Many decisions will need to be made when it comes to the future of the MCU characters we know and love after Phase 3 concludes, and Kevin Feige won’t rule out the chance that a female Thor could be a part of it.
Speaking to Fandango, Feige was discussing how the opportunity to present a character like a female Thor is possible because the films draw so much inspiration from the comics:
“We always look back to the comics to get those ideas … sometimes very specific storylines like “Civil War,” sometimes just nuggets or characters like “Planet Hulk.” So anything that’s happened in the comics, even a female Thor, become great potentials and the ideas from which future movies can be born.”
If the rumors are to be believed, the whole MCU could be in for a reset after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Roles may be changed and new characters taking up the mantles of old ones. This could be the perfect time for Feige to introduce a new incarnation of the Thor character, especially a female version that draws from the comics.
In the meantime, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor can be seen in the upcoming trilogy-capper Thor: Ragnarok. In addition to Hemsworth, the film stars Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, Karl Urban, and Jeff Goldblum.
Imprisoned on the other side of the universe, the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth) finds himself in a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), his former ally and fellow Avenger. Thor’s quest for survival leads him in a race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela (Cate Blanchett) from destroying his home world and the Asgardian civilization.
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters November 3rd.

7 Ways The Marvel Cinematic Universe Can Improve
Marvel Studios has changed the way that superhero films are being structured and looked upon. They have created a series of incredibly successful films under their umbrella and moved into television with several great shows (especially over on Netflix), making them a force to be reckoned with. However, Marvel has kind of become a little too comfortable when it comes to things like taking risks.
While Marvel’s films still get great reviews and are really entertaining for the most part, they also feel like safe bets. The Marvel Cinematic Universe films don’t really feel separate and there are things the studio can do to improve upon their already-winning formula. There are many things they can reach for and it’s a great time to look at these things as we move towards the release of Thor: Ragnarok, as well as next year’s Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
