Natalie Portman Teases an All-Female Superhero Flick from Marvel


Natalie Portman Thor

Oh, Natalie Portman. Don’t you know it’s never smart to tease the fanboys? While doing some promotional work for the upcoming superhero sequel “Thor: The Dark World,” the actress discussed a few of the projects that are brewing over at Marvel. Although she didn’t drop any specifics, apparently one of the projects will feature a hero without a penis.

Here’s what she told Sci-Fi Now:

There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming — I have heard is coming. And, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters.

She also had some nice things to say about the publisher:

They do definitely have strong female characters in them, and I think it’s a testament to the people who run Marvel — their respect, their just normal human respect for women, the way they want to characterize them. You can tell when men talk to you, as just a person or as a ‘woman.’

Stan Lee, on the other hand, says it could be a while before Marvel tosses out a female superhero flick. The reason: Both guys and gals love the male-dominated movies right now. Since demand isn’t that high, Marvel Studios isn’t in a rush to put anything together.

“The thing is the women like these movies as much as the guys, so we don’t have to knock ourselves to find a female, but we will,” Lee told the folks at Too Fab.

Could a Black Widow, She-Hulk, or Spider-Woman movie be in the works? It’s all speculation at this point. Personally, I’m pulling for the She-Hulk movie.

Natalie Portman hangs out with Chris Hemsworth in “Thor: The Dark World” on November 8.

    She-Hulk all the way!

    It’ll be Ms Marvel and Black Panther most likely.

    She-Hulk would actually be interesting with the whole lawyer thing. I’d really like Ms. marvel or Spider Woman though. Spider Woman you can even weave her being a former HYDRA opperative in there. Only thing is neither has the biggest rogues gallery.
