Loki’s alien army finally identified (SPOILERS)
THIS POST CONTAINS MAJOR SPOILER FOR THE AVENGERS
The biggest mystery surrounding Joss Whedon’s The Avengers was the identity of Loki’s alien army. There have been many rumors as to who they are, and the most popular seemed to be the Skrulls, but that was shot several times. Well, it seems that rumor is both right and wrong. Whedon revealed the aliens as the Chitauri or at least “a version of them”, who all Marvel fans know as the Skrulls in the Ultimate comics. However, Whedon describes them as the “Kree-Skrull” race. This is possibley being done so they could introduce the Kree/Skrull war in the future sequels, and to avoid wasting well established characters (at least in the comics).
