While collaborating with Natalie Portman on “Thor : Love and Thunder”, Taika Waititi asked the actress a somewhat awkward question on “Star Wars”…
Thor Love and Thunder : the return of Jane Foster
After Thor :RagnarokTaika Waititi is back at the helm of new superhero adventures with Thor : Love and Thunder. In this opus, the Asgardian embodied by Chris Hemsworth is in search of serenity after the events ofAvengers :Endgame and the fight against Thanos. His plans are disrupted by Gorr (Christian Bale), an enemy who has sworn to eradicate all deities from the universe.
For this confrontation, the God of Thunder can count on the help of the Guardians of the Galaxy but also of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi) and especially his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), absent since Thor : The world of darkness and now able to wield Mjölnir.
The heroine is therefore making her comeback in this film to be discovered from July 13, 2022 at the cinema. A comeback which also makes it possible to find Natalie Portman in the dark rooms, which she had deserted since 2019 and My life with John F. Donovan.
Taika Waititi’s blunder
During his collaboration with the Oscar-winning actress of black swanTaika Waititi accidentally makes him understand thathe does not master his filmography at his fingertips. The actor and director actually makes a rather surprising request to the former interpreter of Padmé Amidala, as he confided to RollingStone :
Natalie asked me, “What are you going to do next?” And I said, “I’m trying to work on something Star Wars. Have you ever wanted to make a movie Star Wars ?” She replied: “I have already been in films Star Wars“. I had forgotten about those. (Laughs)
The director added about the secret project, which he still isn’t sure if he can make it happen:
I try to write this idea on Star Wars for the moment. I have to see how it goes, because once I propose it, it will determine if it can be done or not.
Taika Waititi should in any case do a proposal quite far from the prelogy of George Lucas…
