“[Thor 2 will] primarily be the journey of that character, of he and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and how the new dynamic with his father is working out, as well as what are the broader stakes for The Nine Worlds.” So says Kevin Feige.
This clearly states we’ll have a romantic track stuffed in 114 minutes … this really pisses me off. WHY DO WE NEED A ROMANTIC TRACK IN A SUPERHERO MOVIE WITH TWO GREAT VILLIANS?? I feel nothing for jane foster. NOTHING!!!
Yeeeaaaahhh, I really don’t care about Jane Foster. As much as I’m in love with Natalie Portman, I just don’t feel anything for her character. I’d much rather explore the brother dynamic, it’s a much more interesting and compelling topic. Meh, guess I’ll just see how this plays out. Not gonna get too worked up yet.
one of my close friends is a big comic buff, and she said jane foster’s background and character are a lot more interesting in the comics than that little role in the Thor movie. on the one hand, i’m looking forward to them giving her another crack with a new movie, perhaps they can bring her into her own. on the other, if they’re just gonna tack her on as a love interest then they’re really just hurting their own movie with some romantic sideplot. i guess we wait and see.
edited to add: i want to like jane foster the way i like pepper potts—completely effortlessly because she’s so genuine.
