Just in case you didn’t know, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn says the Skrulls are co-owned by both Marvel Studios and Fox Studios (similar to Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver).
Gunn took to Twitter to answer a fan’s question about the Skrulls where he also reveals certain members of the shape-changing alien reptilian race are specificially owned by Fox.
“Some specific Skrulls are at Fox. But the Skrulls as a whole are co-owned,” Gunn said.
While James Gunn didn’t mention the specific Skrulls, we can probably assume those Skrulls with names are owned by Fox, such as the Super-Skrull Kl’rt.
Whether or not Marvel ever uses the Skrulls in a movie is probaby doubtful as Marvel used the Ultimate Comics version of the Skrulls in The Avengers with the Chitauri.
It’s also probably a safe bet Marvel Studios won’t be adapting the Marvel Comics “Secret Invasion” storyline any time soon as it was written by Brian Bendis, a member of the Marvel Comics creative committee that Kevin Feige recently booted from having any involvement in the Marvel movies. Bendis also took the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book away from Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning when word of the movie getting green lit became known.
