Natalie Portman is officially done with the Marvel universe

mycherrypop1It looks like we won’t be seeing Natalie Portman in any Marvel film anytime soon. Portman played Jane Foster, an astrophysicist and love interest, opposite Chris Hemsworth in both of the Thor movies.  She confirmed that she won’t be returning to the blockbuster franchise.

The topic came up when she was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal about the her directorial debut for the file A Tale of Love and Darkness, which is an adaptation of Amos Oz’s book of the same name.

She told the Wall Street Journal: “As far as I know, I’m done,”. “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, but it was a great thing to be a part of.”

Her absence from the currently filming, Thor: Ragnarok was announced by Marvel president Kevin Feige. He revealed this in a podcast with Empire magazine. He went on to say that there were many reasons for this, most of which will be obvious when fans see the movie.

Marvel leads are generally given long multi year contracts and are only signed on if they agree to at least seven movies. While this might seem like a dream come true for any actor, once successful most actors like to vary their roles. Supporting actors on the other hand have never been set to appear too often mostly due to the storylines of the movies planned well in advance.
