Recently, a behind-the-scenes photo of ‘Thor: Love and Thunder‘ showed Natalie Portman with capture points on her arm and she looks a little thinner than in the movie trailers.
Because of this, many fans believe that the muscles of Jane Foster, now Mighty Thor, were made through visual effects.
However, the creative director of Marvel, Kevin Feigedenied the rumor and assured that portman worked out hard to gain the character’s ideal physique.
In an interview for Total Film, Feige said that the only change made to the star’s body was to its stature.
To make her look more menacing, the visual artists left Portman at around 1.80, as she is only 1.60 in real life.
“The only thing we helped was to make Mighty Thor a little taller. That was the only digital magic we used on his body. Everything else was natural to her.”
Previously, portman had already told the portal that he trained a lot to gain muscle and display a physique similar to that of the heroine in the comics.
“I trained for a long time before and during, and I was eating a lot of protein. It really helped prepare me for the level of action we ended up doing. We had amazing stunt doubles that made things really difficult, but I also did a lot of the running and jumping and swords and hammer fighting scenes. It was definitely helpful to gain muscle for this project, it wasn’t just aesthetics. To support the weight of the cape all day, you need to have a strong upper body.”
Remember the image that generated all this repercussion:
Remembering that the film arrives on the day July 7th to national cinemas.
So, are you excited for the premiere?
The film features Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on a journey unlike anything he has ever faced: the quest for self-knowledge. But his retirement is interrupted by a galactic assassin known as Gorr the Butcher of the Gods (Christian Bale), which seeks the extinction of the gods. To combat the threat, Thor enlists the help of the Valkyrie King (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) who, to Thor’s surprise, inexplicably wields his magic hammer, Mjolnir, being the Mighty Thor. Together, they embark on a harrowing cosmic adventure to uncover the mystery of the Butcher of the Gods’ revenge and stop him before it’s too late.
As the film will include the participation of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (waititi) Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), nebula (Karen Gillan), Drax (Dave Bautista), mantis (Pom Klementieff), Rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper) and Groot (voice of Vin Diesel), there are several possibilities for this novel.
The cast is also made up of Jaime Alexander (Lady Sif), Jeff Goldblum (Grand Master), Christian Bale (Gorr, the Butcher of the Gods) and Russell Crowe (Zeus).
Melissa McCarthy will play the “fake version” of Hela in the Asgard theater troupe, alongside Matt Damon, Luke Hemsworth and Sam Neill.
Michael Giacchino (‘Batman’, ‘Ratatouille’) is responsible for the soundtrack.
