Fact From the Vapor of Nuance
With the news that Hugo Weaving
isn't particularly attached to his role as Red Skull, or superhero movies in general, and is not angling to get let back into the Captain America
franchise, comes an offhand reference by TGDaily that Natalie Portman
was recently 'forced' to adhere to her multi-movie contract as the titular god's love interest for Thor 2
. It's a bit of a flimsy piece of evidence of strain between the actor and the movie studio, but it wouldn't surprise me in the least.
It's been almost a year since we visited this story, but Portman was known to not really be enthusiastic about filming Thor 2
, and especially not after the studio fired her recommended choice for director, Patty Jenkins
, who would have been the first woman to direct a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
