Avengers Rumor Debunked! Will NOT Face Off Against The Skrulls And Kree as Reported

Posted on 28 December 2010 by Christian

The information recently published was in fact due to “a research error” by the New Mexico newspaper taking the chances of the team facing off against the aliens right back to being nothing more than rumor…

After Ain’t It Cool news stumbled across an interesting newspaper article in the Albuquerque Journal (reported here on CBM by our own DCMarvelFreshman) which stated that, “…the Avengers battle with two alien races, the Skrulls and the Kree,” the earlier rumours about this were given a lot of extra credibility. Well, the guys over at SuperHeroHype have done a little digging and confirmed that this statement was nothing more than the newspapers own research rather than information they’d learned directly from Marvel who recently confirmed that they would film there.

SuperheroHype has confirmed that the information published in the Albuquerque Journal was not officially released through Marvel Studios and can instead be attributed to a research error on the part of the newspaper.

While this does not preclude the film from featuring the Kree or the Skrull, there is no hard evidence to date to suggest their inclusion.

As they point out, this doesnt mean that they won’t feature in the movie, but as everyone from director Joss Whedon to stars like Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo have hinted at them following the classic Avengers vs. Hulk/Loki storyline, I think it’s fair to say that’s the most likely option of what we’ll see. Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!

The Avengers is set to be released on May 4, 2012 and stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson.
