Endgame Included Unused Thor 2 Footage

The editors incorporated unused Thor: The Dark World footage and a new voiceover.

Spoiler warning: spoilers for Avengers: Endgame ahead.

While Natalie Portman’s Doctor Jane Foster made a cameo in Avengers: Endgame, the actress didn’t actually shoot any new footage for the appearance.

Reported by Entertainment Weekly, directors Anthony and Joe Russo explained the only new content Portman provided for the film was a quick piece of voiceover work. Anthony said “All she did new for this movie was…”

“The voice,” said Joe.

“A little bit of voice-over when she’s talking in the distance, that’s it,” finished Anthony.

The scene in question takes place on Asgard in 2013 and focuses on Jane in the distance thanking a group of Asgardians for taking care of her, though the newly provided piece of vocal work itself is relatively hard to distinguish, and largely just lends to the overall believability of the scene.

In an interview with Business Insider, Endgame editors Jeffrey Ford and Matthew Schmidt discussed various points of the film, including this sequence involving Jane. Ford said, “The shot of Loki throwing his cup in the cell and Thor and Rocket sneak past him in the background, that’s a piece of digital negative taken from the dailies of The Dark World that we repurposed. The same for the scene of Natalie Portman.”

Exit Theatre Mode

In an August 2016 interview, Portman said she believed she was done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, though she left room for the possibility of her return, saying “I don’t know if, maybe, one day they’ll ask for an Avengers 7 or whatever. I have no idea! But as far as I know I’m done.”
