It can be hard to keep a secret when you're the biggest summer blockbuster in town, even if said summer is still a year off. That's never been more true than it has been with The Avengers, and today we've got another whopper of a rumor that could change everything. SPOILERS AHEAD!
Until today, we knew that Cobie Smulders would be playing agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Maria Hill. One look at IMDb, though, reveals quite another story. She is listed as playing both Maria Hill and Anelle. That name might not mean anything to you at first, but use a little Google-fu and you'll discover that Anelle is princess and heir to the Skrull Empire!
Anelle, in particular, is an interesting choice, since she is best known for opposing her father's policies. If she has infiltrated S.H.I.E.L.D., will she remain loyal to the Skrull Empire, or will she side with humanity? What does that mean for Mariah Hill? She continues to be a player in Marvel comics. Is that character being completely rewritten?
Rumors have been circulating almost from the start as to whether the Skrulls would be a part of the Avengers movie. With this latest piece of news, is there finally enough evidence to support that the Skrulls will definitely be in The Avengers?
