these inter-related Marvel movies are great fun. The Avengers will be like Ocean's Eleven with the superhero all-stars!"
