We know that Marvel's The Avengers will be going up again an alien threat when they hit theaters this summer. But those involved with the project have long denied that this menace about to wreck havoc upon planet earth is the comic book's iconic army of shape shifting Skrulls. A new piece of merchandise seems to confirm otherwise, though, as the plastic pieces included in Jakks Pacific's new Marvel's The Avengers Mighty Battle Skill and Strategy board game offer our first glimpse at what is definitely a Skrull (even if they are going unnamed, or by a different name, in the movie). This game also touts that it's for the battle of the Cosmic Cube, so maybe those Red Skull rumors aren't so far off either. Check out the pics below.
Marvel's The Avengers was released May 4th, 2012 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg. The film is directed by Joss Whedon.
