Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has confirmed that actress Natalie Portman is sitting out “Thor: Ragnarok”, telling Empire this week: “I can confirm that, yes.”
Asked to explain why, Feige says: “Many reasons, many of which are in the film so you will see that. There are only a couple of scenes on Earth in this movie. 80-90% takes place in the cosmos.”
He also says we’ll be going far beyond just the nine realms – “Tonally and geographically there are a lot of different planets outside of the nine realms that we visit in Thor: Ragnarok.”
“Thor: Ragnarok” is set for release November 3rd 2017.
