That Wasn’t Natalie Portman That Hemsworth Kissed At The End Of THOR: THE DARK WORLD
Marvel hit yet another home run this fall with the Thor sequel, The Dark World. Not only was it a success, but it quickly became a new favorite for many of the studio’s fans, myself included. As is Marvel tradition, there were a couple of surprises featured after the film closed. Two of them to be exact. If you haven’t seen the film, then you may consider the rest of the article a bit spoilerish, but it’s nothing too extreme. The first mid-credit scene was quite interesting and gave us a good look at what to expect from Guardians of the Galaxy. The second bit was more of a cute little nod to the relationship of Thor and Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman.
The scene featured Thor being zapped back to Earth after Jane figured he’d disappeared again, leaving her behind as he did at the end of the first film. The two share a nice little smooch on the balcony of an apartment. Here’s the funny thing about that scene: it wasn’t Natalie Portman he was kissing. It was a double in the form of Mrs. Hemsworth, Elsa Pataky.
“It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn’t get there because I was working on my own film. They put his wife [actress Elsa Pataky] in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so passionate.”
Well, isn’t that just sickeningly sweet!? Have to say, though, it seemed to have worked as I couldn’t tell the difference. The scene wasn’t as revealing as the mid-credits scene, but it at least showed that Jane is a part of Thor’s life now and after the end results of the film, he seems to be committed to her. At least for the time being.
With Thor: The Dark World in theaters now, we likely won’t be seeing his character again until the Avengers reteam in 2015 to take on the new robotic threat in Ultron, being portrayed by James Spader. That is, unless he shows up in some random cameo or in a mid-credits scene leading up to the finale of Marvel’s Phase 2 films.
