This Popular Male SUPERHERO Is Now a WOMAN! [PHOTO]




Marvel Comics has shocked the world by turning Thor – the God of Thunder and one of the oldest superheroes in the Marvel universe – into a woman.

In the comic books, the original – male – Thor will be judged unworthy to hold the hammer. He’ll give it up … and a woman will step in.

One of the writers, Jason Aaron, assured fans that the character will be tough, saying, “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”

This doesn't necessarily mean the "Thor" or "Avengers" MOVIES are changing though.  CHRIS HEMSWORTH has played him in all of those so far, and he's in "Avengers: Age of Ultron", which doesn't come out until next summer.

There's also a third "Thor" film in the works, but there aren't many details about the script yet.  So it's possible they'll incorporate the new female Thor into that plot.
