Thor Is Now A Woman, So Who’s Going to Replace Chris Hemsworth?

July 16, 2014:Now that we know Thor will be a woman, which actress is going to replace Chris Hemsworth in the films?


A lot has changed for superheroes in Hollywood since the turn of the century. They aren’t portrayed as indomitable forces of nature any longer with sky high moral standardsthat can do no wrong.It's totally understandable too, as people today prefer to relate to their idols even if they are fictional.

The media humanizing superheroes is why Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man was such a geek in high school and Christian Bale's Batman behaved more like a savage beast than a lovable savior. Givinga superhero's character a human twist is one thing and changing his gender to cater to the opposite sex is totally another. This is what Marvel Comics have just done.

Knowing that none of their most popular inventions cater to the female superhero enthusiasts of America, Marvel has turned the main character of its famous Thor series into a woman.

Yes, the hammer-wielding god who is played by Chris Hemsworth in the movies has been decommissioned so that a woman can take over.

"This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR,” said writer Jason Aaron. “This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before."

The question now is that if Hollywood still is interested in making movies on Thor, what would it do? Surely, they can't keep on using the outdated Thor who has been replaced by a woman in the actual comic books.

If Marvel Studios decide to do a third Avengers movie, they'll need to update their superhero roster. And if the new Thor is a part of that ensemble case, these Hollywood stars have both the physical assets and personality to play its female version.

Jennifer Lawrence


This makes sense. Just look at her.



She is the "reigning queen of kick-butt" and Thor kicks butt.

Joanie "Chyna" Laurer


Looking for muscular women with a bit of acting experience? Look no further than Chyna. She is a little too old and a lot plastic for this role though.
