Okay, so yesterday I woke up screaming.
In a good way.
Marvel’s second trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron was released 2 days ago, and all of us comic nerds have been fanning ourselves for hours. Let’s chat about the new trailer, and what it could mean, but if you don’t want spoilers, close this browser immediately after watching the trailer 27 times.
You have been warned.

Last night, I received a frantic text message from a friend, telling me that he had something I needed to see. That ‘something’ turned out to be two minutes of pure heart palpitations.
Yes, the long-awaited trailer for the second Avengers film–which wasn’t supposed to be released until next week–quickly made its way across the interwebs, soon finding itself on twitter and Facebook. Marvel quickly caught on to the leak, and posted this apropos response on their official Twitter account.
Within hours, Marvel officially released the trailer on their Youtube channel, and it is now up to over 3 million hits. Holy Hulking Bruce Banner, that’s a lot for six hours! When my heart recovered, I watched the trailer again. And again. And again. If you’ve been reading our blog, you know I’m a Marvel girl, and yeah, I’m gonna have a bit of geek out now. No apologies needed or warranted.
If you don’t want to know anything about Ultron or the Scarlet Witch, I suggest closing this tab on your browser, because spoilers.
The Mighty Thor, one of Marvel’s best known characters, is immensely strong, brings an ancient chivalry to the Avengers, and wields a mythical hammer. Based on the Norse God of the same name, Thor is the embodiment of a warrior, a “man’s man” if you will. We all know what he looks like.
Or do we?
As announced back in July, Marvel has taken the story of Thor and turned it upside down in the new Thor #1. To the surprise of many, Thor is now a woman. The new comic was released on October 1st, and of course I immediately downloaded it on the Marvel App to see what author Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman had done to my favorite Avenger. As a woman invested in equality, I was particularly intrigued to see their treatment of a female superhero who is best known the world over for being a man.
