I guess this counts as an International Promotion and/or part of the North American marketing budget.

Billboards spotted in Mexico.

It's okay. It is rather interesting. I could have sworn I read an interview where Joss said that character wouldn't appear in the film. But your theory makes sense given what we saw at the end of "Captain America: The First Avenger" and where Loki went at the end of "Thor". I think this was first brought up in the "Thor" thread.
Hm, maybe they end up at Thanos' place?!?
And there they decide to work together...

Another source.

Not another source, the same source - it reiterates the information and sites the 1st source.

Personally that plot sounds pretty dubious to me. It's far to convoluted for such a film to be successful with a mainstream audience, and Marvel isn't going to risk their franchise piece.

Indeed, with as many cast members in the Avengers, I'd have a hard time seeing large elements of screen time devoted to the badies.

But I guess we'll see.

Honestly, I think everything we've heard so far makes a certain amount of sense given what we've seen in the movies so far. Considering where Loki and the Skull end up at the end of their last appearances, it makes sense for them to meet on some other plane. We've already seen the Infinity Gauntlet in Thor, and I can't imagine Thanos getting a Hell of a lot of screen time. His appearance (if any) will more than likely be brief plot device that will establish his character for the audience (ala Nick Fury in Iron Man and Hawkeye in Thor) to set up some future movie--probably Thor 2 or the proposed Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

I doubt the accuracy of at least some of that "leak". We already know per the end of Thor that the Macguffin for Avengers is the Cosmic Cube, not the Infinity Gauntlet.

The bit about Red Skull could be true though, he has a history with the Cube after all.

BTW: I totally geeked out at RDJ's line in the trailer: "If we can't save the world, we d*** sure are gonna avenge it!"

Way to go RDJ! Hope that line stays in.

Abomination is in The Avengers? Thanks for spoiling that for me.

As has been mentioned though we've also seen the Infinity Gauntlet and the Thanos rumours have been constant since "Thor". I don't like the fact that the source are the same guys with the Bradley Cooper as Luthor rumour for "Man of Steel" That kind of puts me off.
