Joss Whedon, Lexi Alexander And More Weigh In On The Big Thor News From Marvel image
Marvel made an unexpected move today by announcing the mantle (and Mjolnir) of Thor will be handed over to a woman. Though this is a measure only being taken in Marvel comics (for now), the internet has exploded with reactions, both positive and negative. Here at Cinema Blend, we're positively thrilled about the news. For one thing, it's a smart way for Marvel to keep expanding their brand. For another, it's a new path to creating compelling stories. And also, it's about time Marvel gave their heroines more spotlight.

We're far from the only ones rejoicing about this new Thor. Twitter is positively blowing up with responses, and we've picked out some of our favorites below:


The woman Thor news is even already inspiring some filmmakers. For example, Punisher: War Zone helmer Lexi Alexander is delighting herself by dream casting a possible Marvel movie about this female Thor.


Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon has some casting thoughts as well:



Josh Gad, who played Olaf in the progressive Disney princess movie Frozen, has some thoughts on how this news will impact the youth.


To be fair, some little girls have been dreaming that dream for decades now.
