Portman Leaks that Kat Dennings is Also in the Cast of Thor
This is some odd casting. MTV reports that actress Kat Dennings has also joined the cast of Kenneth Branagh's Thor movie, which starts shooting in January. But where did they get this scoop? From co-star Natalie Portman. During their interview with Portman, she revealed: "Well I'm really excited…Kat Dennings is going to be in it with me and she's a good friend and an amazing actress, so I'm looking forward to that." But what role will she play? No one knows, and everyone's guessing, but it's hard to tell. Dennings is the latest to join the already very packed cast of stars in the Marvel adaptation, including Jaimie Alexander.
Portman is already set to play Jane Foster, the nurse that Thor falls in love with when he's on Earth. And Alexander is already set to play Sif, a goddess in Asgard who is Thor's lover there. So Dennings won't play either of those roles. Maybe she's be another nurse or friend or someone that Thor comes across on Earth? Could be as simple as that. Or if you're looking for some bigger theories, head over to SlashFilm. As for Portman, well, she seems enthusiastic. "Well, I was really excited when they told me Kenneth Branagh is directing it because it seemed like such a smart choice but such an unexpected choice, that it was like 'This is really weird. I have to try this.'" Indeed it is, and with Dennings on-board, damn am I get excited, too!
