It’s So Wild to Feel Strong

Since many Marvel fans are currently busy with the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, this Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, and what it all means for Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness, it is already a while ago we’ve heard something new about the other movie that has already completed filming and is out next year: Thor: love and thunder. With the film that brings the Guardians of The Galaxy into play and sees the once-unthinkable return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, the fourth solo outing for the God of Thunder is set to be pretty big. And it’s not the only thing packed, as Natalie Portman had to go through rigorous training to get in shape for her Marvel return, as she revealed in a recent interview.

Speaking to Vanity Fair about her upcoming gig, which will be her first since Thor: The Dark World in 2013 – if you disregard her cleverly crafted appearance in Avengers: Endgame – the Oscar winner discussed how she was after building her body for the role “feels strong for the first time.”

“It was great fun,” Natalie Portman said Vanity Fair. “I worked with a trainer, Naomi Pendergast, I think four months before filming and then of course during filming. We did a lot of weight training and a lot of protein shakes – heavyweight training I’ve done I’ve never done before. Of course, I never really tried to get big. It was very physical so it was a lot of both flexibility and strength training. “She later added,” It definitely helps you get into character and it definitely changed the way I move. You walk different, you feel different. I mean, it’s so wild to feel strong for the first time in my life. “

It has been a poorly kept secret for some time that Portman would return to the franchise to re-appear as Thor alongside Chris Hemsworth, and the story will turn her into The Mighty Thor, just like in the Jason Aaron comic book arc. While you might think that the writer who came up with the concept only has a clue of what everything will look like on screen, when asked about it by a fan on social media, Aaron said, “What a little? I know that makes me even more excited. I have all the world’s trust in Taika. “

Taika Waititi managed to bring Thor back from the brink in Ragnarok, overtake the Norse god and banish the spirits of Thor: The Dark World that many MCU fans still consider their most unpopular film in the franchise. For that reason alone, this Thor movie doesn’t seem like it is in better hands, but if there’s even more reason to be excited, it should be remembered that there are almost as many recurring characters in Love and Thunder as there are in an Avengers movie. Guardians of the Galaxy’s Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista and Karen Gillan will all perform, as will Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie. Christian Bale makes his MCU debut as the villain Gorr The God Butcher, another character straight out of Jason Aaron’s comics. Thor: Love and Thunder is currently slated to hit theaters on May 6, 2022.
