Jamie Alexander might reprise her role as Lady Sif.

Natalie Portman will not be reprising the role of Jane Foster for the third installment. Executive producer of Thor: Ragnarok and president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige has said that there are “many reasons” why Jane will not be returning.

“Many of [those reasons] are in the film so you will see that. There are only a couple of scenes on Earth in this movie; 80 to 90 percent takes place in the cosmos.” said Feige.

Stellan Skarsgard, who played Dr. Eric Selvig in the previous Thor movies, as well as in both Avengers movies will also not be making an appearance.

Thor: Ragnarok is directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and is scheduled for release on November 3, 2017.
