Joss Whedon has put one rumor to rest for The Avengers. He confirmed that the villains backing up Loki won't be the shape shifting Skrulls or the Kree. Which makes us wonder just who the enemy is?
As of now, Whedon is still mum on the identity of Loki's army, but he has decided to put those alien enemy rumors to rest.
"Those two aliens are Marvel mainstays and have enormous backstories," Whedon explained. "They have a big life of their own that just could not be contained in a film where I already had seven movie stars."
Even without such a large cast, Whedon says having the Skrulls in his movie would have been redundant:
"The Skrulls - they can shape change. That's a whole thing," he said. "I've already got Loki. He's got magic. Once you got magic along with your Iron Man and your Black Widow - it's a real juggling act."
