When the Thor movie came out we saw what we thought was the Infinity Gauntlet in Asgard but with the ending of the Captain America movie we now know that the Cosmic Cube was handled by the Red Scull towards the end of the movie and was recovered by Howard Stark the father of Tony Stark who is Iron Man. Well in the Avengers Secret trailer at the end of the Thor Movie the Cube is seen briefly in the film in a post-credits scene. Nick Fury shows the box to Erik Selvig who, under the control of Loki, asks what it is, to which Fury replies “Power.”
Few items in the universe could ever compare to the sheer power of a Cosmic Cube. The power within the Cube allows whoever wields it to literally reshape reality around him. Virtually anything is possible. The key to unlocking it’s power is part of Loki’s scheme to be developed in the Avengers movie. According to the Latino Review, the big bad guy the Avengers will be facing in the Joss Whedon directed film of the same name will be, who has been rumored, Loki. According to sources, Loki uses this to summon the alien race known as the Skrulls to attack earth. The Skrulls are an advanced shape-shifting warrior alien race. He wants his brother destroyed, as well as Midgard (Earth); note: but not Asgard which intends to rule.
Kevin Feige Marvel Studios President and producer on The Avengers said the following: “In my opinion, The Skrulls are really the only viable threat that would require so many super heroes to fight as a team. Sure, you could have The Hulk as a villain in the beginning, but then they have to come together for an even bigger threat. Something hinted about in Iron Man 2, Thor and Cap by Nick Fury’s presence.”
If this is true I can see the Avengers fighting among themselves as they come together and bring Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) as the Hulk together to be a team. The first test of the team my be to subdue the Hulk and calm him down so Bruce banner can be reasoned with. Which agrees with a scene showing Bruce Banner in the Avengers head quarters. Then it’s Avengers Assemble to the common threat of the Skrulls and eventually Loki and the Cosmic Cube.
Well, in using the the Cube something goes wrong and Loki no longer has control over the Skrulls. Perhaps, the Cosmic Cube loses its power, and the Skrulls now decide to invade and take over everything. Of course, the Avengers assemble – with the Hulk – to take down this threat. It is rumored that the last hour is nothing but pure action pack mayhem.
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. So in less than a year we will know what’s up with the Avengers. This can not be missed. Mark your calender. Stay tuned comic faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
