Avengers Kree-Skrull War Rumour not Based on Facts

— Posted by Rodney

While just yesterday we got wind that the Kree-Skrull war was going to be the basis of The Avengers film, it turns out that tidbit of information leaked in an Albuquerque Journal article was not backed up by facts.

Superhero Hype explains

While the article features quotes from people involved with bringing the production to New Mexico, there is no confirmation that the Albuquerque Journal got this story information from Marvel Studios or Disney, so we’ll have to wait and see if they are indeed going this route.

So while there seems to be a hell of a lot of sites claiming the statement was “debunked” it is more accurate to say that there is nothing at all to validate it.

No one from the Marvel camp has come right out and said “Avengers isn’t about the Kree-Skrull war” but when the reporter that let spill this rumoured plotline as fact was asked who told him that, he was left with nothing to back it up.

So it is debunked that the journalist was the first to break this plot spilling news, but still no one has said its not either. He could have accidentally tripped over the news.

But I don’t think he did. I honestly expect the Avenger’s first mission together is going to be to reign in the Hulk.

(I also secretly hope it ends with them making the tough decision to put him in a rocketship and send him to a far off planet to live in peace invariably setting forth the events of World War Hulk - but that wont happen either)

    No Skrulls?
    I’m not complaining that’s for sure.

    Avengers #1 (comics) will be the movie with quite a few tweeks in there.
    Loki will be controlling Hulk and having him destroy shit up while they go with the whole Cap in the ice stuff and then it’s anybodys guess. I think Kang or Baron Nemo was in the comics plotline But I’ll have to go back to the Marvel Materworks hardcover to confirm.

    Just sayin’

    I think they might try to bring the Ultimates version of reigning in the Hulk which would be cool. I’d love to see Captain America and the Hulk in a one on one show down were a good kick to the Hulk’s balls drops the Hulk. That would be classic. This could also lead into the Avenger’s needing the Hulk’s assistance when the Earth is being secretly invaded by Skrulls. If they ended with sending Hulk into space this could lead to a stand alone Hulk movie which would deal with the Hulk’s enslavement and return to earth as conqueror. That would be alot more exciting than just Hulk Smash which is the theme in the other movies.

    There’s only so many villains I think they can shoehorn into a big enough threat that unites them all. I think the Hulk can be a side or 2nd act villain (like Venom in Spidey 3), with Ultron or Loki being the main event.
