According to an unnamed source, it may be so.
Is it true? Is Jessica Biel in negotiations to star in Kenneth Branagh’s new movie Thor? According to an unidentified source who spoke with Nuke The Fridge, these negotiations are in the works and Biel will join the cast already consisting of Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Tom Hiddleston, and Brian Blessed. Does adding Biel mean the rumor that Natalie Portman might join is out?
Not necessarily. According to the source Biel will be playing “the same female character from the animated Hulk vs Thor,” of which there were actually two. So Biel could play one, and Portman can play the other.
The first of those was Sif, an Asgardian warrior who would provide a pretty straight up love interest for the be-hammered one. The second was Amora the Enchantress, one of Thor’s ‘villains’. I don’t know about you but I would rather see Portman play the villain since she’s such a great actress and sweet villain, and then leave the love interest/nice girl role for Biel. Again, that is if the rumors are true and both Biel and Portman are in fact part of the film.
What two roles do you think they talking about and who would you like to see play who?
For those curious, here's pics of Lady Sif and The Enchantress.
I hope Kenneth B. and the studio know what they're doing. I've been impressed with the cast so far. Please don't frak it up.
