Marvel Comics is making Thor a woman. From Time Magazine:
TIME: How do you think this will impact fans who have been with the male version of Thor for such a long time?
Jason Aaron, writer of the Thor series: If you’re a long-time Thor fan you know there’s kind of a tradition from time to time of somebody else picking up that hammer. Beta Ray Bill was a horse-faced alien guy who picked up the hammer. At one point Thor was a frog. So I think if we can accept Thor as a frog and a horse-faced alien, we should be able to accept a woman being able to pick up that hammer and wield it for a while, which surprisingly we’ve never really seen before.
“ I came here from Romania when I was 12 years old. I had an accent. High school was tough a little bit for a few years. I wanted to fit in. I wanted to be liked. I wanted to be good-looking. I wanted to be popular. I spent a lot of time thinking, “What are these people going to think of me?” but I think part of developing a strong sense of self is that you have to kind start to trust in yourself. ”
I first met Carey Mulligan at a cast and crew dinner for Never Let Me Go, just before we started shooting. And there was a point in the dinner where we were all going around the circle at the dinner table and asking each other what our favorite films were. We were all being very pretentious and naming our favorite Michael Haneke movie or, you know, insert art house filmmaker here kind of thing, and I can see Carey on the other side of the table getting very nervous, very fidgety, very red, and it was coming closer to her. It was her turn, and she couldn’t control it, these words tumbled out of her. She said, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. And I fell in love with her. Andrew Garfield

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. This needs to be me! This WILL be me, in 2 years. JUST WAIT AND SEE, WORLD.
Yes, France, je vivrai la langue, and I WILL MEET A PRETTY FRENCH BOY AND LIFE WILL BE BEAUTIFUL.
Or, you know, Morgan will surprise me with a visit. Or something. >_>
Well, self from 3 years ago, you do get the French boy. He’s desperately in love with you, and you’re scared and keep your distance (because you could love him too but it. can’t. work; someone’s waiting back home). Now what.
