Sorry about the crass and somewhat misleading headline boys and girls but we have to do whatever it takes to sell newspapers around these here parts.

From the official press release:

Marvel Studios announced today that Academy Award® nominated actress Natalie Portman has been cast to star as Jane Foster in the studio’s highly anticipated movie THOR. In the early THOR comics, JANE FOSTER was a nurse who became Thor’s first love. The character will be updated for the feature adaptation. Portman will star opposite Chris Hemsworth who will play Thor and Tom Hiddleston who will play the villain Loki. Kenneth Branagh will direct the film.

Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige will produce THOR. Principal photography for the film is set for early 2010. The film will be released in the US on May 20, 2011 and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

It seems the love that geeks harbor for Natalie Portman may never die.

    Uh, after her abysmal performance in Star Wars I don’t want to see Natalie Portman in any sci fi/fantasy movie. I know people like her in Garden State but her job as Padme was just a waste. Kinda has me not looking forward to Thor now…
