Over the last year there have been several reports that The Avengers would be facing off against an alien invasion of The Skrulls. Apparently that is no longer the case. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously told Devin Faraci from Badass Digest that Fox only owned the rights to the Super Skrull. Turns out it looks like they actually owned the entire Skrull Empire. Here's what Faraci had to say about this recently... "Well, it turns out that either he was jumping the gun or someone in legal didn't want to test the difference between those two concepts, and the aliens in The Avengers have been rebranded as something else, as well as redesigned."
So from what it sounds like, there will be some kind of alien force that the Avengers will do battle with, it will just be an original creation. There's still no solid confirmation on if any of this is solidly true or not, so it will be interesting to see what we end up getting on the big screen. What are your thoughts on this news? Would you be disappointed if the Skrulls ended up not being in the film?
