It has not been clear which villains would appear in Joss Whedon's The Avengers. There have been stories that it would be the Hulk or the Skrulls. Today we have some spoilerish news to report, thanks to our friends at LatinoReview. Reliable inside sources have confirmed the villain.
Keep reading, but beware of spoilers!
OKAY. You have been warned.
The primary villain for The Avengers is Thor's adoptive brother and archenemy Loki!
Tom Hiddleston stars as Loki in Kenneth Branagh's upcoming Thor. Loki will have to gain 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. Take a look at the cube below:
Loki uses the cube to team up with 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."
It makes complete sense for Marvel to build a connection between Thor and Captain America. I am digging the idea too. What are your thoughts?
The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Clark Gregg, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, and Mark Ruffalo.
The film hits theaters May 4, 2012.
