Wanna Know Who The Bad Guys Are In The Avengers Movie?

It looks like the guys over at Latino Review have used their sources to find out who the villains are going to be. Everyone has been speculating that it would be the Hulk (which would be boring), because there would be one fight scene, Hulk joins the good guys and end of story. Since it looks like the Marvel movies are grounded in more of the Ultimates universe (hence, Sam Jackson as Nick Fury), it makes sense that they would go the route they've chosen.

So who are the villains? Who have they chosen? Are you really ready for the spoiler? Turn away now if you don't want to know......I'll wait......

Still there?

Last warning....

It looks like it's going to be Loki and the Skrulls. No, that's not the name of an 80's cover band. Those are two separate things. Loki:

is Thor's half brother, and a trickster god. We will be seeing Loki in the Thor movie coming out this May.

The Skrulls:

are a race of aliens that can shape-shift into anyone they want to be. Also, by getting a genetic sample, they can incorporate any powers from that sample into themselves. 

So there you have it, kids. Loki uses either the Cosmic Cube (which we will see in Captain America in July) or the Infinity Gauntlet to get the Skrulls to invade Earth, causing the Avengers to be formed. Pieces of the story will be laid in both Thor and Captain America (both coming out this year) only to be picked up and tied together in the Avengers in the Summer of 2012. 

Wanna know more about these storylines? Go to your friendly neighborhood comic book store to find out more. Why? Because reading a synopsis on Wikipedia is not only boring, but makes you look like a cheapskate.
