"The Avengers" Movie - Bad Guys revealed

Thursday 3 March 2011, by Webmaster

Exclusive: We Know Who The Bad Guys Are In ’The Avengers’

For quite some time no one really knew who "The Avengers" would fight in the upcoming 2012 movie that Joss Whedon is directing. There were stories that the HULK would be the villain and even in 2009 we reported that Kevin Feige sort of hinted that the Skrulls might be the villains.

Feige went as far as saying the following:

In my opinion, The Skrulls are really the only viable threat that would require so many super heroes to fight as a team. Sure, you could have The Hulk as a villain in the beginning, but then they have to come together for an even bigger threat. Something hinted about in IM2, Thor and Cap by Nick Fury’s presence. Plus Fox doesn’t have the rights to The Skrulls, only the Super Skrull. But this is just my inner geek thinking out loud and hoping.

Well Marvel geek nerds, today I have some juicy news to tell you, a few hours ago I was talking to my reliable inside sources who have confirmed with me who the villain is and much more.

There was some stories that the Skrulls were in the movie BUT of course the powers that be denied it as usual.

Some spoilers are coming up so be warned!

You still here?

OKAY you have been warned.

The main villain for The Avengers is none other than Thor’s adoptive brother and archenemy LOKI!

Tom Hiddleston will portray Loki in the upcoming live-action Marvel Studios film "Thor" directed by Kenneth Branagh.

But that’s not all, Loki needs some serious muscle to go up against "The Avengers" and he does this by using the cosmic cube seen in "Captain America: The First Avenger" and also seen in the screen capture I took of the "Thor" Comic-Con trailer. Loki uses the cube to get a hold of the Aliens (aka The Skrulls) to invade Earth and fight "The Avengers." Skrulls are green-skinned reptilian humanoids with large pointed ears, red or green eyes, and corrugated chins.

I actually like the idea of Loki/the Aliens going up against "The Avengers" because this allows Marvel to do something really cool and also the fact that there are a lot Skrulls "The Avengers" have to go up against.

Makes total sense how "The Avengers" ties in to the upcoming Thor and Captain America movies.

What do you think of Loki and the Aliens vs "The Avengers?"

"The Avengers" stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Clark Gregg, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Mark Ruffal.

The film hits theaters summer of May 4, 2012.
