After Amazing Spider-Man toys tipped us off to a possible photo of Rhys Ifans’ Lizard character, we’re now hearing that a villain from Marvel movies past might have a significant part in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, due out in theaters in May.

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD!




That would be Captain America’s nemesis, Red Skull, played by Hugo Weaving in Joe Johnston’s origin story from last summer.

DigitalSpy is reporting from a HeroClix preview that Skull will appear alongside Loki (Tom Hiddleston) as the villains in Whedon’s film. We’ve already seen Loki in the early film trailers, but had no idea that Skull could resurface.

It makes sense. Captain America and Thor went out of their way to establish both Red Skull and Loki as vital enemies. As of right now, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) lack recognizable foes that could be brought into the Avengers fold. So if Whedon wants to build something truly massive in scope, he’d be wise to bring in more than one opponent for this mighty Marvel team. Whedon needs a significant villain to justify the pairing of all of these superpowers. Maybe his solution is to have two villains?

Unlike the Spider-Man story, there’s no real toy showing Red Skull in an Avengers pose, so this could be nothing more than a rumor. We’ll likely know more as we get closer to the Avengers’ release date, which is May 4.

POSSIBLE SPOILER:






Has anything ever come of the Thanos rumor or has it been squashed? I remember reading a few months back he was a possible nemesis to be a legit threat to the Avengers. Also the random Infinity Gauntlet display at SDCC had some people wondering.

I still think Kang would be the best villain for this one, ah well.

If everything goes well, I'll be on a trip at that time on Singapore. Hope to catch it on the big screen. :)

10 second teaser of the new Super Bowl trailer. Looks like possible Skrull confirmation finally.

The Avengers Smashes Opening-Weekend Record with $207.1 Million!

Quote:
The Avengers is the new king of the opening weekend.

The film is the first to break $200 million in three days. It destroyed the mark held by the previous weekend record-holder, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

Also, Indians didn't like India's Kolkata slum portrayal in the film.

Quote:
"Kolkata has a rich culture and heritage, and a filmmaker should respect that," Bollywood star Rituparna Sengupta, who lives in Kolkata, told the Hindustan Times. "There are two scenes about India, and they only show slums. It could have been done in better taste."

"It is disturbing to see the murky underbelly of India in Hollywood films," added fellow actor Neha Dhupia. "But before pointing it out to the west, we need to make efforts to change their perception about us."

"When will Hollywood stop cashing in on the poverty here?" a bank employee named Rishabh Bal told the paper.
