Last night, some new set photos from The Avengers arrived which feature Chris Evans as Captain America fighting an actor in a motion-capture suit, and another with Captain America holding a bizarre otherworldly weapon. It seems we may have some answers to those mysterious photos as an on-set insider confirmed that The Skrulls will be villains in The Avengers, alongside Tom Hiddleston’s Loki.
The involvement of The Skrulls has been rumored for some time now, with one report dating back to December 2010, and another report from March which alleged The Skrulls would team up with Loki. Those reports were never confirmed by Marvel.
The Skrulls, which first appeared in the Marvel comic books in 1961, are a shape-shifting race of aliens who can turn into any living creature or inanimate object. It isn’t known how they become involved with Loki in The Avengers story line as of yet, but their presence in the movie would explain the motion-capture actors and the bizarre firearms.

The explosions continue for director Joss Whedon and Marvel’s The Avengers production team out on the East Ninth Street set in Cleveland, which is doubling for 42nd Street in NYC. A video has popped up online recording the action. Check out the video below:
According to a new report, production on Snow White and the Huntsman has come to a standstill as the riots keep getting worse and worse in London! The riots have gotten so out of hand in London, England, many shops in the city are now closing at the 5 p.m. daily, while other businesses have stopped operating all together — including Kristen Stewart‘s latest film, Snow White and the Huntsman.
“A friend of mine is stuck in London w/ #KristenStewart’s team. They JUST stopped #SnowWhite prep work until riots die down. #prayforlondon,” Entertainment Insider and Social Media Expert Gregory Littley tweeted Aug. 9.
Snow White and the Huntsman is scheduled to hit theaters in less than a year on June 1, 2012, so we hope they can resume pre-production soon and get back on track. Most importantly, we hope everyone involved stays out of harm’s way! (Source)

After tackling the fantasy genre with episodes of HBO’s Game of Thrones, Brian Kirk is in early talks to direct Thor 2 for Marvel Studios and Disney. This would mark Kirk’s directorial debut on a major Hollywood production, which has already been skedded for a July 26, 2013 release.
The project will bring back Chris Hemsworth’s hammer-wielding superhero to the bigscreen for his next adventure after The Avengers.
Kirk rose to the top of the list of directors vying for the job after he showed his abilities to juggle large ensembles of thesps and complex storylines in his TV projects, while also grounding the fantasy genre via his work on “Thrones.” The “Thor” sequel is expected to feature a large cast of Aasgardians and creatures in the Norse mythology-set world.
