With all the Marvel films quietly gathering speed towards The Avengers film, fanboys are holding their breath waiting to see who the Avengers would face off against.
Well this is pure rumour, but io9.com says someone knows something. It will be the Skrulls and a hypnotized Hulk.
Marvel Freshman (who blogs over at Comic Book Movie) was tweeting last night that he’d heard from a fairly reliable tipster about which threat Marvel’s biggest super-team might be facing: a Skrull invasion. (And the Hulk gets brainwashed as well.)
Sounds a little bit too much like fanwank pandering. Fake rumour invented just to please the masses. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Skrulls on a film, but I just don’t know that they would fit in against the Avengers just yet. Maybe I have to see some mystical added into the soup to get my head out of the superscience of Iron Man first.
But they might have had me hoping if they didn’t say they were going to include a brainwashed Hulk too. Personally I think Avengers would be a great film to have them face off against the Hulk. One of their own goes out of control? The social implications as well as the guaranteed smashing combat is a formula made in Hollywood Heaven.
Skrulls can take a back seat. Maybe show a shapeshifter cameo to hint at them down the road.
Hulk Smash! Then get Norton to cameo for the 5 minutes we see the Hulk as Banner – just because he said it wont happen.
There’s your movie.
