All this does, IMO, is turn more people off of "Those damn feminists" trying to change everything to be a women's world, or whatever BS teenage boys on the internet want to spew.

And just read the comments: They have multiple source materials to use as a new/reintroduced female character for this series. This is just a stupid PR stunt.
For what it's worth Thor is not actually becoming a woman, the male Thor will be found to be unworthy of Mjolnir, while whoever this woman is gets the hammer. Thor himself will still exist as a character, just not as one of the Avengers.

As a lot of people have pointed out in various comments sections:

TORA: Female style of the Scandinavian Tor, meaning "thunder."

That trailer does look very good. Please don't suck. The trilogy is one of my fondest film childhood memories.

This is true.

And forgive me calling it a reboot, last night. I wrote that right before going to bed, but I know better and realize it's a sequel.

No Mel Gibson cameo? I'm sure Gary Oldman will join me in blaming the Jews who run Hollywood for that.

It'll be interesting to see how the movie turns out since they've been working on it for years with reshoots.
