Thor: Ragnarok sadly does not see the return of Natalie Portman. Natalie Portman is known for her role as the lovely Jane Foster in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But why is she not reprising her role in the last of the Thor trilogy movies?
According to Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, he is trying his best to ignore the rest of the Marvel universe. He just wants to “make my own awesome movie.” And that excludes Natalie Portman playing Chris Hemsworth’s love interest on screen. At some point, Foster leaves him because of some relationship issues. Most likely, a long distance relationship got to her.
According to reports, Thor is going to have a new love interest in Thor: Ragnarok. However, in her place is Tessa Thompson. Thompson is set to play Valkyrie, cites The Guardian. Valkyrie is the new love interest of Thor. But will viewers love her as they have loved Jane Foster?
Although Waititi chooses to continue the trilogy without Jane Foster, Ragnarok could still continue with these Jane Foster story possibilities based in the comics.
In the comics, Odinson considers Jane Foster as a candidate for Mjolnir. Which means she is possibly the successor to the hammer. If anything happens to Thor, she can take his place.
If Natalie Portman comes back and reprises her role, she would have the ability to pick up Mjolnir. By wielding Mjolnir means Jane will have super human strength, speed and control over lightning.
And what is interesting is that in the comics, she demonstrates better control over the hammer than Thor ever did. She can change its trajectory and velocity in mid-throw. She spins it around her enemies to trap them.
If Thor: Ragnarok is going to be the last of the trilogy, it is only fitting that the original cast members return. And if speculations about Mjolnir getting a huge crack holds true, then that means Thor sustains horrible damage. Jane Foster can become his saving grace after Doctor Strange fixes the hammer.
Watch out for Thor: Ragnarok to hit theaters on October 25, 2017.
