January 3, 2011 (Sampurn Wire): Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman, who has recently attracted lots of attention for her wonderful performance in the movie Black Swan, has rubbished the rumors of her being part of the movies like The Dark Knight Rises and The Man of Steel.
Both the films are the sequels of popular Batman and Superman series. The 29 year old actress said that she was not even approached with these films, so these rumors have no base. Expressing her annoyance at these rumors, Natalie said that she has never heard of anything like that.
Zack Snyder is coming up with his next Superman film The Man of Steel, which was supposed to star Portman. But the comment from the actress has cleared the air. Recently on 27th December 2010, the representative of the actress announced that Portman is engaged to Benjamin Millepied, a ballet choreographer with international repute and is expecting a child.
This news of her pregnancy also confirms that the actress cannot be part of the two superhero movies. Her recent performance in Black Swan is expected to get a nod from Oscar. In 2011, Portman will be seen in the films The Other Woman, Your Highness, No Strings Attached and Thor.
If Natalie is not playing the female leads in these two movies then who have been signed to play these roles?
