THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER Star Natalie Portman Shares Excitement For "Silly And Funny" Marvel Movie

There's a huge amount of excitement surrounding Thor: Love and Thunder, and while the movie was among those delayed by Marvel Studios thanks to COVID-19, pre-production is currently taking place in earnest in Australia. Cameras will start rolling in January, and cast members like Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman are already there getting ready for the project. 

During last night's episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the host caught up with Portman and asked for an update on plans for Thor's latest adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Confirming that she is indeed playing the "Mighty Thor," Portman said she's "just prepping" at the moment and praised Taika Waititi's vision for the God of Thunder. While she wouldn't reveal any specifics, the actress did say that the movie is "gonna be really silly, and funny, and great." That definitely sounds in line with what we've come to expect from the filmmaker!

Asked about the work that goes into training to become an MCU superhero, Portman added: "I'm trying...I'm super tired after working out. And during. And dreading before!"
