Deleted Thor Scene Shows Natalie Portman Sending Asgard A Signal
At the end of Thor, our favorite Asgardian (Chris Hemsworth) was left wondering about Jane (Natalie Portman), whom he couldn’t visit because the rainbow bridge that allowed him to travel between worlds had been decimated. Jane herself allegedly tried to contact Thor from Earth, as is laid out on this suddenly unburied clip from 2011.
The good folks at Marvel have decided to include this previously hidden scene as part of the massive Marvel’s Cinematic Universe: Phase One collection that will be in stores next April. In addition to all of the origin stories (and The Avengers), the set will include several teasers to movies that are going to be part of Phase Two, including sequels in the Iron Man, Captain America and Thor franchises. Before we look too far ahead, let’s take another look back at a scene that could have popped up at the end of Kenneth Branagh’s Thor, but didn’t:
That was nice of Jane to send Thor a homing beacon to find his way back to Earth. And it worked … sort of. The hero appears in New York City for the climactic Avengers battle. Yet, he doesn’t stay long enough to visit Jane. We've been told that our hero will have to deal with the repercussions of returning to Earth without paying Jane a visit. Asgard hath no fury like a scientist scorned, it appears. But there’s time for that to come. Be sure to watch the clip above, and order the Marvel collection where the clip can be found so that you’ll have it in hand in April.
