I was really looking forward to having Portman in the role. The movie sounds amazing and it's been a while since she's done anything sci-fi or action.

Interesting to note here: She turned Gravity down due to "scheduling conflicts". She also just backed out of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies due to "scheduling conflicts". However, beyond Thor (which has already wrapped), she has nothing set up that we know about. Could we in fact be seeing her clearing her slate for that Lois Lane role afterall? Just seems weird she's suddenly dropping all these projects for a "scheduling conflict" when there's nothing else she's been tagged to.
