Yesterday, Marvel let us know to keep an eye on The View today, for an 'all-new thundering title'. That title: an all new Thor comic being lead, for the first time, by a woman.

According to Whoopi, Thor will make a mistake so grievous, he will no longer be worthy of Mjolnir and the power it conveys. Instead, a woman will take up the mantle as Thor, the God of Thunder. And they are being specific that this is not Thor-Girl, but just Thor... The Thor.

This announcement adds to the thrust of diversity we've seen from Marvel over the past year with Kamala Kahn as Ms Marvel and Miles Morales as Spider-Man. The story and woman have yet to be revealed, but we know she'll be blond.

What do you think about this news? Will Thor finally be an interesting property?

The latest issue of Marvel's Star Wars comic (which is 100% confirmed canon, by the way) dropped a huge bomb: Han Solo has a wife.  Or something.

This may well be a "Mrs. Reynolds" situation, where all is not as it seems and she isn't really be his wife, but as far as we know, she's the real deal.  Whoever she is, she seems to feel a really strong sense of ownership over Han.  Check out what she said about him when she was first introduced back in issue four:

We'll have to wait for issue seven to see how this reveal plays out; maybe they're divorced?  They're definitely at least estranged.  Either way, the comic takes place right after the events of A New Hope, so Sana Solo will definitely have an effect on the way I perceive Han in episodes V and VI.

The reasons why I love and adore the sh*t out of Ryan Reynolds or Deadpool (cause honestly they're increasingly one in the same) continue to pile up. The man's latest antics center on his comment he made after seeing Nathan Fillion (self-proclaimed geek enthusiast, starred in Firefly and Castle) post a picture of his coffee mug on Instagram:



Ow, oww. Laying it on thick there with the sass, Deadpool. But would you expect anything less from our favorite badmouthed merc?



Well, things between Fillion and Reynolds took off pleasantly from there, when Fillion quickly backtracked on his mug selection:



And Reynolds was quick to offer up a sweet nod of approval:
