Marvel has something in store for Squirrel Girl, but what?

Companies applying for or receiving patents is reported everywhere, but it’s mostly non-news— companies patent things all the time for nothing more than legal reasons, and it doesn’t mean Apple is building an iDildo or whatever for example. But Marvel has a history of applying for trademarks of certain characters across a spectrum of media shortly before they do something big with them. So the comic geek world is literally atwitter about Marvel’s move to go trademark crazy all of a sudden with one of its weirdest, most powerful, most adorable characters that you’ve probably never heard of, but one with a nutty fan base. So is Marvel going to do a Squirrel Girl movie? After Guardians, a lot is possible. Put her in a cartoon or on TV in some other fashion? We can only hope. That’s seriously her, attacking Wolverine like she doesn’t even give a fuck, because she absolutely does not.

Marvel’s Thor is now a chick, and what this might mean for the future

Yesterday morning, Marvel announced on The View of all places, that in the next issue of Thor, the mighty Norse god will be a she. “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita, this is Thor”. According to the storyline, Thor does something to piss everyone off and is deemed to not be worthy of wielding the hammer anymore, but that the new female Thor had her life saved by the current one, and now somehow is Thor. Idk, details are scarce, but Marvel says this is a permanent change, though for right now, it with only affect the ‘Thor’ comic book, not the offshoots.

Now that Disney owns a good chunk of everyone’s childhood for the foreseeable future, it’s all just one big happy Disney-Pixar-Lucasfilm-Marvel family.

I’m just gonna rip off io9/Topless Robot writer Rob Bricken here, because it sums the whole thing up pretty well: "Oh? You think you’re finally getting ready to make a Justice League movie? That’s nice. We have our next 40 movies planned out. I think we’re going to do Squirrel Girl, too. Not because we think she’s a good character, mind you, but just because if we manage to make a Squirrel Girl movie before you figure out how to make a Wonder Woman movie it’ll be hilarious."
