Close Enconters of the Skrull Kind? Okay, now that we got that pun out of the way, the internet's neverending rumor factory thinks Joss Whedon's Avengers (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/769/769931.html) will battle an alien threat straight from the comic books.

The Skrulls, a race of very green humanoid aliens that can change their shape/appearance at wiil, will duke it out with Cap and Iron in The Avengers, according to ComicBookMovie.com. (http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/Poniverse/news/?a=18337)

CMB claims that sources "close to the production" believe that "The Skrulls will 'brainwash' and use the Hulk", similar to how Loki wielded the Green Guy in the comics. The sources go on to say that fans should not expect a full on invasion, a la Marvel's Secret Invasion - the Skrulls will operate more in a puppet master capacity, saving their big bad attack for a sequel.

The Green Goblin gets Skrull'd.

But wait, there's more! Should this rumor pan out, the Skrulls won't be the only alien race joining the Avengers on the big screen. Their enemy, the Kree, may surface as earth's allies. *Mind = blown*

So this rumor is all sorts of interesting on many levels. If it is true, than it implies that The Avengers will be the most "comic-y" of the Marvel films, incorporating a storyline that bucks the grounded realism found in most of Marvel's movies.

With actor Kevin Pennington rumored to be in the running to play the Kree alien Noh-Varr in the movie, the Skrulls' role in Whedon's film inches closer to being a reality.

Currently, the Buffy (http://uk.tv.ign.com/objects/825/825088.html) creator is re-writing Zak Penn's original script and gearing up for a May 4, 2012 release date. And yes, we'll keep ya posted on further Avengers goodness.

So, wait...is this supposed to be a separate movie? Or just more information on the upcoming Avengers movie? I'm assuming it's separate, it just seems weird that it would be announced this early (ie. before the Avengers movie is even out).

This is actually the Avengers movie, if I recall. They have had plans to make all the movies crossover/tie in to each other like an actual comic book universe, culminating with the Avengers. Telling is the fact that the actors who signed on to play Thor and Captain America have signed on to play them in 9 different movies. I am unsure how they will pull this all off, but am giving them the benefit of the doubt.

I always though that the Fantastic Four fought the skrull or what ever their called? But I just really don't like they how they casted the Human Torch to play Captain America, Should have used someone else. They should have used Sam Winchester from supernatural, don't know his real name for CAP.
