More Avengers Details from Empire

Kevin Feige Talks Avengers Villain in Empire Issue

With Empire Magazine's March issue dedicated to the highly-anticipated launch of Marvel's The Avengers, we have some more cover images of the heroes to pass around. An interesting sidepiece with Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige discussing the villains of the May 4th release. Despite the wide-spread rumors across the web, the Skrulls will not be the ones wrecking havoc on S.H.I.E.L.D. in the upcoming film.

"Who said they were aliens?" he teases. Beings from the Nine Realms, then, ventures Empire? "Closer...It's not Skrulls, I've been clear about that. Beyond that, we want to hide it. The identity of the alien race is not impactful. It exists in the comic books, but we're not setting up the Kree-Skrull war or anything like that."

When asked whether Red Skull is truly dead, Feige left the door open for the character to return but clarified that he won't be in Marvel's The Avengers as well.

"Was Skull vaporised at the end of the movie, or thrust into another realm?" asks Feige. "That remains to be seen. It would be fun to see Skull in future, but he's not in this one." Whedon though is a little more circumspect when Empire confronts him. "I do have a comment on that," he says, before pulling a move worthy of Loki himself. "It's...oh, you're breaking up!"

The heroes were given their own Empire cover shots. You can check them out down below.

Thanks to CrazyCEO for the submission.

I  bet it'll either be ANNIHILUS' SCAVENGERS or ATLANTEANS that will serve as Loki's army

I bet it'll be the Baltimore Ravens.  It will look like defeat is imminent, then they will metaphorically shank a field goal and hit the hulk.

OK, larkcall, that is officially funny.

haha @ Larkcall. Or how about if Kyle Williams joined the Avengers?? He would probably accidentally pull the pin off a grenade and blow everybody up or something....

I bet nothing other then this movie will be the most fun, most anticipated and dreamed as a kid project that I can't wait to see for 2012.

Hey, no mention of the rumored Spidey cameo?

It's all over the net. Jenny Agutter (yes of Logan's Run) is in The Avengers and revealed/spoiled Spidey is in the movie. I tend to believe she messed up her superheroes in her comment but you never know since Sony and Disney struck a partnership with Spidey last November. Maybe Sony will want to show Spidey in the Avengers since this is a rebooted version.

 I hate those dodgy photoshop composite covers, they look so fake as the light source is all over the place it just looks amateur , gripe over, They look pretty cool, except Thors blow dry hair, get some hair products man, you're a God for pete's sake

If thaere is a Spidey Cameo, that be sweet.  It would also support my theory as why they've rebooted the story following more of the ultimate Story line as well. 

@Wise: Atlanteans holy Ph*&ck that would be so lovely... And a Namor cameo...  that would be such wood.  Anhillus might be sweet.  But what if its Thanos and his minions...
