This photo means a lot to me. And I’ll tell you why. 
Natalie Portman, as we know, was shut out of Marvel. She chose not to sign any new contract not just because of the way her character was treated (though there is that) but because Thor: The Dark World was slated to be the first Marvel movie directed by a woman, her friend (and eventual Wonder Woman director) Patty Jenkins. Portman hadn’t planned on being in The Dark World, but lept at the chance to be a part of feminist history and to be directed in what would have beenJenkin’s first film since her 2003 Oscar-winning Monster. Portman signed a new contract with Marvel. They fired Jenkins soon after. Portman was crushed because she essentially had been duped into a contract for a film that would keep her away from her young son and force her back into a one-dimensional role under yet another male director. And we all remember how awful that movie was. 
When it came time for the third Thor movie, they tried to get Portman under contract again. And she said no. Marvel decided to spin the story to make it seem like it was all their idea. At first, they went for the lame and nonsensical: 
When Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked about why she wouldn’t be in the third film, and said there were “many reasons, many of which are in the film, so you will see that” continuing with “There are only a couple of scenes on Earth in this movie. The majority, 95 percent of the movie, takes place in the cosmos.” (x)
Seeing as The Dark World also took place in space, this answer didn’t have a lot of credibility. When Portman said she was “done” with the Marvel Universe, Feige got vicious in interviews, telling reporters that Valkyrie was in Ragnorak to be better than Jane Foster and a better match for Thor. 
“We wanted Thor to encounter somebody that was near his equal and that his relationship with Jane may have evolved in unexpected ways in between The Dark World and Ragnarok, and we wanted to pit him against a character who was much more his equal and in many ways his superior.” (x)
Feige implies that A) Valkyrie was in Ragnorak just to be a romantic interest for Thor, B) Valkyrie is better and more powerful than Jane Foster, and C) Jane Foster was always Thor’s inferior. 
What’s ridiculous is that Ragnorak had a “sorry Jane dumped you” throwaway line to explain Portman’s absence. And instead of saying that Jane and Thor broke up in interviews, a line that does not spoil literally anything about the film, Feige chose to attack Jane’s strength and capability, which would have been a very special dig at Portman.

So how does he fix this? How does he fix the idea that Jane Foster can’t go to space, or that she’s not powerful enough for Thor, the god of thunder?

André the Giant, Fire, and Head: PRINCESS THE BRIDE TIDBITS HELLO. MY NAME IS INIGO MONTOYA You killed me father Prepare to die The director believes "My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die" is the most-quoted line from any of his movies (the other contenders being, "I'll have what she's having," and "You can't handle the truth!"). Reiner spoke of how Christopher Guest disappears so well into a role that he didn't even remember Guest being in the film. When he saw the actor at the premiere party, Reiner's first thought was of how nice it was of his friend to come out and support him, having forgotten that Guest played a part (Count Rugen aka the Six-fingered Man). Billy Crystal (Miracle Max) came up with many of his own lines, including "Why don't you give me a nice paper cut to pour lemon juice on it," and the "mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich For the opening scene, Goldman originally wanted Jimmy Stewart in the Peter Falk role, but was happy with Falk. If Jewison had made the film, he planned the opening scene with an immigrant carrying a sick child up the stairs of a tenement building. William Goldman, author of the book, said he's not good on sets and related the story of how, even though he wrote the scene in both the book and the script, when he saw Buttercup's dress catch fire, he shrieked, "Her dress is on firel" effectively ruining the scene. Westley's mustache was Cary Elwes' idea, he thought it would give the character swashbuckling flair. During the scene between Westley and the Six-fingered Man, Cary Elwes told Christopher Guest to go on and hit him; Guest clocked him on the head so hard that Elwes had to go to the hospital. The shots of the Cliffs of Insanity are a mix of matte paintings and the actual location: the Cliffs of Moher in County Clare, Ireland. When he wrote the book, Goldman envisioned André the Giant in the role of Fezzik. you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com lolzandtrollz:Something You Probably Didn’t Know About The Princess Bride

 Prepare to die
 The director believes "My name is Inigo Montoya, you killed
 my father, prepare to die" is the most-quoted line from any
 of his movies (the other contenders being, "I'll have what
 she's having," and "You can't handle the truth!").
