Natalie Portman is the latest person to be cast in Marvel’s upcoming Thor movie.

Portman has become the go to girl for fantasy and graphic novels movies after playing Padme in the Star Wars prequels and Evey Hammond in V For Vendetta.

This will be her first actual comic book movie and she’ll be playing Thor’s first love; Nurse Jane Foster.

For people that aren’t fans of Thor, he was an arrogant warrior who, after starting a war, is banished to Earth to live amongst humans.

Word has it that Portman is bumping Jessica Biel out of the role, which we doubt anyone will really complain about given Portman’s acting chops in comparison to Biel’s…um…smile?

The cast isn’t fully completed but Aussie star, Chris Hemsworth, last seen in the latest Star Trek, and big mouth Brit, Brian Blessed, have been cast as father and son, Thor and Odin.

Samuel L. Jackson is also rumoured to be making an appearance as Nick Fury after he signed a 9 picture deal with Marvel Studios.
