Would it be pretty cool if Portman goes full Linda Hamilton in T2? yeah of course
Would she still be just as badass if she doesn't? Of course.
Portman has got comedic chops (I mean, that rap video is amazing) and she's just so damn talented. I cannot wait to see her grace the screen as Thor. She's going to look proper badass and she'll just own it.
She commands the screen. Jane has been terribly underwritten in all previous Thor outings but this makes me very excited. I don't get the hate but it's there...
Just to be clear, I am not saying she needs to be muscular for her to be convincing, she'll be fine. I'm just saying it'd be nice if we could have female superheroes in the future that represent a wider variety of body types.
To be blunt, we need a "thicc" superhero. Someone who's fit with a healthy body fat percentage. Even Linda Hamilton, who clearly put in work and developed a good amount of muscle, was obviously still very thin. I would try to get any of them to resemble female MMA fighters like Michelle Waterson. If you want to talk about the "expectations" movies set, currently superhero movies are saying to girls, even if you are fit, you still need to get down to needlessly low body fat percentages like 10% to 15%.
All I'll say is women like Hamilton, Gadot, Larson, etc are probably way healthier than you or I even if their body fat percentage is lower than mine. You need to be healthy to put in 16 hour days on an action movie set.
I do agree that there are many different types of women with different body types that I would love to see in these films but don't put down the actresses we have already.
Also, if more "thicc", as you so beautifully describe it, actresses were in these movies would you be okay with seeing a little FUPA? A little bit of belly? Some back fat? That's what a "thicc" body type entails.
And as someone who actually is in that "thicc" category
You do not want to see my titties slapping around on screen. Let the small titty chicks handle that.
