Joss Whedon finally reveals The Avengers alien race! (Spoilers)

It’s the Chitauri! Finally! Now, we can all get some sleep. Recently, the film has been receiving a lot of praise at early screenings. Joss Whedon held a press conference to finally set the record straight.

“The alien race are the Chitauri — or a version of them — because they are not one of the key races and they don’t have a storied history. That wasn’t the point. I know this debate will go on long after I’m dead. I would say it was the Kree-Skrull race.”

There you have it. It was only last month, Joss Whedon revealed that the Skrulls and the Kree would not be in the film. Some fans have questioned why the identity was keep secret for so long. If you look at the history of the Chitauri, you will see that just knowing the name of the race does reveal some spoilers for the movie.

The Chitauri race is the main enemy of The Ultimates in the comic books. The shapeshifting alien race were able to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D in their second attempt to conquer the earth. S.H.I.E.L.D agents, Hawkeye and Black Widow, were able to sniff some of them out, but not before the Chitauri led them into a trap the destroyed most of S.H.I.E.L.D’s forces.  Upon finding the Chitauri’s base, Iron Man, Captain America and S.H.I.E.L.D attacked, but it was The Hulk that single-handedly defeated a large majority of the Chitauri. Sound familiar?

Still no word yet on that 2nd villain rumor but new reports just came out saying that The Avengers have shot a new scene for the film right after the LA premiere. I wonder what it could be? If anything, you all know to be sure to stay in your seats after the end credits when The Avengers hits theaters May 4th.
