Marvel’s The Avengers Alien Menace Revealed?

There’s been quite a debate about whether or not Skrulls will appear on the big screen in May 4th’s Marvel’s The Avengers and, while there’s still no confirmation either way, MTV Geek managed to get their hands on some toy photos that should fuel the debate fire.

While the below figurine from the tie-in “Mighty Battle Skill & Strategy Game” certainly appears to be a Skrull, it’s not uncommon for tie-in merchandise to sometimes borrow characters from the comics, even when they’re not in the film. (Deathstroke, for example, was released as an action figure in the Dark Knight line).

Continuing the epic big-screen adventures started in Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s The Avengers is the superhero team up of a lifetime. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as SHIELD, finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.

Written and directed by Joss Whedon, the film stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson.
