Again, which of us, as little geeks, thought this would happen? All this superhero movie madness?
And who could have imagined it would be so much fun?
Entertainment Weekly – which I haven’t seen yet – has a big preview of next May’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Marvel announces that, in the comics, Thor will soon be a female who takes the Thunder God’s mighty hammer when the original Odinson is sidelined.
Marvel announces a new Captain America – most likely Sam Wilson, Cap’s longtime partner as the Falcon – will take over for Steve Rogers, also in the comics.
You know, this isn’t entirely new. Thor has been replaced before – once, notably, by a giant frog – and so has Cap (so many times I couldn’t begin to count, but most notably by Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier).
But it’s all fun and fair and will juice up publicity leading up to the “Ultron” movie next May.
So to reiterate: Hell to the yes.
