Filling the shoes of Annie Potts' Janine Melnitz is our favorite God of Thunder, Chris Hemsworth.

The Avengers star was announced by Ghostbusters director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Melissa McCarthy's career) via Twitter.

Provided that this is true and not just Feig blowing smoke, Hemsworth's casting follows the trend of gender role-reversals for the reboot, which has an all-female gang of Busters, including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy and Kate McKinnon.

Ghostbusters is due out in 2016.
