Getting into superhero shape

After a long wait, The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in full swing. Both Black Widow and Shang-Chi have arrived in theaters, and there are a number of highly anticipated projects coming down the line. This definitely includes Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, which will see the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. And Portman recently revealed how she got into superhero shape opposite Chris Hemsworth.

While Natalie Portman starred in the first two Thor movies, she was noticeably absent from Phase Three of the MCU. But that’ll change with Love and Thunder, especially because Jane will transform into Mighty Thor throughout the course of its mysterious runtime. The Oscar-winning actress got ripped as a result, recently speaking about this process:

“It was really fun. I worked with a trainer, Naomi Pendergast, for, I think it was, four months before shooting, and then obviously all the way through filming. We did a lot of weight training and a lot of protein shakes—heavyweight training that I haven’t ever done before. Of course, I’ve never really aimed to get bulky. It was very physical, so it was a lot of both agility work and also strength work.”

Well, there you have it. It looks like Natalie Portman logged the hours to get jacked ahead of Thor: Love and Thunder. And those efforts seem to have worked out, as set photos revealing her giant arms quickly broke the internet. We’ll just have to wait and see how Jane gets in on the Marvel action in the upcoming blockbuster.
