The actress has been bulking up since 2020 and the result is pretty impressive.
Fans are in awe after seeing Natalie Portman’s amazing transformation for the upcoming film 'Thor: Love and Thunder.
.''Thor Love and Thunder' will feature the first female Thor in the form of Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman. It will release in theaters on May 6, 2022.
A fan account has shared photos of the actress on the set looking jacked and powerful as she takes over the Mjollnir to become the female Thor.
Natalie has previously revealed that she had been training hard to develop the muscles, and fans are impressed by the results.
Just to give you a good comparison, here's a side-by-side photo of the actress when she starred in Black Swan vs. her current physique for Thor 4.
Fans can't help but express their amazement at the actress's transformation.
One fan commented: "Oh, my goddess of Thunder. Look at those biceps."
While others jokingly said, "Wouldn't want to challenge her to arm wrestling."
Back in October 2020, Portman revealed to Yahoo that she has already started to train for the role.
"I’m really excited. I’m starting to train to get muscles. If there can be all these female superheroes, the more of them they are, the better it is."
In the same month, Natalie appeared in Watch What Happens Live, where she shared the struggle she had to go through to grow the muscles.
"I’m in so much pain. I’m not good at this. I am an almost-40-year-old mother-of-two. It is a different scenario to try and get jacked. I can’t get up, I can’t sit down. It’s a situation… It’s not happening. I’m like, ‘When do they (muscles) come in?"
Now that's some real dedication!
Thor Love and Thunder' will be based on the Marvel Comics series 'The Mighty Thor' by Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman. It will see Jane going through cancer treatment while playing a superhero on the side.
Aside from breathtaking action scenes, Director Taika Waititi reveals that the Thor 4 will also be "very romantic.
."It is so insane, and it's also very romantic. I'm into romances now. I want to make romance. I want to make something that I've never done or never cared for. I would like to attack something like that," director Waititi said.
Starring alongside Natalie Portman is Chris Hemsworth, who will be reprising his role as Thor, together with Jaimie Alexander reprising her role as Lady Sif. Tessa Thompson is also coming back as Valkyrie, the first openly LGBTQ+ superhero.
