Y No Skrull Or Kree? Whedon Sounds Off

In a recent statement by Joss Whedon he not only tells us again that both alien races are not in The Avengers, but also why they’re not.

“I will say only this: It is not the Kree or the Skrulls. Those two aliens are Marvel mainstays and have enormous backstories. They have a big life of their own that just could not be contained in a film where I already had seven movie stars.”

“The Skrulls — they can shape change. That’s a whole thing. I’ve already got Loki. He’s got magic. Once you got magic along with your Iron Man and your Black Widow — it’s a real juggling act.”

I must say I agree on every point here. When you’re already dealing with the relationships between 7 different heroes and a villain that’s already good enough, then why bring in other villains who could do so much more down the road. This movie is going to be better because Whedon understands this. Too bad Brett Ratner and Sam Raimi didn’t understand this in the 3rd installments of X-Men and Spiderman.
