Can't wait for the new male Wonder Woman , that movie will be deep and meaningful.
Hollywood has been dying for a while , this reversing of roles is just a desperate but feeble attempt to stem the decline and breath new life into a hopelessly lost industry.

Jesus christ you people piss and moan about everything!
Read the story from the comic as to why she becomes a female Thor, it's pretty damn good!
Don't like it, don't watch it, simple as that!
...Or stay rolled up in your little blanky and cry!

I really think some of the people who complain about this kind of stuff are not the same people who know about the source material. I think we see this in quit a lot of Fandoms where you have a group of fans who might watch the movies, might even have picked up a comic book or two in their time then you have this other group who consume all or most of the media. Star Wars, you get the fans who complain about things then you get the fans who read all of it and look for answers in it, in fact years ago Marvel used to have a section where they would offer up awards to fans for doing just this. Harry Potter its the same, some fans who watch the movies others who read the books 12 times over, go to the play, visit the attractions and so on.
I think this is another good example of this, Thor has been a Lady since 2014/5, from the All-New-All-Different-Marvel where Wolverine is the female X-23, Captain America is a black guy, we have Spider-Woman and a whole load of other mash ups. The comics do this all the time, and have been doing it for years where they switch up their characters. The writers literally just say, what if we make Hulk a woman...SHE HULK!!!! It's just part of how comics are and the movies are reflecting the source material.
Asgauridans of the Galaxy! bring it on.
Thor Love and Thunder directed by Taika Waititi mixing it up with Jane Foster as Thor that, I like the sound of. We last saw Thor as a fat guy riddled with anxiety, and it worked so if they want to mess around a bit and give Jane Foster the hammer then am open to that lets see how it works out. With the team behind it am confident that they will do a good job and am not going to start hating on it because of politics.
My only wish is that they keep Korg in this movie.
My issue with female Thor, and this extends to the comics, is that it's absurd. Thor is a name, not an effing title. Wielding the hammer does not make one Thor.

This has to stop ! American and Western Europe are dens of feminism !
Wow... I'm seeing a pattern emerge here. Someone really has a problem with strong and powerful women. Especially those with blades.
Not even an effort to come up with a pseudo-intellectual reason why Thor cannot or should not be female. I could make a better argument! She can apparently wield the sword just fine.... so this is just "woman bad!"
But apparently someone decided that a female Thor will sell tickets at the box office. That's the bottom line.
Thor is the name little baby Thor was given by his momma and papa when he was born wiggling and squirming. God of Thunder is his title.
3) one of the worst received and abysmal selling storylines in recent times does not lead one to believe that it will be a good and profitable move for the movies. This is pure 100% identity politics.
