Please be aware: I love Marvel and plan on seeing The Avengers on opening day, so this news is tainted with Marvel love.
There has been some huge stirrings in the Marvel camp today about Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers movie, to be released in 2012.
Apparently, some scenes have been shot to be attached to either Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger or both, revealing the villain to the movie. And, the best part is, it looks like we know who it is!
If you want to find out, click the jump. But you will be entering spoiler territory.
It appears that Thor’s half-brother, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) is set to be the big bad guy in The Avengers.
Rumors have been swirling for months about who the villain would be. The internet was split between Loki and a race of shape-shifting aliens knows as The Skrulls. Well, as it turns out, don’t count the Skrulls out just yet!
According to Latino Review, the Skrulls will indeed make an appearance in the movie.
According to the article, Loki will get his hands on the Cosmic Cube (which we know will be seen in Captain America: The First Avenger), and use it to summon the Skrulls to use for his nefarious means.
It could be a very interesting story! But personally, I always liked the idea of The Avengers forming to take on an insane Hulk, like in the comics.
Either way, I’m excited!
