What If Thor: The Dark World Was a Romantic Comedy?
Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman
Though some fans might prefer otherwise, Natalie Portman is the love interest in Marvel's Thor franchise, and she's back for the latest installment, Thor: The Dark World.

Of course, being a superhero film, Thor: The Dark World will likely focus more on passions of the punch than passions of the heart, which makes it a hard sell for Portman's female fans. How to solve this problem? Jimmy Kimmel has the answer – turn the film into a romantic comedy called Thor Actually.

The parody trailer puts Portman's Jane Foster in the spotlight as a single girl who's "looking for love in all the wrong places." If you thought Bridget Jones' struggles were bad enough, Jane's got to deal with something even worse: the imminent destruction of the Earth. Kind of puts those horrible online dates in perspective, doesn't it?

Watch the trailer below. The real Thor: The Dark World is in theaters now.
