A supposed casting call for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers in Albuquerque, New Mexico lists some interesting information regarding just who the Assemblers will be facing.
We already wrote about rumors of plot lines and spoilers, but this adds to that.
BeforeTheTrailer posted the information from The Avengers Open Casting Sheet revealing the Kree to play a role. You can view the casting information after the write-up.
Most of the information fits with what we already knew – or what was already rumored. However, Don Cheadle is listed as playing War Machine, but it has been stated that Iron Man’s best friend will not be present in the movie as Warmachine gets his own spinoff.
We do see Tom Hiddleston as Loki, who is said to use the Tesseract (Cosmic Cube) that appears in both Thor (see: Thor script spoilers) and Captain America: First Avenger.
It was surmised that Loki uses the Cube to call forth the aliens known as the Skrulls bringing them to Earth. However, as the sheet mentions the Kree, we see Earth gets involved in the middle of what is known as the Kree-Skrull War. Perhaps, Loki inadvertently summons both?
With the advent of the Kree, just who else will we see? Captain Marvel? As in the comics, could we see Mar-vell sent to Earth by the Kree as a scout – and then turn on his homeworld joining the Avengers? Could we see the Skrulls pretending to be humans? Or heroes?
From there, will this lead to involvement with the Inhumans (as we learned Marvel Studios is looking for a writer), the Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange – as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has mentioned them, too?
Does all this sound a bit overwhelming as the cast is beginning to sound just huge for a two hour or three hour max movie?
Still, if done right – this could be, as filmmaker James Gunn put it, “by far the best script for a Marvel movie ever.”
The Avengers is set to assemble in theaters May 4th 2012 starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Samuel L. Jackson.

A superhero team called “The Avengers” do battle against two separate alien extraterrestrial humanoid life forms. The Avengers are a superhero team, consisting of a group of Marvel Comics heroes aka “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”. The aliens that The Avengers will fight are called “The Kree” and “Skrulls”. These two extraterrestrial races become embroiled in a war for ages that ultimately makes its way to Earth, and the Avengers unite to intervene with all their power and might combined.
