When Taika Waititi proposed the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, put his condition.
As we have seen in the trailers of Thor: Love and Thunderreturn Natalie Portman What Jane Foster after his absence in Thor: Ragnarök (2017). But best of all, he will get the power of the God of Thunder of Marvel. What causes us to see the actress much larger. To get it, she has been a mixture of physical training and film tricks.
In a recent interview the head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feigrevealed the change they needed for the character:
“The only thing we helped with was making Mighty Thor a little taller. That was the only movie magic we used. Everything else was all hers.”
own Natalie Portman explained: “Marvel wanted it to look bigger. I trained for a long time before and during, and was doing the whole protein shake thing. It really helped prepare me for the level of action we ended up doing.”
“We had amazing stuntmen that made things really difficult, but there’s still a lot of running and jumping and sword and hammer fighting. It definitely helped to be strong. Having that layer weight all day, you want to have some upper body strength.”
“They asked me to be as big as possible.” Since he had to appear to be 1.85 meters tall, they used a fairly simple cinematographic trick for that:
“We’d rehearse the scene, they’d see the path and then they’d build a path that was like a foot off the ground or whatever, and I’d just walk on it.” Natalie Portman revealed.
Thor: Love and Thunder will be released on July 8, 2022. While the rest of the installments of Marvel can be seen in the Disney Plus streaming platform.
