Natalie Portman’s character Jane Foster will not be returning for Thor: Ragnarok. Most of the story takes place in the cosmos and apparently it’s not a place for humans, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
When this news came about it wasn’t like anyone worried about what Portman would do next (she’s already completed four films for 2016/2017 and is currently filming a fifth). It was just a question of what would she want to do?
And it turns out, she does have a place over at HBO, starring in the forthcoming series We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, reports Variety.
Portman takes on the role of college student Rosemary Cooke. Her new dormmates talk about their upbringings and self-described dysfunctional family lives. Rosemary could match their stories but holds back, because she knows it will change the way they look at her.
One thing we can say here about Rosemary’s childhood, without spoiling anything, is her twin sister went missing when they were both five years old. Hence, why she keeps quiet about her troubled past when talking to new people.
But, if you do want to know what is a little different about Rosemary’s missing sister, you can read on here with this review of Karen Joy Fowler‘s novel, which the series is based on, over at The New York Times.
Like the Times points out, the familial revelation is not necessarily a secret, because it’s on the jacket copy and in promotional materials, but this slightly game-changing bit of information doesn’t come up until page 77 in the novel … so, it’s your call (if you want to be surprised).
The series is being produced by Friends co-creator Marta Kauffman and developed with her company Okay Goodnight. Portman is set to star and also executive produce.
The series is in the early stages with a premiere date still to come.
