The villains in the upcoming Avengers flick have finally been revealed! Major spoilers lie ahead, so you can’t say we didn’t warn you.
LatinoReview picked up the scoop that “the main villain for The Avengers is none other than Thor’s adoptive brother and archenemy LOKI!” However, the character makes an appearance in the Kenneth Branagh-helmed Thor later this year, with Tom Hiddleston in the role.
Loki utilizes a cube to enlist aliens called Skrulls to battle against the Avengers. This cube makes an appearance in both Captain America: The First Avenger and Thor.
This follows theory after theory concerning who the Avengers would have to fight in this superhero epic. Many had in fact suspected this plotline. But will it be “big” enough to satisfy the massive hype around the project.
There’s little to no complexity to be found, as an overlord employing pawns to do his dirty work is the oldest trick in the book. Joss Whedon will make sure to include some great dialogue, and I can’t imagine the action sequences being shameful. However, I’m worried about the project if this really is the big gist of it all. Namely, we don’t know how formidable Loki will be in Thor or how Hiddleston’s performance will turn out.
