Is it possible...will the Avengers battle the Skrulls?
This rumor concerns who the main antagonists for THE AVENGERS will be. The buzz amongst the movie sites is that the Skrulls are the most likely candidate. To be more specific, the film is supposedly following the original storyline where Loki obtains control over the Hulk to unleash fury upon the Earth, which then causes THE AVENGERS to assemble for the first time.
For those who may not know too much about the Skrulls, here's a bit of info from Marvel:
"The Skrulls are an extraterrestrial humanoid race who have created a vast interstellar empire, the oldest known empire still in existence, within the Andromeda Galaxy.. A Skrull can mentally cause the unstable molecules that comprise his or her body to become pliant, enabling him or her to assume other forms through muscular expansion and contraction. Once a new shape has been assumed (human, animal, alien), it takes a conscious act of will to assume another form or revert to natural.. Although the Skrulls became aware of Earth (due to its nearness to a natural warp-space access point) eons ago, it was not until recent times that they considered Earth’s threat. Their first regular surveillances of Earth began in the 1930s. To date most of the Skrulls’ excursions to Earth have been extremely small-scale, with no more than a handful of soldier-infiltrators being dispatched at any given time. It is not yet known how the death of the current ruling family will affect official policy toward Earth or the government of the empire in general."
More than one inside source is giving ComicBookMovie.com the scoop that the Skrulls will brainwash and use the Hulk like in the original comics. However, the Skrulls won't come in masses. Expect a full on alien invasion in the sequel. Don't fret, another alien race will join in on the fun. The Kree, enemies of the Skrulls will have a part in the film. This wasn't surprising news since newbie actor Kevin Pennington is being considered for the role of Noh-Varr, who is a Kree.
I often wondered when the Skrulls would come into play. Hopefully the sources are correct and they do somewhat go by the original comic storyline. It would be very cool to see the Skrulls and the Kree on the big screen.
