Avengers plot rumour - possible spoilers

Comic Book Movie are claiming the Skrulls will be the antagonists in The Avengers, manipulating Hulk in the same kinda way Loki did back in Avengers #1. Apparently, they're operating on the down-low and not doing the full-on invasion. Possibly the plot for Avengers 2?

Sounds like they're mixing up Avengers #1 with the plot for The Ultimates which had the shape-shifting slimebags covertly operating on Earth before later out-right attacking...

If that's true, they need a Jennifer Garner cameo.

Re: Avengers plot rumour - possible spoilers

whilst i'd love jen to return as Elektra (i liked her movie and Daredevil) it won't happen cuz Fox have the rights to her...

saying that, i would've thought the Skrulls would be part of the F4 rights...

I'm skeptical; from what I've seen, it seems like they're going to use Loki as the main villain, as he was in Avengers #1.

Re: Avengers plot rumour - possible spoilers

Just because Loki was in Avengers #1 doesn't mean they're obliged to follow that in the movie. The first FANTASTIC FOUR movie didn't feature the Mole Man. The first SPIDER-MAN movie didn't have him fighting the Chameleon. The first BATMAN movie wasn't an adaptation of "The Case of the Chemical Syndicate"--which was the first published Batman story. The first X-MEN movie didn't feature Angel and the Beast and Iceman . . . .

Like every other superhero movie, they'll probably cherry-pick from decades of comic books to find whatever works best for the movie.

Re: Avengers plot rumour - possible spoilers

If I remember right, the Skrulls first appeared in an issue of Fantastic Four; and that makes them derivative of the Fantastic Four license. As such, the Skrull physical appearance and name would belong to Fox unless some kind of arrangement was made.

Of course, this doesn't stop Marvel Studios from using an alien shape shifter invasion as part of The Avengers movie plot; they just couldn't call them Skrull.

Yeah, the Skrulls would be owned by the FF franchise which is owned by FOX. No way.

I might be mistaken, but wasn't it reported that Hugo Weaving was going to be the Red Skull in both Captain America and Avengers?

I'd not be surprised if we saw a mixing of the 616 origin and the second Ultimates arc...we've seen snippets of the Ultimate universe in the movie verse since "Spider-Man"...the younger Venom, Eddie Brock Jr.

I don't recall Avengers. Cap, yes. Its late and I'm about to go to bed or else I'd google or hit the Cap film thread to check.

Hugo Weaving has been confirmed only so far for "Captain America" as far as I know.
