After returning to the MCU in Thor: Love and Thunder as Jane Foster, Natalie Portman seems to want to come back again.

Warning: Spoilers for Thor: Love and Thunder ahead

Speaking to Total Film, Natalie Portman revealed she hasn't been called about another MCU return. She did call the Love and Thunder experience “super fun,” though, and seems open to coming back.

“I mean, no one's asked me to [return],” Portman revealed. “So I don't know. But sure, that was super fun.

“Yeah, it was so fun. I had such a great time making it,” she continued.

She then praised Taika Waititi, Chris Hemsworth, and Tessa Thompson. “I was just laughing all day, every day. There's only my highest love for that experience — and not to mention Australia, which is just the most glorious country,” she added.

In Love and Thunder, Jane Foster returns and becomes Mighty Thor. Portman's character is reunited with Chris Hemsworth's. However, the reunion is short-lived, as Jane dies from cancer at the end of the movie.

Despite this, the post-credits scene left the door open for another Portman MCU return. In the scene, Jane enters Valhalla and is greeted by Heimdall (Idris Elba). This could potentially explain a potential return if it happens.

Natalie Portman in MCU movies

Natalie Portman began her MCU career when she starred in the 2011 Thor movie. The Oscar-winning actress would reprise the role in The Dark World two years later. However, she would sit out of the third movie, Ragnarok.

While she contributed some voiceover work to go over archival footage in the MCU's Avengers: Endgame, she made her proper return in Love and Thunder. The movie may have had a mixed reaction, but it was a box office hit after making over $760 million at the box office.

Again, the movie ultimately ends with Jane dying in the physical world. Her introduction to Valhalla may open the door for a return if the story calls for it. At least Portman seems happy with the experience nonetheless.

Before her MCU role, Portman gained notoriety for her performance in Léon: The Professional. She was just a teenager at the time but still impressed critics. She would go on to have roles in Heat and Beautiful Girls before starring in Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace.

Her Star Wars tenure would continue until 2005. Portman reprised the role of Padmé Amidala in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith in 2002 and 2005, respectively.

From there, Portman starred in acclaimed movies such as V for Vendetta, Brothers, and Black Swan. For her performance in Black Swan, she won her first Oscar for Best Actress. Portman was previously nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Closer and would later receive another Best Actress nomination for Jackie.

In recent years, Portman has become more selective with her roles. She has starred in Alex Garland's Annihilation, Lucy in the Sky, and May December. Coming up, she will star with Moses Ingram in Apple TV+'s new drama series, Lady in the Lake, based on the novel of the same name.
