I think it's already been done before in What If's and temporary storylines.

My prediction is that this will be a temporary story arc that will end with the male Thor back wielding the hammer. Marvel will find that the kind of person who is going to be impressed by this change wouldn't buy comics no matter what. Meanwhile, the real new readership that is being attracted to the comic - that is, people who have watched the MCU movies - will just be confused as fuck.

There are characters in the MU that could much more creditably be handed off to a female "titleholder". Actually, Marvel has already done this with Captain Marvel.
