An interesting report from London suggests that the SHIELD Helicarrier will be in the avengers movie. When asked about the appearance of the helicarrier in a animated short film unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London, the film’s director Joshua Wexler had this to say:
“Certain things like the S.H.I.E.L.D helicarrier were made more modern than in the comics in order to fit in with designs they are working on for the Avengers movie.”
So it looks like we will likely see the helicarrier in the new movie.
Also making an appearence in that animated short was Ms. Marvel. When asked about whether Mr. Wexler thought she would be in the upcoming movie as well, he apparently replied “maybe…” with a wink wink, nudge nudge (knowwhatImean, knowwhatImean). Take that with a grain of salt, but if it’s true (even if it’s just her flying past real fast after the end credits) then it lends a lot of weight to the rumors of the Skrull being the big baddie in the Avengers movie as Ms. Marvel is a genetic hybrid of Kree and human DNA or something. The Kree are the Skrull’s big enemy. If they are in town to “genetically enhance” a human, then you can bet your ball soaked beers that the Skrull are around too.
Then again, this could all just be rumor and none of it matters anyway…
