Ha! Chris Hemsworth Thought Marvel Fired Him as Thor

Could Thor find love on planet Earth? Things were looking up for him and Jane Foster. But Natalie Portman ditched the Marvel franchise, so now what?

We’ve known for a while that Portman’s character would not be appearing in Thor: Ragnarok. But now Marvel is changing its in-movie explanation for the disappearance. At first, they explained Portman’s absence by just saying Thor: Ragnarok wouldn’t be taking place on Earth, where Jane Foster resides.
