Natalie Portman Responds to Marvel Criticism By Martin Scorsese & Francis Ford Coppola

Natalie Portman is responding to the criticism of Marvel movies from directors Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola. Francis is the latest to criticize the films and he called them “despicable.”

“I think there’s room for all types of cinema. There’s not one way to make art,” Natalie told THR. “I think that Marvel films are so popular because they’re really entertaining and people desire entertainment when they have their special time after work, after dealing with their hardships in real life.”

Many other celebrities have slammed the Marvel franchise films over the years – including some current and former Marvel stars.

Natalie is going to star in Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder, as Jane Foster / Thor, which will hit theaters in 2021.

Natalie Portman's 'Thor' Character May Battle Breast Cancer

Natalie Portman‘s Thor 4 character may be facing two battles.

The upcoming film’s director Taika Waititi shared his thoughts on Jane Foster fighting breast cancer as she did in the comic books.

“I think that’s a really powerful part of the books. I think it’s really cool that she’s fighting this thing and there’s two battles going on. Personally I really love that storyline. But whether it ends up in the film is yet to be seen,” Taika told Variety.

In the comic books, Thor becomes unworthy to wield his magical hammer and his former love interest Jane picks up Mjolnir and calls herself the Mighty Thor. Meanwhile, Jane is also diagnosed and treated for breast cancer.

The film is expected to begin shooting early next year.

Thor: Love and Thunder is set to be released on November 5, 2021.
