There is talk that the Skrulls will be the villains in the Avengers movie. In the first Avengers movie, they will be an infiltration team, and supposed it is they who turn the Hulk against the Avengers. Then for second movie its an all out invasion of the Skrulls, but this time humanity is helped by the Kree.

I can't recall the link I read this from though.

Please please please let that be true.  I don't even really care that much who plays him, but Hawkeye is the Han Solo of the Avengers, so I'd love to see him included.

That's perfect, he even looks like Clint Barton.

Ed Norton out as Banner/Hulk for Avengers movie.

I like the articles mention of Sharlto Copely for the new Banner.  That guy has impressed me so much.  He's 10 times the actor after 2 roles than some others I could name that are near A-listers these days.

Not sure if we want to break this one out as well, but it looks like Joss Whedon has now confirmed Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in the Avengers movie.

Also, the Green Lantern movie logo has been revealed (with a panel later today as well).  I suppose GL is ready for his own thread here too, but I'll let Jeff do the honors there ;).

Hawkeye.  YES.  Now they just have to stay true to the comic version of him.  So help me if we get the Ultimates Hawkeye... >:(

Ish.  At least it won't be bullseye for sure.  If they'll just give him arrors, a purple costume, and Han Solo's attitude I'll be so happy....

I'm sure everyone has seen this by now, but the assembled the Avengers cast on stage last night during the Marvel Studios panel.  Renner is indeed playing Hawkeye, and Mark Ruffalo is taking over as Bruce Banner/Hulk.  Pic (and details) at the linky, but it sounds like the following actors were there:

RDJ (Tony Stark/Iron Man)
Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Cap)
Chris Hemsworth (Thor)
Scarlett Johannson (Black Widow)
Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson)
Samuel Jackson (Nick Fury)
Mark Ruffalo (Banner/Hulk)
Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye)

Pretty good lineup, I wonder if they'll be adding anyone else in the next couple years or not (like Wasp or Ant Man, who I think have been rumored off and on).

Video of the introduction of 'the Avengers' at Comic Con.  I have to say, it does get you psyched for the movie.
