The good guys (and gals) of the Marvel Cinematic Universe just can't win in love.
Natalie Portman, who played the brilliant physicist Jane Foster (and love interest to Chris Hemsworth's Thor) in two films, made headlines this week by saying she is done with the MCU, as far as she knows.
In (2011), the two spent just a weekend together, during half of which she suspected Thor had mental health issues before realizing he was an alien with a justifiable god complex.
She received a perfunctory mention in (2015), where Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Thor playfully argued over whose girlfriend was superior.
It's not a total surprise — the Oscar-winning actress isn't among the cast for the upcoming , would have broken ground as the first woman to direct a Marvel movie, and Portman had lobbied Marvel to hire the director.
