Natalie Portman reportedly out of Thor: Ragnarok as Creed star Tessa Thompson steps in

April 11th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Jane Foster fans aren’t going to be happy but it seems that Natalie Portman has let the Marvel fold…

Yes, it seems the Creed star Tessa Thompson has been cast as the love interest in 2017’s Thor Ragnarok as “A kind of superhero” and is expected to star in future Marvel movies as well.

Just what that role is, is unknown though we’re thinking she would probably be an Asgaardian.

No word on why Natalie Portman is gone, although nothing official has been announced yet, though we’re hearing from several ounces that the actress is no longer part of the MCU.

That’s a pity as we really liked Portman in the Thor movies.

Let us know your thoughts…

Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi and also stars Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Jamie Alexander, Mark Ruffalo and Lou Ferrigno. It’s scheduled for release November 3, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
