Is 'Thor: Ragnarok' Being Reshot to Include Natalie Portman?

By Manthan / 2017.05.13

Last year, just before filming kicked off on “Thor: Ragnarok,” it was confirmed that Natalie Portman, who played the role of Thor’s love interest Jane Foster in the first two “Thor” films, will not reprise her role in the upcoming threequel. Now, director Taika Waititi has dropped a major hint to suggest that she might be returning after all.

In August, when she was asked about her appearance in “Thor: Ragnarok,” this is what she had to say

“As far as I know, I’m done,” she told the Wall Street Journal. “I mean, I don’t know if maybe one day they’ll ask for an ‘Avengers 7,’ or whatever,” she continued, before adding that “Thor” was a great thing to be a part of.”

Portman’s interview didn’t come as a surprise as Marvel president Kevin Feige had already revealed earlier last year that Jane Foster would not be a part of the upcoming sequel because a majority of the film takes place either in Asgard or on the planet of Sakaar.

Now, Waititi shared a cryptic tweet over the weekend to hint that she might have a role in the upcoming film.

The director’s Twitter post included a side-by-side image of the actress, which shows the young actress in a still from the 1994 film, “Leon: The Professional,” on one side and another photo from the 2000 drama, “Where The Heart is” on the other. The filmmaker captioned the photo with the words, “Heed the signs,” and “#Ragnarok.”

This comes a week after Mark Ruffalo shared a new image of himself wearing the motion capture mask for his role as The Incredible Hulk with the misspelled hashtag “ragnorok.”

While filming for “Avengers: Infinity War” is currently underway, the fact that Ruffalo included the “ragnorok” hashtag in his post, could indicate that “Thor: Ragnarok” is being reshot and if that’s the case, it is quite possible that Portman could be filming scenes for a brief cameo or a small role in the film
