Natalie Portman Talking About Thor on Ellen DeGeneres Video

Ellen DeGeneres Revealed a Totally Legit, Very Real Look at Natalie Portman's Lady Thor

Natalie Portman is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the first onscreen female Thor, and on Friday, Ellen DeGeneres offered fans an exclusive, totally legit, very convincing look at her character. The blond hair! The beard! The giant biceps! Portman clearly has a major transformation on her hands. While sitting down with DeGeneres, the 38-year-old joked about having to get fit for the upcoming film. "Yes, I'm very excited. I'm assuming I'll have to work out, but I'm just going to wait . . . I'll be eating my burritos until they call me to the gym," she said.

The news of Portman's casting was announced during San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, when Marvel President Kevin Feige took the stage to discuss the fourth film in the Thor franchise, which will be helmed by Ragnarok director Taika Waititi and is officially called Thor: Love and Thunder. Portman hasn't reprised her role as scientist Jane Foster since Thor: The Dark World ⁠— not counting her all-too-brief cameo in Avengers: Endgame, of course ⁠— but it seems like she's more than ready to step back into the MCU as the Mighty Thor.

Thor: Love and Thunder will arrive in theatres on Nov. 5, 2021, which gives us plenty of time to dwell on what the plot might entail and Portman hopefully enough time to both bulk up on burritos and grow a goatee.
