Wow! How do they fool us this much? A secret has just surfaced online about Marvel’s Thor: Dark World. The movie which was released in theatres in 2013 and was the 8th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), stared Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, and many others.
Although the story is centered around titular hero and Asgardian Prince, Thor, saving the 9 realms alongside his adopted brother (Loki), every moment he (Thor) spent with his love interest, D Jane Foster of Earth, certainly caught the attention and passion of every viewer.
But how is it that it is after about 8 years that we finally learn that Chris wasn’t actually kissing his costar, Natalie Portman, in the much raved about passionate post credit kissing scene in the movie?
I know, I know. If you are a crazy MCU fanatic like me, you’d probably be looking to rewatch the scene right now. Especially because you’re in doubt of how oblivious you’ve been for close to 8 years. Don’t be ashamed. I did, I think you should too.
I mean, that scene had Senator Amidala and Anakin Skywalker written all over it. Maybe even Mr and Mrs Smith and we didn’t realize it was borne out of pure and passionate romance. Wow! You outplayed yourselves, Chris and Elsa.
Well, Portman, herself, revealed on E!’s Daily Pop Show that she was unavailable for the re-shoot of the scene and that it was actually Chris’ wife, Elsa Pataky who stood in for her.
For all the digging, onion finding, and fan theories we’ve been conjuring, this one was sitting right there in front of us, and we didn’t even see it. Wonders!
