Natalie Portman returns this week to play Jane Foster in the sequel to Thor called Thor: The Dark World. We haven’t seen the movie yet, but we’re pretty sure that it’s going to be a success. How can a movie that features Norse gods, wormholes and a mysterious space weapon called the Aether not be great?
We don’t want to spoil anything, but here is some basic background on Portman’s character in this movie in case you don’t know. Jane Foster is an astrophysicist and Thor’s love interest who has to go to his home planet of Asgard after getting a mysterious infection (from a space weapon, nothing sexual). In the first movie, Thor was the one who had to adapt to a new planet when he was sent to Earth. Now it is Foster’s turn to experience being on a new planet.
Whether you’re a fan of Thor or comic book movies in general, we’re guessing you’re definitely a fan of Natalie Portman.
