Movie spoilers can come from all directions these days, from the “on purpose” slip of a director or the “opps” of an on set picture making the rounds on the Internet, to the Internet movie database posting material a tad too early. Those of you that don’t want to know any Avengers spoilers should just stop right here. Those that really don’t care, go ahead and click through the jump.
Now that you’ve proven that you really don’t give a crap about spoiling the Avengers movie let’s get down to business. We’ve known that Cobie Smulders was cast as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill and would play Nick Fury’s second in command fiddle (Don’t get me started on Dum Dum Dugan, I’m still pissed.) Now, after the efforts of an over eager IMDB copy writer we know that Cobie will also play Anelle, Skrull Princess.
Skrulls have long been the rumored villain in the upcoming Avengers movie. For those that haven’t goggled Anelle by this time she is the Skrull princess that died when Galactus (Eater of Worlds) came to the Skrull homeworld and had a late night snack. Looks like a rewrite for her character. Maybe a melding of Anelle and Veranke, the Queen of the Skrull Empire who invades the Earth after replacing many superheroes with Skrull infiltrators.
Now that the “Will there be Skrulls in the Avengers movie?” is answered, the next question is how big a part will Skrulls play in the movie? Will they be a major player or just a subplot that leads to a bigger skrull invasion story in Avengers II?
