Natalie Portman: I’m done with the Marvel Universe

08.18.16 7 months ago

For anyone holding out hope that Natalie Portman will reprise her Marvel role of Dr. Jane Foster any time soon, the actress has some bad news.

“As far as I know, I'm done,” Portman told the Wall Street Journal. “I mean, I don't know if maybe one day they'll ask for an Avengers 7 or whatever, I have no idea, but as far as I know I'm done.”

The Oscar-winning actress starred as Jane, an astrophysicist and love interest of Thor in the first two movies in that franchise. The female lead in the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok will be played by Creed star Tessa Thompson.

Portman”s relationship with Marvel took a turn for the worse back in December 2011. At that time, the actress was miffed about Patty Jenkins being ousted as director from Thor: The Dark World, this according to THR.com. Jenkins was ultimately replaced by Alan Taylor.

Thor: Ragnarok is slated for a November 2017 release. And Avengers 7 is bound to happen some day.
