Is Marvel Replacing Chris Hemsworth With A Woman In The Next Avengers Movie??

Thor is becoming a woman in the comics! Not with a little nip and tuck and hormone therapy, but because someone new will be picking up the hammer Mjolnir for a while, granting her the power of the thunder god.

And already there is some scuttlebutt that Marvel means to replace Chris Hemsworth with a female star in upcoming Thor and Avengers movies!

Sources cite Chris' difficulties keeping up the diet and training regimen for that amazing superhero body.

Besides, if that's what happens in the comics, it'll eventually happen in the movies BASED ON the comics, right?

Here's the thing though:

Thor has been a woman before!

Both Jane Foster and Tara Olsen have wielded the hammer temporarily, and the man himself was a woman for a bit when Loki transformed him.

Thor has also been a frog. (Loki is HILARIOUS.)

Although we think it's a great story for a woman to swing the big ol' hammer for a bit, comic book characters always seem to revert back to the form that made them famous.

So we're guessing this too is just a temporary thing and highly unlikely to affect the billion dollar movie franchise.

Besides, are we really ready to say goodbye to all this??

The bigger question is, when are we going to get a solo movie of one of Marvel's already existing female heroes?

    Chris said he was contracted for 3 Thor movies and 3 avengers so I doubt he is being replaced.

    I doubt they'll do a solo female film anytime soon and if they do, all it will be is sexist

    The female Thor is for a story arc, is all. This has nothing to do with the films, thankfully. Have no desire to pay good money to see some chick swinging the hammer about. Ridiculous. Sure let Marvel do it, and see how fast the franchise sinks. Hemsworth has made them millions, I really do not think them that bloody stupid.

    Why is it ridiculous? I would like to see more women superheroes because there aren't enough of them. I could see this happening, esp after the fact that Tom Hiddleston (LOKI) stole the whole movies a total of three times!
