Joss Whedon Clarifies THE AVENGERS Aliens' Identity!

Once it was announced that mischief-maker Loki would be the primary villain of Marvel's The Avengers, and wouldn't be alone, many speculated that among the many extraterrestrial races of Marvel Comics' universe, the shapeshifting Skrulls were guaranteed. However, with highly-praised screenings being held recently, director-writer Joss Whedon held a press conference to set the record straight. 

"The alien race are the Chitauri -- or a version of them -- because they are not one of the key races and they don’t have a storied history. That wasn’t the point. I know this debate will go on long after I’m dead. I would say it was the Kree-Skrull race." 

So what do you guys think? Let us know in the comments.

unfortunately they can't use the Skrulls because Fox owns the right but I agree I would have liked to see them.

it wouldve been cool if they used the skrulls but think theyd be better in a sequel. They could set it up in Cap america 2, hulk 2, ironman 3, ect and have something after the credits to tie it in with Avengers 2

I agree with @Cristi not bad. It could've been the Skrulls and pleased all the fans, but then you'd have to deal with their mimicking powers and that'd be a whole other ordeal to have to deal with. Or it could've been The Frost Giants recruited by Loki and I personally would've been disappointed (Idk if any you would've been mad at that) and I would've been saddened to not see any alien ass being kicked. But Joss and the team pulled through with this "everyone wins" choice. I only read some of the Ultimates series but I enjoyed them in the animated films, they were quite badass! So I salute Joss!
