So, we got all excited earlier this week when the Albuquerque journal, in the middle of a piece about where THE AVENGERS will be filming, said that the superhero team would be up against the Skrull and the Kree.
This sent a bunch of geeks like me into paroxisms of delight at the thought of what could be in store. Sadly, this has now been revealed to be 'a research error'.
This is a shame really, as I was kinda hoping for some serious epic-scale action in the Avengers. I mean, without it it's just going to be another Marvel flick, just with more characters and little justification for the several-year-long build-up to it.
I really hope the film, being written and directed by Joss Whedon and featuring a huge ensemble cast, ends up having something huge for the team to face, and not just some regular bad guy. Hell, bring on Galactus!
Aw screw it, just make Secret Invasion.
