A Rundown Of 2011's Spoilers For THE AVENGERS

We had earlier reports from an unlikely source that a certain actress would be appearing in the movie, now Tom Hidddleston seemingly confirms at least a cameo. Plus, could a certain, cool Iron Man 2 "suitcase" return in The Avengers?

Features Opinion

IS GWYNETH PALTROW IN THE AVENGERS?

Rumors first began when Paltrow was spotted on the New Mexico set. No official confirmation was given from Marvel Studios but a recent report from an Indian Newspaper stating that actors Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone would be providing voice-over talents for Paltrow (Pepper Potts) and Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), respectively. Now, we have even stronger confirmation from one of the stars of the film, Tom Hiddleston. When asked to quickly respond with 1-word answers to describe each of his Avengers co-stars, the good people over at Just Jared slipped in Paltrow's name and Hiddleston comically described her as "Mister".


COULD TONY STARK'S SUITCASE ARMOR RETURN IN THE AVENGERS?

In the same interview with Just Jared that provided the strongest evidence yet that Gwyneth Paltrow will indeed appear in the movie, Tom Hiddleston also gave an interesting answer when asked to describe Robert Downey Jr. Hiddleston gave the answer of "Suitcase" possibly referring to a certain armor innovation from Iron Man 2?



IS JEFFREY WRIGHT PLAYING THANOS?
This bit of news came back in August that actor Jeffrey Wright was spotted on the Avengers Cleveland set. I actually tend to believe he was there, I mean, it's pretty hard to deny your location when people have laid eyes on you. The question is whether or not he was there to film scenes for The Avengers and if so, who will he be playing? The prevailing notion amongst the masses seem to lean towards Wright portraying Thanos.


WILL WE FINALLY SEE THE INFINITY GAUNTLET?
Arguably, the most powerful device in the Marvel Universe, the Infinity Gauntlet was first seen in Thor and was heavily showcased at San Diego Comic-Con. However, aside from a blink-and-you-missed-it appearance in Odin's Vault, we have yet to see the gauntlet make an appearance in another Marvel movie. Will The Avengers change that and is that an Infinity Gem in Loki's staff?





JUST WHO IS IN LOKI'S ARMY?
There have been some wild rumors about this one, featuring Marvel villain stalwarts the Skrulls, Kree, Atlanteans, Annihilus, Frost Giants, and the Phalanx. So far, this is the best picture we have to go on. For my money, that sure does look like one of the Phalanx....just sayin.



WILL AGENT COULSON DIE?

I tried to get some answers from Clark Gregg about who exactly is in Loki's army but he wasn't playing ball, lol. One thing I did manage to squeeze out of him was the fact that he is currently in talks to star in one of Marvel's films after The Avengers so I think it's safe to say he won't kick the bucket. Is he a Skrull, though.....



CAPTAIN AMERICA WILL LEAD THE TEAM.
Despite various cast members recently stating that all the superheroes are jockeying for a leadership role on the team, I think Chris Hemsworth let it slip out of the bag [@ 0:18] that Captain America does eventually lead the team, just like in the comic books. I like how Robert Downey Jr. tried to cover it up...too late Mr. Stark!



THE HULK WILL BE NAKED.

A tweet from Mr. Ruffallo warned moviegoers to prepare for giant bare-assed greeness when The Avengers finally drop this May.




THE LEVIATHAN IS INDEED A SEA-MONSTER.

It was first reported here and then later we received another report that the mysterious Leviathan in the Avengers is indeed a sea-monster. Now whether or not this is Fing Fang Foom, Giganto or the Midgard Serpent is anyone's guess.



NO OTHER HEROES WILL CAMEO.
Kevin Feige himself stated that no other heroes will cameo in the movie. I'm a little bummed by this news but that doesn't mean they won't be teased. Perhaps someone will reference the scientific work of Hank Pym or maybe Wakanda will be mentioned. Regardless, I'm sure we will get tons of Easter Eggs in the movie.






One thing's for sure though, the movie looks to be everything promised and then some.
