    Awesome! She was amazing in Creed. Though..I do think it’s weird that they announced she’s going to be the love interest. I assumed Jane Foster is what Marry Jane is to Peter Parker, or what Louis Lane is to Kent Clark. Odd… Though still not complaining since Jane Foster is dull as hell.

  • Delores. Pauldo

    No. She is doing another movie soon. Will miss her in it.

  • Delores. Pauldo

    Natalie has another project she will be in. Kind are mixed about seeing this one. But Natalie didn’t say she wasn’t going to do it. She was pleased to do the third one. Think I will pass on this one.

    yeah but Jaimie is in the movie already,

  • Angelina Farmer

    Wait, what the hell happened to Jane?

  • hoppytoad79

    Why does Thor need a love interest? Who cares about that? Waste of screen time. If he is going to have one, though, I think it’s absolutely awesome she’s a PoC. Anyone who has a problem with that is a racist.
