The REAL reason for rumors of a Kree-Skrull war in The Avengers

Rumor has it that the upcoming Avengers movie will be about the Kree and the Skrulls, two alien races in the Marvel universe who are at war. Now rumor has it that the first rumor isn't true.

SuperHeroHype decided to get to the bottom of this rumor morass by confirming the news. What they learned: "The information published in the Albuquerque Journal was not officially released through Marvel Studios and can instead be attributed to a research error on the part of the newspaper. "

A research error?

Marvel didn't actually make a statement—the Albuquerque Journal did. Does this mean that the rumors are completely true, but Marvel won't acknowledge it? Or because the rumors were not released through Marvel studios, the rumors therefore have to ignored? Or that they're completely and utterly false?

There is, however, one reason we suspect the rumor isn't true. The original article in the Albuquerque Journal read, "The Avengers battle with two alien races, the Skrulls and the Kree."

As we know from the Marvel universe, the Skrulls and the Kree have been at war for thousands of years. If the Avengers are fighting both races, we can then infer that the two races have in some way allied with each other to battle the Avengers. Considering their millennia of aggression, it seems highly unlikely.

Unless the Avengers are battling two fronts, of course.
