So far, during this movie’s media blitz, the only Avenger that we hadn’t seen was The Hulk. Sure, we saw his uninteresting alter-ego, but you and I both know that you and I don’t care about his uninteresting alter-ego. Which leads us to today and this cover for an Avengers prelude comic, courtesy of Comic Book Movie, which shows…The Hulk! Check it out!
I don’t know what people were expecting, but that’s what I was expecting. You know; The Hulk. I guess the color of his pants could be a real deal-breaker for some people, but I’m a man so I don’t care about such things.
And onward we roll with a bunch of covers from the upcoming issue of Empire. They’re pretty standard fare…enjoy!
This same issue of Empire also features an interview with Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, in which he was asked about the villains in THE AVENGERS. He squashed a few rumors, but didn’t give us resolution. Here’s one excerpt from Superhero Hype.
“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.”
And here’s the other.
“Was Skull vaporized 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 “Skull” that he is talking about, is the Red Skull from CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, in case you couldn’t piece that together.
That’s all I got.
