Here’s a bit of breaking news – Natalie Portman has just been signed to appear in the upcoming Thor movie directed by Kenneth Branagh. Portman will be playing Jane Foster, love interest to the Norse god.
At first she was a nurse for Donald Blake, eventually developing feelings for him, not knowing that Blake and Thor were one and the same. The love triangle went on for a while, until Thor revealed his secret identity to Jane, and in return even took her to Asgard with him. There, Jane was briefly granted immortality and the power of gods until after failing to pass the tests of courage set forth by Odin. At this point, stripped of her new powers, Jane left Asgard to returned to Earth. Jane and Thor eventually broke up, and she later met her current husband Dr. Keith Kincaid and had a son with him. For a time, Odin even wiped the memories Jane had of Thor away from her, but she eventually gained them back. After that, Jane was occasionally seen assisting the Avengers when the need arose.
The movie is still scheduled to hit theaters May 20, 2011.
Now, it’s your turn to talk.
