If you’ve been reading the site for any length of time now, you know that we’ve been speculating on which villains will be menacing planet Earth — a villain (or villains) so dastardly, so powerful, that he/she/they require the combined might of Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, and The Hulk (not to mention the Black Widow, Hawkeye, and SHIELD) to stop. Through it all, one possibility has always surfaced, but for the sake of those who wishes not to be spoiled by this latest rumor, I caution you — SPOILERS AHOY!
Well, potential spoilers, anyway. But spoilers nevertheless.
According to the boys at AICN, Joss Whedon, the head honcho bringing “The Avengers” to the big screen, has shot a teaser trailer for “The Avengers” that will be tacked on to either “Thor” or “Captain America”, or possibly both. (I’m going with both. What would be the point of NOT including it in both?)
And who will be in that “Avengers” teaser trailer? According to AICN, with input from the boys at Latino Review, it will be Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who will, we’re told, “bring in The Skrulls”.
This is not a big surprise (if true). For the longest time, the Skrulls have always been the perfect villains for an Avengers movie. Who/what else could possibly unite such a formidable force, after all, but an intergalactic alien invasion by a super-powered alien race? Plus, alien invasion movies are in nowadays, doncha know, so there’s that, too. The inclusion of Loki as some kind of “behind the scenes” mastermind is a nice touch.
So what do you think? If this is true, would The Skrulls + Loki as villains in the first “Avengers” movie tickle your fancy?
