in a new way meeting with empire magazinethe director quipped about how Portman would present the Mighty Thor mantle a different — and expanded — version of her than what fans saw in the first two Thor films.
“You don’t want Natalie to go back and play the same character who’s walking around with science gear,” he explained. “You know, while Thor was flying around, she stayed on the ground, tapping her foot, ‘When is he coming back?'” “It’s boring. You want her to be part of the adventure.”
Thanks in part to Waititi’s hilarious style, Portman will be showing off some of her comedy clips. “Natalie is really funny in real life. She’s kind of goofy and has a great sense of humor, and I don’t think that was exploited enough in the early films.”
Waititi also spoke briefly about how, after about eight years of separation, seeing Jane again would be “disturbing” for Thor. “You lived a whole other life, and then the love of your life came back on the scene and is now dressed like you,” the director said.
As for the decision to bring Foster back into the franchise as Mighty Thor after Portman left the next Thor: The Dark WorldThe love and thunder Helmet – Who was he Reading Running While Filming ox: Ragnarokaccording to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige – said it was an unexpected move.
“I didn’t know we were going to use the Mighty Thor character’s story until we started crafting the actual story,” he told the magazine. “I was writing and it was like, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool to bring Jane back into the story? “
