Natalie Portman has been making headlines lately for a new film that she is in with Johnny Depp's daughter, Lily Rose. That film is called Planetarium and is actually a French film. Natalie Portman and her husband live in France, and this is not her first French film.

That film is set in the 1930sm and is directed by French director Rebecca Zlotowski.

But Natalie Portman is quietly rumored to be looking down the barrel -- or hammer handle -- of another possible role in the future.

What Marvel announced back in October that it was rolling out a female Thor, fans lit up. It has been eight issues now, and fans were not disappointed.

And now the big secret is out that the female Thor is none other than Jane Foster.

“I mean, it was never just about the surprise or the mystery. Clearly I’ve had fun playing with that part of it over the course of these eight issues [since we introduced the new Thor]. But that’s really all just setup for the real story. And Jane was the one I had a story with, whose story I wanted to tell,” writer Jason Aaron told Vulture. “She’s grown and changed and evolved a lot over the years, become a doctor in her own right. So this to me is not just the next step for her character, but really the next evolution of the core promise that has always been at the heart of Thor’s mythology.”

And, in case you haven't put two and two together on this, Jane Foster is the character played by Natalie Portman in the currently running Marvel series of films.

Does that mean that Natalie Portman might be suiting up and swinging a hammer sometime soon? Time will tell.
