This spoilerish Lego set shows the villains (in Lego form anyway).

so it could be annihilus's lads then ?



must say from the links its an interesting idea that they propose Spoiler: the atlantians.

it'd makes sense as namor attacking new york is practialy a cliche in the MU and it'd tie into loki's more maniplative ways in getting him to attack the surface world.

theres even precedence there with bloody great monsters coming into play ala that thing at the end of the ad.

plus it'd be a hell of a set up for an eventual namor film


i dont know if thats on the level or not but its fun to say theres so much potential with the series that it COULD be true.

The tv series they're talking about has nothing to do with marvel comics.

Well I'm still sticking to them being the Chitari. A lot of the Ultimates universe has been used in the recent Marvel films, and the Chitari were the alien invaders the Ultimates fought.

Plus Wheadon has the option of tying them into Cap's backstory just as it was done in the Ultimate comics.

The Chitari refer to themselves as Skrulls....so that would be cheating on Mr Whedon's behalf and a film studio would never do that.

No, the Chitari pretended to be the Skrull at some point in their history. Their leader in the Ultimates makes a comment about this and how the real Skrull were non too happy about it.

They are a seperate alien race in the Ultimate universe.

Are you sure that wasn't just the US trailer? Because several Irish cinema sites are listing it as Avengers Assemble.

Has anyone seen a poster?

The trailer that I've seen in three different cinemas is the US one, so I imagine that no Irish cinemas have an updated one yet. It would make sense for it to have the same title in cinemas in the UK and Ireland as the eventual DVD and Blu-Ray will be identical in both countries.
