Natalie Portman Seems to Reveal Major 'Thor 4' Plot Point

Natalie Portman may have just revealed a big plot point for Thor: Love and Thunder aka Thor 4!

In an interview with Yahoo, Natalie was asked about the upcoming Marvel movie, where she will be playing the female Thor.

Natalie said, “I can’t tell you that much. I’m really excited. I’m starting to train, to get muscles. If there can be all these female superheroes, the more of them they are, the better it is. I’m trying to think — it’s based on the graphic novel of the Mighty Thor. She’s going through cancer treatment and is a superhero on the side.”

Well, director Taika Waititi actually revealed last year that he wasn’t sure if the cancer plotline would be included or not.

“There’s nothing funnier than cancer,” Taika told ComingSoon.net. “Even now I’m not sure if we’re going to continue with that storyline. I really like it. The way the stories develop at Marvel is ever-changing. We know we’ve got Jane Foster, and that’s cool as it is. I personally like the storyline where she’s fighting this illness and the whole thing with her choosing between fighting that and becoming a god. That’s cool, but it always changes. Between now and when we shoot it’s gonna change. As it did with ‘Ragnarok’! We kept changing it while we were shooting. (laughs) ‘Let’s reshoot this thing because now guess what the villain wants?’ But I did love that storyline.”
