If you thought the cast for Marvel’s upcoming movie Thor had already approached its actor quota, you were wrong. Over at MTV co-star Natalie Portman revealed that Kat Dennings from Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist will also star in the film, but the biggest question is as who?
Portman was interviewed by the site and spoke about her role as Jane Foster and somehow slipped up about Kat Dennings involvement.
“Well I’m really excited,” Portman told MTV News. “Kat Dennings is going to be in it with me and she’s a good friend and an amazing actress, so I’m looking forward to that.”
There aren’t that many female characters in the Thor universe so the possibilities aren’t endless to who Dennings could play. The primary female roles are already taken with Portman and Jaimie Alexander as Sif. Both women play important parts in Thor’s life, so Dennings must be on board as a supporting or female villain of some sort.
Out of the few female characters left from the comic, Dennings could play Enchantress or Valkyrie. Enchantress seems more likely because Valkyrie is literally the female version of Thor. We’ll find out who’s playing who when the film starts production early next year.
Thor hits theaters on May 20, 2011.
