Thor: Love and Thunder Will Show Off Natalie Portman’s Goofy Humor

Thor: Love and Thunder will put Natalie Portman’s goofy humor on display. The fourth
Thor film of the MCU will see the return of Portman’s astrophysicist and former
Thor love interest, Dr. Jane Foster. Although she appeared via archive footage in
Avengers: Endgame, Portman has not starred in any MCU film since 2013’s
Thor: The Dark World. In the upcoming superhero film, Portman is set to wield Thor’s former enchanted weapon, Mjolnir, and take the mantle of the Mighty Thor.,Portman began her theatrical acting career as a child at the age of 12 in the film
Léon: The Professional as an orphaned child who is set out for revenge with the help of a hitman. This began a successful career as a dramatic actor in Hollywood. With films like
Where the Heart Is,
Cold Mountain,
Black Swan, and
Jackie, Portman established herself as one of the industry’s leading dramatic actors. She has only starred in very few films that have allowed her to show off her comedic range such as the
fantasy-comedy Your Highness and the sex-romp
No Strings
Unfortunately, both of which were very poorly received by critics and audiences.,Related: Thor 4: Everything Revealed About Natalie Portman’s Love & Thunder Role,In an interview with
Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi explained that his upcoming film will showcase Portman’s humorous side. Waititi shared that the actor has a naturally goofy sense of humor that has rarely made itself to the big screen. Read what the director had to say below.,Waititi is well-known for his eccentric comedy in his films. The New Zealand filmmaker made a name for himself with the vampire horror comedy
What We Do in the Shadows and the Sam Neill and Julian Dennison adventure
Hunt of the Wilderpeople. Waititi joined the
MCU with 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok and managed to inject a healthy dose of comedy into the franchise. The director allowed series lead Chris Hemsworth to expand his range and embrace the humor of the character. It would seem that Waititi has set out to do the very same with Portman.,Hemsworth’s successful turn to comedy in
Thor: Ragnarok was one of the many achievements critics singled out in the film. Tom Hiddleston, who played Loki and Tessa Thompson, who played Valkyrie, two actors well-known for their dramatic work, were also praised for their comedic performances in the movie. The highly-anticipated and long-awaited 
Thor: Love and Thunder places Portman in a leading role, giving Waititi an opportunity to help the beefed-up actor flex her comedy muscles. Only time will tell on how well Portman succeeds handling more humor, but under Waititi’s guidance, it should lead to hilarious results.,Next: How Natalie Portman Got So Buff For Thor: Love & Thunder,Source:
