Perhaps “kicking and screaming” was a bit of an exageration, but Natalie Portman certainly wasn’t happy to return as Jane Foster in THOR : THE DARK WORLD.
Apparently, the tiny dancer (+10 points for Black Swan reference) wanted to abandon her multi-film contract with the House of Ideas, but Kevin Feige and crew flexed their mighty muscle to keep her on board.
Here’s what we know, as TG Daily relates
Ironically, we recently learned that Natalie Portman is being ‘forced’ into her contractual role as the romantic lead in Thor 2, another Marvel Film Universe sequel, despite a desire to back out.
While I’m not the biggest Portman fan in the world, I appreciate a strong continuity between films. We don’t want another Holmes-Gyllenhaal fiasco on our hands, do we? You know, forgetting that Maggie Gyllenhaal was a better actress and the superior cutie… it still ruined our precious continuity!
Whoa, whoa, whoa… I’ve had an epiphany. What if director Alan Taylor threw Mags into the film as Jane Foster? That’s one re-cast I’d support.
What? I’m a bit obsessed with the G-Haal.
Get over it.
