Natalie Portman will not star in The Avengers
Thor star Chris Hemsworth indicated at a London press conference over the weekend that Natalie Portman is confirmed for an appearance in The Avengers. However, Natalie Portman herself revealed today that she is not starring in The Avengers, although she is signed on for two sequels to Thor. Here's what she had to say below.

"I'm not in The Avengers, but I'm signed up for the next two (Thor ) sequels if they are made. I think these inter-related Marvel movies are great fun. The Avengers will be like Ocean's Eleven with the superhero all-stars!"

Natalie Portman also revealed that much of the romance between her character, Jane Foster, and Chris Hemsworth's Thor will be dealt with in the sequels.

"There is a love story, but it's very unconsummated. It's like they fall for each other and then they leave room for the sequel. (Laughs)"
