The new Thor and Captain America as well...
Entertainment Weekly reports that Marvel has released a photo which shows the new Avengers team that will be featured in Avengers NOW! which will feature a female Thor, Sam Wilson (the Falcon) as Captain America, Iron Man in a silver suit (in his own title The Superior Iron Man), Scarlet Witch, The Winter Soldier, Ant-Man, Dr. Strange, Deathlok, Medusa, Inferno and Angela. Here are highlights of an interview with Marvel editor-in-chief Axel Alonso.
On Tony Stark moving to San Francisco to become the Superior Iron Man: "The newly-transformed Superior Iron Man has very ambitious plans for the city that some of its residents embrace, but not all. Like the Superior Spider-Man, Superior Iron Man is a character that's hard to root for."
On the new female Thor: "For reasons that will be revealed in Original Sin, Thor won't be able to pick up the hammer. Someone has to pick up the hammer. And someone does. And they become Thor. There are several women in Thor's life, and one of them is going to be the new Thor. You aren't going to find out who it is for some time. This is a slowly unfolding mystery."
On Marvel now having several female-centric titles: "There was a time about two and a half years ago, when we were canceling X-23, and I realized that was the last of our female-helmed titles."
