Marvel Will Announce All-New "Thundering Title" on 'The View" Live Today. Might it Be Storm?

Although it could also be a character connected to Thor's universe - Thor being the God of Thunder.

Storm

UPDATE: Here's the news that was announced, shared on Twitter. Nothing to do with Storm... obviously:

  • RT @theviewtv: .@Marvel announces that Thor is no longer worthy of Mjolnir, and now a woman will be wielding the mighty Uru Hammer! #TheView

Below is my original post...

I actually received the press release on this yesterday, but only just got around to reading it this morning. So some of you may have already heard the news.

In short, Marvel is set to make an exclusive announcement live on ABC's "The View," today, July 15, when the talkshow airs from 11am to 12 noon, when host Whoopi Goldberg, co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy and guest co-host Ana Belaval reveal what the press release describes as "an all-new thundering title."

In case you aren't aware, ABC is owned by Disney, which also owns Marvel. So there's your connection.

Although, I still had to wonder why "The View" was chosen to make this announcement. Looking at the obvious clues - to start, the fact that the audience for "The View" comprises primarily of women - I can only assume that it will be a woman superhero from Marvel's pantheon of superheroes. And the use of the word "thundering" in the press release description of what the new title will be, suggests a superhero who has might have some connection to the weather. I'm certainly not a comic book geek, nor am I intimately familiar with the Marvel universe, so I can only go with the most obvious choice here, and say that it just might be an announcement about Storm!

Although it could also be a character connected to Thor's universe - Thor being the God of Thunder.

Whether it's just a comic book announcement, an animated or live-action series, or a feature film, there isn't enough data to make an educated guess with.

But really, what an odd decision to make the announcement on "The View." Unless I'm just uninformed, "The View" doesn't seem like a haven for comic book superhero enthusiasts.

I'll hand the mic over to those of you in-the-know to chime in with your thoughts.

I'll certainly be tuning in (probably the first time I'll ever have watched "The View" aside from YouTube clips from the show shared online). And if it is Storm, you can bet that I'll be updating this post with the news.

Till then...
