While the world still stay shocked at the fact that Marvel will be changing Thor to a female, we’ve been hit with another bombshell!
Marvel has confirmed that Captain America will be an African-American!
How? Well, Falcon, who is the partner of Captain America will be taking over his his long-time ally.
“It’s about time,” Marvel executive editor, Tom Brevoort said.
He added that “in 2014, this should be a thing that we shrug off, it shouldn’t be seen as revolutionary, but it still feels exciting.”
But if you think the publisher will be killing the original Captain America, Steve Rodgers, you’d be wrong.
This change is prompted only because in the story, Rodgers would be at age 90.
In 2007, Captain America’s original sidekick, Bucky took over when Rodger was supposedly killed off.
So, no one is really sure as of yet, exactly how the publishers will make the transition.
“And that just makes us more aware that we have more readers of different backgrounds who are hungry for characters who come from circumstances like their own. Our creators take that seriously,” Tom Brevoort said on “The View” this week.
The new series “The All-new Captain American” is set to launch this November.
