The Avengers Now promo image has been reported to NOT be a representation of the an Avengers team, but characters central to major changes in the overall line of new or emphasized titles.

Also.. Thor... as in Goldilocks Odinson... has been a woman before.
Not a woman taking the hammer/office/role of Thor.
Thor himself was female.
This is not some new thing or any big deal.

Sadly the dead cant stay dead and the new cant grow. We the fans are partly to blame as we refuse to let go of our favorites.

But how the new thor will be introduced? Is her from some sort of parallel universe? Or is she just a successor of the old one?

From what I can tell she'll just pop up in All-New Thor #1 and the story will be filled in from there.

Just seen this retweeted by my brother

"Disney owns marvel.
Marvel owns Thor.
Thor is the son of a king.
Thor is now female.
Thor is now a Disney princess."

That may have just destroyed any credibility that I hoped to seek in this new Thor turn of events!

There's some contention about whether or not Bradley actually took the name or was simply "referred to" as "Black Captain America."
I don't own the Truth: Red, White & Black books in which he appeared so I can't say with any confidence. However the entire story is a 2003 ret-con anyway.
And given that the story is set so far in the past ('40s,) and the idea of him as "Black Captain America" is reportedly depicted more as urban legend, it's really just not the same thing.

Wilson taking the role is much higher profile and he actually happens to be Rogers friend.

Hmm I'm sure I have an issue of a run where Sam was running around as cap. Something to do with a race specific virus. That probably doesn't count though since it probably wasn't for long.

You know... you are right. Just took a close look as his aliases as listed on the Marvel wikia and they include: "Snap" Wilson, Sam Wilson, (formerly) Captain America, Blackbird, Blackwing, & Brother Superhero.

So even THIS in not some new big thing and has happened before!

P.S. watching Thor the Dark World earlier I was reminded that Loki briefly turned Thor into a woman (Sif) for a brief moment there too. Maybe it was foreshadowing.... :twisted:

Didn't they just reset the universe with Marvel NOW? Maybe I don't completely understand the situation, was the point of a reset to support these new changes?

No. The universe is not "reset." These changes are part of continuing storylines.

This is inaccurate. Marvel has clarified that the picture showing those characters is not meant to represent any new team of Avengers. Only characters that will be making a "splash" that they want to draw to readers' attention. The flaming character is an Inhuman. Superior Iron Man will be Stark.
Such promotional images are not unlike others they have released in the past prior to new title or storyline launches, like this one:
