On Tuesday morning Whoopi Goldberg and the hosts of The View announced that Marvel will relaunch Thor this October with a 'worthy' woman brandishing the hammer. Marvel followed that announcement with two more high profile switcheroos on Wednesday night as Entertainment Weekly revealed a new-ish and possibly superior Iron Man, and Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada joined comedian Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report to announce that a new guy will take up Captain America's shield.
That in itself isn't much of a surprise -- original Cap Steve Rogers has passed on his mantle a few times, before eventually yanking it back. After spending some time in Dimension Z and fighting the Iron Nail and whatnot, he's now too old to Avenge from the front lines. The big reveal is that the new Captain America will be Sam Wilson, the African-American superhero currently known as Falcon.
Hot on the heels of their panel presentations in Hall H today at Comic-Con 2013, Marvel has unveiled new logos and concept art for 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron,' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy.'
Every year Marvel likes to do something big at Comic-Con to get audiences excited for what's coming next. Though we won't see the film until 2015, Marvel brought out Joss Whedon to announce the title of 'The Avengers 2.' It's 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron.'
