Earlier this week Marvel announced that Thor would be changed into a female character with a new series this Fall. Marvel wasn't done. Last night it was announced that Steve Rogers would be passing on the shield, but not to the Winter Soldier. Taking over for Rogers as Captain America will be Sam Wilson aka The Falcon.
And the changes don't stop there. Marvel also announced via EW that the Avengers would be revamped as well, to include the new Cap, new Thor, Iron Man with a new suit to match his new life in San Francisco (and new series titled Superior Iron Man.) The team will also include Medusa, Scarlet Witch, Winter Soldier, Angela, Doctor Strange, Ant-Man, Deathlok and Inferno. The new book will be titled, "Avengers NOW!" and will be available this fall.
What do you guys think of all these changes? Is this all just a big PR stunt or are these changes here to stay? Will we see these changes effect the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
