They've shot an AVENGERS trailer... oh and LATINO REVIEW claims to know the villains!!!

Hey folks, Harry here...  

I got word that MARVEL has shot a specific teaser trailer for THE AVENGERS - and that LOKI is featured in that teaser trailer.   Makes total sense.   I imagine that will either be on THOR or CAP...  or Both if they're smart...   But then...  our buddies over at LATINO REVIEW - Kellvin says that he's learned that Joss Whedon is going to be having Loki bring in The Skrulls.   

So - Let's see if I have this straight.   In like a year's time...   The man that gave us SERENITY - is going to bring a cosmic SKRULLian smackdown to Earth being fought off by the AVENGERS?   Jesus, we live in blessed times.   I mean, MARVEL is getting science fiction and fantasy...   This just delights me to no end.   I mean, this is amazing.   We're going to have things we never thought we'd see.   And I'll be walking into theater to see it!   Fucking Cool!

    Skrulls not new, Loki is though.

    by shutupfanboy

    I wonder if the Odin stash is going to be part of this like it is rumored to be in Cap. Skrulls could be fun or annoying. Also, doing Serenity is not something to be proud of .

    SO true .... Fuck me that show was dull.

  • March 2, 2011, 6:43 p.m. CST

    by Jesse

    Feels like a big THOR spoiler to me... Be weird airing an Avengers trailer before THOR that shows Loki as the villain when he and THOR are supposed to have a big go in the first film. Or is Destroyer basically his only adversary this time with a Loki cliffhanger ending-segue to Avengers?

  • BECAUSE THEY SUCK FUCKIN' ASS! This better not be true because if it is the whole film is on very uneasy footing. Attack of the green, pointy-eared prune-chins? FUCKING CHRIST!

  • March 2, 2011, 6:46 p.m. CST

    This movie will skrull-fuck us...

    by tommyleespenis

    For some reason I thought that Hulk would be the villain, perhaps controlled by Loki with the avengers attempting to stop his out of control rampage, but this is much cooler.

  • March 2, 2011, 6:50 p.m. CST

    Skrulls should have been in FF

    by DeckardB26354

    This all sounds cool and ambitious. If the Fantastic Four was done right to begin with, we would already have seen the Skrulls.

  • March 2, 2011, 6:50 p.m. CST

    1st half should focus on Hulk, 2nd half, The Skrulls

    Pretty simple to figure out.

    What they should do

    by bee152

    is attach the teaser to the end of the Thor movie.

  • March 2, 2011, 6:54 p.m. CST

    Xander Harris a Skrull.

    by shutupfanboy

    No one would see it coming. I do think the trailer will after Cap is over.

    the appellaxians...

    by tommyleespenis

    Well if they ever do a Justice League movie, they might not be able do the appellaxian story(the story that brought the Justice League together in the first place), it would seem too similar..I mean with Green Lantern having Angela Bassett as Amanda Waller possibly doing the same role as Samuel L Jackson in Iron Man, it seems as if DC is copying Marvel.. this is a possible way that DC can go: -Introduce Amanda Waller in Green Lantern -Have Amanda Waller make a cameo in Superman-Man of steel or even Ryan Reynolds make a cameo there -make "the flash" movie-a script already exists -you already have batman and wonder woman is getting a TV show- they can connect them all! -Start making the JLA movie! Throw in Martian Manhunter and possibly even good old aquaman and you're set!

  • March 2, 2011, 7:03 p.m. CST

    I hope…

    by time2323

    …we get more of an Ultimates take on the Skrulls. The traditional character design will not be taken seriously by general audiences without some major changes. Some, from what weve seen so far, Battle LA style action with the Avengers in the middle of it all? Yeah, I could live with that.

    How much is the budget? Marvel and Disney better shell out the cash.

    by The Founder

    This sounds cool and although Im not sold on Joss Whedon a 100% The Skrulls has to be done right and the movie has to be epic in scope.

  • March 2, 2011, 7:14 p.m. CST

    The Skrulls were always lame. I want HYDRA!

    by Raymar

  • Wasn't the Skrulls first featured in the F4? Is FOX gonna try and claim the rites becuase of their F4 connection? I sure as hell hope not.

  • March 2, 2011, 7:19 p.m. CST

    The Avengers will be done filming by the time Cap opens...

    by Chewtoy

    ...So they should actually be able to show a real trailer following Cap. I would guess this teaser is either to play along with Thor, or it is going to be a big FX shot which they need to get started on right away.

    What about Serenity qualifies Whedon...

    by Grasscutter

    to be THE guy to crap out a Avengers VS Skrulls movie? Last time I checked, the Skrulls don't talk people to death with dialogue written in the same voice. Maybe if you want to see an Avengers movie where the Avengers are tricked by the Skrulls to engage some "big bad" (blurghdurrrr), luring them away from Avengers mansion so the Skrulls can attack home base and be ultimately be defeated by the least and unexpected of the team?

    Am I the only one nervous about Whedon directing?

    by TSTEWIE

    I have mad geek love for the guy due to FIREFLY and "Astonishing X-Men" but he hasn't truly proven himself to be a good director, and THE AVENGERS seems like too big a task for someone who is practically still a newb (director.) Plus, SERENITY sucked. FIREFLY rocks, SERENITY sucks. All they did was kill the best characters from the show and use a crappy bounty hunter villain that was nowhere near as sweet as the one from the last episode. Plus, River's fighting was not that cool. The one scene from the series where she picks up a gun and kills two dudes was better than any of SERENITY, or all of SERENITY.

    Fox only has the rights to the Super-Skrull....

    by Kai_Mah'gra

    ....they don't have the rights to the rest of the Skrulls storyline or characters. So anything to do with the Skrull invasion or the Kree-Skrull war, is fair game for Marvel.

    Everything in Harry's 2nd graph is true

    by Arteska

    but there will still inexplicably be pre-hate from people that purport to have wanted it for most of their lives.

  • March 2, 2011, 7:39 p.m. CST

    Serenity was an F-U to the fans and Fox.

    by shutupfanboy

    Same thing goes that the Angel finale was. The only thing it captured was the very real fact Joss thinks killing off characters equals a good story. Yes, killing Tara was shocking as was Mrs. Sommers after that, it became old hat. You didn't kill off one character who has an unsolved backstory that could lead to sequels and the laid back dude that has the best piloting moment since Han in the Asteroid field while keeping the boring dofus doctor alive. I also think Jan or the second command could have died as well. If you worried about Joss directing this I don't blame you.

  • March 2, 2011, 7:50 p.m. CST

    Batman is sci-fi.

    by shutupfanboy

    High tech toys equals sci-fi. All of Marvel has a sci-fi elements from radiation accidents, super-genes and cosmic entities.

  • March 2, 2011, 7:50 p.m. CST

    Harry, any word on when that Avengers teaser trailer will debut?

    by Kai_Mah'gra

    ....I'm guessing in front of Thor since that is coming out first, but is there any chance we could see it earlier than then?

  • March 2, 2011, 7:50 p.m. CST

    So this is another alien invasion movie?

    by Green

    Full disclosure: I love THE AVENGERS. I love Joss Whedon's TV work. I want this to be good. Honestly, though, I'm a little nervous about what you're telling me, Harry. I agree you need a massive threat in this movie, something that could potentially neutralize a team of major superheroes. But really, is this the best choice? The market's getting saturated with alien invasion movies: Skyline, Battle: Los Angeles, Our Darkest Hour -- even frickin' Battleship. Are audiences going to be sick of that storyline by the time Avengers comes out? Maybe I'm just being paranoid. The main draw for this film is obviously the superheroes. But still, it makes me uncomfortable...

    by IndustryKiller!

    Whedon using characters and changing their personalities/watering them down as cheap conduits for his quipy jokes. Im sure they'll be a bit of that but hopefully the actors can sell it.

  • March 2, 2011, 8:03 p.m. CST

    that should have said "as long as we don't"

    by IndustryKiller!

    edit option please

  • There isn't a ton of ways you can go with a massive enough threat for The Avengers. I guess you could put a team of villians together, but been there already.

  • March 2, 2011, 8:04 p.m. CST

    Its The Avengers, not a stand alone Invasion flick

    so; Ant Man & The Wasp?

    by vernoy

    so they're staying true to Avengers #1 with Loki as the featured do-badder; but they will betray Avengers #1 if they exclude Ant Man(who pulls the plug on Loki at the end of the book) and The Wasp from THE AVENGERS...'nuff said!

  • March 2, 2011, 8:20 p.m. CST

    Forget all that other crap. Then in the sequel they could fight the first pair of Air Jordans ever made. Part Three, there's an alliance between the forces of Colonel Sanders and General Tsao. It'll be called Avengers: The Chickenvasion. Grey Poupon joins the Avengers in that one cause mustard is the weakness of all chicken everywhere. Then there'll be a reboot. And in the reboot, they'll fight all the swiss cheese in the world! Marvel, I got this. Lemme at them scripts, yo! These are billion dollar ideas! Ah. There's part 8! They fight a billion dollars!

    by boosebaster

    Your comment about Whedon "changing X-Men characters to support his own quips" or whatever retarded statement it was... This just belies the fact that you know nothing of the X-Men. The majority of true X-Men fans could see that Whedon "got" the voices of these characters like no one else. His Wolverine is spot on, his Cyclops is the best he's ever been written etc. etc. I'd be interested to know which X-Men you thought were out of character and why.

    by Smack_Teddy

    i believe Joss Whedon got all kinds of pulled and confused and angry and emotional in various directions over what happened to Firefly - a brilliant series i find you damn dull if you feel that way about it - and ended up putting out a mixed bag of ambiguous tone and context for fans and newcomers alike that felt like a subconscious funeral for the series... but it still proves along with the rest of his work he could seriously knock it out the park with Avengers here. I have nothing but cautious faith and optimism in the guy.

    Where Serenity is shit and JJs Star Trek is awesome. Must be terrible going through life being a geek knowing nothing about cinema. Best thing about Whedon helming The Avengers is that it will be shot old-school, with things like staging, mise-en-scene and composition, and avoiding a cinema-illiterate TV-movie look with lens flares.

  • Joss just kill characters for the sake of some fictional geek street cred. Again, if he wanted to kill certain characters I am fine with it, hell I gave you list. I just think you don't like the fact that I schooled your ass on the sci-fi superhero shit, so you come after we with some weak sauce even though I admitted it was ok to kill characters, he just picked the wrong ones.

    Stellan Skarsgård in Avengers (SPOILER?)

    by Carl XVI Gustaf

    Just read in a Swedish paper that Stellan is to reprise his role from Thor. Must mean something, might be a spoiler to people who have read the Thor script, but then those people don't seem to mind spoilers ;)

    Hope this trailer gets out soon...

    by ChickenStu

    I think the fans want some kind of feel as to what this movie is going to be.

  • "Must be terrible going through life being a geek knowing nothing about cinema. Best thing about Whedon helming The Avengers is that it will be shot old-school" If YOU knew anything about "cinema", you'd know there's a huge difference between choosing to shoot a film "old-school" and being forced to because of a shoestring budget. And having a shoestring budget for a movie like Serenity means the studio had little faith in making a movie based on a god-awful tv show. The fact that the movie didn't break even on it's budget until DVD sales were counted in shows they were right. Whedon will use CG at every chance in The Avengers, because now he'll have the budget for it. Nice try with the insult, though. Really.

    Harry just jinxed the movie.

    Any time he geeks out over these little bread crumbs he gets it's never a good thing...

    Actual amazingly cool news!

    by EastcoastAvenger

    Iron Man, Thor, and Cap, with Hulk and Loki and Scrulls and who knows what other Marvel easter eggs they might squeez in there. Man! That really is darn cool!

    Harry WALKING INTO A THEATER

    by Gumbo1

  • March 3, 2011, 10:51 a.m. CST

    Pretty simple to see where this is going

    by David Ortiz

    Nick Fury assembles the Avengers to capture Hulk. Meanwhile, Loki baits the Skrulls to Earth and the Avengers realize they need to release Hulk to have a chance against the Skrulls. Mayhem ensues. Cliffhanger? Hulk is loose again and someone quits the team. $300 million box office.

  • March 3, 2011, 10:51 a.m. CST

    Skrulls + Walking Harry = cool

    What's with some of fanboys, and your questioning Joss's director's cred?

    by Amadeo Zeller

    I don't see anyone questioning Marc Webb's qualifications in directing a $250 million budget reboot of Spiderman...And what has he (Marc) done, other than that low budget 500 Days of Summer? I think the Avengers are in great hands with Joss at the helm.

    Superheroes vs. an Alien Invasion.

    by hank henshaw

    I doubt it can be done right, it's hard to capture the scope and scale of such a thing with a limited movie budget (even if Marvel/Disney are willing to spend 200 million on it). The risk is it might turn out like "Galactus" in that awful Fantastic Four movie.

    black widow will be kicking group skrull ass in skanky dive bar.

    nick fury will be sitting at the bar watching and acting impressed.

    No point dissing Whedon

    by Lemure_v2

    Granted what he's directed so far has sucked - but that was on a limited budget with no big names. Now he's in a different playground. I'd still rather see Brad Bird behind this, but until we see some footage we can't put Whedon down.

  • March 3, 2011, 1:42 p.m. CST

    I hope Whedon includes a "hero shot"

    by KryptoniteCross

    One thing none of the recent superhero team-up movies have done is to have a complicated "hero shot" showing all the good guys in action. You know, a single lengthy shot featuring a sweeping camera move where the heroes run or fly into focus one or two at a time, fighting off the bad guys. The current Avengers cartoon title sequence does this, as do many similar animated superhero shows. It's can be a dynamic, badass shot -- it would be such a waste to not have that in the movie. Do it, Whedon!

    Really looking forward to the performance of...

    by carlotta_valdes

    ...'Mark Ruffal' as Ed Norton. Hilarious...he's such an afterthought, they didn't even try to get his name right. Excited for the film though!

    Tricia Helfer as the Enchantress

    by Drath

    Would be more satisfying than Loki.

    Has anyone seen the Skrull invasion background in MvC3?

    by Tikidonkeypunch

    It's amazing. That background actually has me excited about this.

    Serenity vs Serenity + Secret Wars

    by fanboy71

    Serenity the movie was nowhere near as good as Serenity the pilot episode of Firefly, but it did let us see our beloved crew one more time. I think Joss will knock this out of the park, and hopefully garner the credibility to bring back the Serenity crew for another go round. I long for the day when Marvel gets ALL their characters back from all the other shitty studios, and then... SECRET WARS! How awesome would that be?
