THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Star Natalie Portman Promises To Get "Jacked" To Play The New God Of Thunder

Natalie Portman has returned to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and will transform into the new God of Thunder in Thor: Love and Thunder. Now, both the actress and Kevin Feige have commented on the news...

Arguably the biggest announcement at Comic-Con on Saturday was the news that Natalie Portman is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe to play Jane Foster/Thor in Taika Waititi's Thor: Love and Thunder. That's going to be a game-changer for franchise, and the actress has now responded to the news on her Instagram account. 

As you can see, she's promised to get "jacked" to play the new God of Thunder and says we should treat her Comic-Con appearance as a "before" photo as she looks to get into MCU shape. 

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, meanwhile, has also commented on the news and explains why Waititi wanted to bring this version of Thor to the big screen. "We love the story -- it's one of the best comic runs recently," he says. "[Director Taika Waititi] would flip through and read that run while he was doing 'Ragnarok.' And I think when he agreed to come back and do another Thor, he was like, 'How do we--?' This is a very big movie that'll be folding in a lot of elements."

"That is a huge important part of it. He pitched it to us, and we were totally in. We loved it. We'd been in touch with Natalie. She's part of the MCU family and we put she and Taika together. It took one meeting and she agreed to do it."

Needless to say, this movie is shaping up to be something special, but seeing as it's not set to be released until next November, it's obviously going to be a while before we see Jane as Thor!
