Thor: The Dark World’s Natalie Portman says female superhero film is coming
She returns to cinemas as Jane Foster in the October release of Alan Taylor's Thor: The Dark World, and Natalie Portman has said that a female-led superhero film "is coming".
Speaking to SciFiNow, the Oscar winning actress said "There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming - I have heard is coming - and, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters.
But they do definitely have strong female characters in them and I think it's a testament to the people who run Marvel, their respect, their just normal human respect for women, the way they want to characterise them.
You can tell when men talk to you, as just a person or as a 'woman'."
Battlestar Galactica and Riddick star Katee Sackhofff has been rumoured to be taking on the role of Captain Marvel/Ms Marvel whilst other actresses including Gina Torres and Alexandra Daddario have voiced a desire to play Wonder Woman.
