Nat For The Avengers?

There is news doing the rounds that Natalie’s Jane Foster will be in upcoming The Avengers film. Chris Hemsworth was interviewed by Italy’s Bad Taste site, and seemed to indicate that she would be joining him on the film.

And where do we stand with the Avengers?

Hemsworth: “I’m going to get the final script, while I have read many drafts. We start shooting in May.”

There will also be Natalie Portman?

Hemsworth: “Yes, Natalie will be there also.”

I’d love to see Natalie work with Joss Whedon, who is directing the film, but I really do believe that there isn’t any truth to this. Why?

1) Natalie has said she wouldn’t be in The Avengers.
2) It starts shooting in May and Natalie is a) pregnant and b) on an extended break.
3) News that breaks via a translation is usually incorrect.
4) I asked a source if they could confirm and they said “there’s nothing to confirm”.
