Someone summoned Joss on Twitter and wished for more Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Then this happened!
In an announcement this morning on The View, Marvel revealed that the character of Thor — the thunder god of Norse mythology made famous through decades of comics and most recently in the movies starring Chris Hemsworth — will become a woman.
"Thor, the God of Thunder, he messed up, and he’s no longer worthy to hold that damn hammer of his. For the first time in history, that hammer is being held by a woman," said host Whoopi Goldberg.
But it’s not the first time Thor has changed forms.
Wait hold the phone:
not only do we get Thor as a woman but we’re getting black Cap as main Cap (and from all indication’s we’re specifically getting either Eli Bradley or Sam Wilson as the new Cap)?
Wait this was announced by Whoopi Goldberg on The View? Are there a lot of comic readers who watch The View?
"We were twenty-five and twenty-eight, but we acted like fifteen year olds. Fighting over little things, storming off, breaking up for a week and then getting back together. But developmentally, we were fifteen year olds. We’d been in the closet our whole lives, so we didn’t have any practice with relationships. He still hadn’t come out to his family and a lot of his friends. We were on one of our ‘little breaks’ when he died suddenly from a seizure. And nobody in his family or circle knew I existed. It took me four months to find out that he died. I thought he’d just decided never to talk to me again. His family never found out about me. Or him, for that matter."
