Why is this a surprise? The director told the cast of GotG the same thing, "don't read the comics." It's not about anything other than the director remaining in control of the film's tone/vision. It's no different than any new writer on FF trying to make their mark. At most this means it isn't a transplant of an existing storyline.

She is.

I like demi-goddess. Simpler. More greek pantheon.

However, I could see other fathers than Zeus. Maybe even a goddess as a "father". They can change shape after all.

I think she's been handled very inconsistently over the years in terms of characterization and quality. Her one general audience touchstone piece, the old show, is too camp as well. Imagine if the biggest representation of Batman in the public consciousness was still Adam West. A film version with quality acting and good characterization would go a long way.

Yes. And that's quite promising, IMO.

She's still the official god of war now, right? Wouldn't that upgrade include some more robust powers?

No. Nothing is sacred and everything must be in constant flux or the books will stagnate and the industry will die. You're either taking chances and growing the readership or you're losing business. Fact.

I'm happy to see them give it a shot, but like others I'm confused because "Thor" isn't really a mantle like "Captain America" or even "Spider-Man". It's the dude's name. And dude is still going to be around so...I'm confused. They should have done something like what they did with female Loki i they wanted to try this.

But that's just nit picking the name on my part. I still love legacy characters, and if the lady wants to call herself "Thor", sure. Just a little odd in context.
