"Episodes 8 of both shows, Arrow and Flash, are going to be a two-hour crossover event," Andrew Kreisberg revealed to the site. "[Also], in Episode 4, Felicity [Emily Bett Rickards] is going to come to The Flash."

I'm excited for Thor and pretty interested in Iron Man....Tom Taylor has been awesome on Injustice and Earth 2 so I'll definitely check out his Iron Man

I'm kind of meh about Captain America....I usually love what Remender does but his Captain America run has been lackluster

No...I'm pretty sure that Marvel only has the animated rights and can't do anything live action

I voted "Other" because I'm completely fine with what Marvel is doing

I've said it before and I'll most likely say it again....Jason Aaron has been knocking it out of the park with his run on God of Thunder....I see no reason not to trust in his ability to tell an interesting and engaging story....I for one will wait until I read the story before I start throwing around accusations based off of very limited information

I only really like Connor Kent myself. To say he's boring displays a gross misunderstanding or underestimation of the character. After the 2000s and Johns put him on The Teen Titans, Connor really grew as a character. His mind control, relationship with Cassie and valiant sacrifice against Superboy Prime were all brilliant character developments. And his return was actually done tastefully too followed up by two awesome runs on the character thanks to Geoff Johns and Jeff Lemire. It's a shame he's been butchered in The New 52.

@superguy1591: No it doesn't. Trust me as someone who actually knows both Superman and Superboy in the Pre New 52 universe, it really, really doesn't make for an interesting concept. It relies on cheap shock value, over exaggerated fan fiction and the rivalry of shipping between Clois and Cliana not to mention that it's just plain dumb. Sorry to be harsh but it really is. You can't think that's any kind of a good idea at all. I'd much rather take the half clone that hangs out with Kal, his parents and his dog over your preposterous suggestion any day of the week. And I know several Superboy fans on here that would do the same thing. Sorry to burst your bubble but Pre New 52 Connor Kent was a superb character in the 2000s who became a fan favourite rather than your temporary Days of Future Past rip off.

@lvenger we may not always agree on everything but when you say stuff like this it makes me want to hug you

This is just another publicity stunt where an established character's race, gender or sexual preference (in this case it's gender) is changed to generate some media buzz and supposedly attract new readers.

Here is what's going to happen:

  1. The first few issues will sell well and Marvel will declare the idea a success.
  2. Sales will then plummet as the novelty wears off and most readers/buyers stop buying the series.
  3. "Thor" will then revert to his true male self again and some fans will return to the character.
  4. Some longtime Thor fans will still feel alienated due to the tampering with their favorite character and never return.
  5. Thor will eventually be used in yet another publicity stunt to generate media buzz despite the possible harm to the character and alienation of core fans.

this sounds like what a lot of people said about Superior Spider-man

It's a bad idea and already has critical flaws within it already. That is ground enough for criticism and scepticism already.

critical flaws? all you know is that Thor becomes unworthy and that an unknown character who he's saved at some point in his life picks up the hammer and becomes the new "Thor" and that Thor will continue on without the hammer using his ax....that's all we know
