So, it was that during the reshoots of Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman’s Thor: The Dark World, Portman was caught up with her commitments for other projects and was unable to show up for the reshoot of the film’s kiss scene. The actress, while speaking to NY Daily in an interview, revealed that she was already working on a new project while the reshoots were taking place and was unable to appear for the shoot due to her conflicting schedules.

In the same interview, Natalie Portman later revealed that the creators of Thor: The Dark World chose to replace her with Chris Hemsworth’s wife, Elsa Pataky, for the kiss scene. She said: “So they put his (Chris) wife (Elsa) in my wig and costume, that’s why it was so exciting.”

Later, in an interview with W magazine, it was revealed that Chris was the one who made the call to bring his wife to the scene. Hemsworth claimed that since Portman was unavailable, he was asked to choose from a group of girls to kiss and decided to bring his wife, who was present at the location where they were doing the reshoot. The actor said, “He (the director) said, ‘Do you want to pick one? Who do you want to kiss?’” He added: “And I said, ‘My wife is just around the corner, let’s get her in.'”

Now, going back to the present, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Natalie Portman’s Jane are set to return in the fourth Thor movie titled ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’. The film is directed by Taika Waititi and has a US release date of July 8, 2022.
