Natalie Portman Is Going to “Get Jacked” For Thor: Love & Thunder

By | July 29, 2020

Natalie Portman has opened up about her physical preparation for MCU blockbuster Thor: Love and Thunder.

The Oscar-winning actress will transform into the Mighty Thor for returning director Taika Waititi, following a number of lackluster appearances as the God of Thunder’s romantic interest Jane Foster.

To convincingly wield the mythological weapon Mjolnir, she’ll need to bulk up.

Taking part in a recent Instagram Live chat with tennis superstar Serena Williams, Portman revealed that “[they] haven’t started” production on Love and Thunder due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“More time to get jacked. Which I have not,” she added. “I’ve got the carbo-loading down, but not the exercise part.”

Following the delay in filming, the actress went on to confirm that cameras are scheduled to start finally rolling in Australia early next year.

“Obviously everything is weird because of pandemic time, who knows what’s happening. It will be exciting and I’m interested to see if I can gain muscle.”

Earlier this month, filmmaker Waititi teased how the upcoming movie will be “very romantic”.

“I think it’s going to be really good. We’ve been writing the script off and on for over a year and I’m just, actually this week, doing another pass on it,” he mentioned.

“It is so insane and it’s also very romantic. I’m into romances now. I want to make romance. I want to make something that I’ve never done or never cared for. I would like to attack something like that. “
