One of the questions on everyone's minds are whether or not the Skrulls will be an integral part of the plot in Joss Whedon's upcoming Avengers movie. In fact, if you've sat in and listened to our Comic Vine podcast, it's a subject that had been brought up on more than one occasion. Of the entire cast of characters in the upcoming movie, actor Tom Hiddleston who plays 'Loki' in 'Thor' and will be reprising the role in Whedon's 'The Avengers,' has been asked whether or not he will be getting a little bit of help from the alien shape shifters in the upcoming film.
So, will the Skrulls make an appearance? At the premiere of Tom Hiddleston's new film, The Deep Blue Sea, the actor was asked by a fan if there will in fact be Skrulls in the upcoming movie, to which Hiddleston responded (smiling) "no comment." Certainly a "no comment" is a little bit better than a straight "no" answer. However, this isn't the first time that Hiddleston shied away from answering the question. In an interview late last week with MTV, the actor was asked whether or not Loki would be "getting some help" in the upcoming film; his response during the interview was a little bit more in depth. The video interview with his response is below; however if you live outside of the United States, you may not be able to watch it so we've transcribed the quote for you.== TEASER ==
" Loki has help, but obviously, because if Thor can beat Loki on his own at the end of 'Thor' [movie] then surely, logically, does it take eight of them [The Avengers team] to beat him this time? But there is also evolution to Loki as well; he's more self possessed he's more menacing, and I think he knows if the Loki in Thor was about a "spiritual confusion," meaning, "who am I, where do I belong in this world," the Loki in 'The Avengers' is "I know exactly who I am and I am going to make this world belong to me."
Hiddleston was then asked whether avid fans (or "fanboys") will be pleased when they find out the "extent of the villainy," and whether it will be rewarding for people who have read the comics, to which Hiddleston, smiling broadly, gave a strong nod.
While we don't want to speculate too much, it is fun to wonder whether or not the 'Skrulls' will make an appearance in the upcoming film. But either way, as long as the movie is good, that's all we care about.
What do you think? Do you think that we'll see Skrulls in Whedon's 'The Avengers'? Is that something you would like to see?
