Avengers 4: Shock theory suggests THIS character will BETRAY MCU heroes – in a big way
Captain Marvel, out next year, will introduce not only Carol Danvers to the MCU, but also Skrulls – with Ben Mendelsohn known to be playing one.
Skrulls are shapeshifters; an extraterrestrial species set on destroying Earth – and able to blend in with society in a bid to play the long game.
It’s often been theorised that a current member of the Marvel movie ensemble could soon be revealed to have been a Skrull all along – and a new fan theory thinks it’s General Ross.
Posting to Reddit, user camzabob reasoned: “General Ross is a Skrull. Here are some ideas.
“He is in favour of the accords, trying to split the Avengers up to weaken them before a possible invasion.
“His first appearance in The Incredible Hulk, he tries to actively stop the Hulk, who would be problematic in the event of an invasion.”
Indeed, he has been seen to be against the Avengers multiple times; dating back to when he tried to terminate Bruce Banner in The Incredible Hulk.
He later – in Infinity War – tried to prevent the Avengers from teaming up together.
So while it’s highly unlikely that bosses intended for him to be revealed as a Skrull from day one, it’s certainly not beyond the realms of possibility for such a revelation to be made now.
Our theorist continued: “In the comics, the Super Skrull has the abilities of all four members of the Fantastic Four, flame powers and flight, invisibility, stretchiness and most notably in this theory, the strength and arms of the Thing.”
Bear in mind here that the Fantastic Four could well make an MCU bow in the near future given Disney’s Fox takeover.
“I propose that General Ross was trying to get Hulk DNA to infuse a Super Skrull with the DNA of the Hulk.
“It may be possibly that he got his hands on some DNA and if the Super Skrull appears, they’d have Hulk strength and arms (and instead of FF abilities, OG 6 Avengers abilities), but, here’s what I think would be neat…
“Have the Super Skrull infused with Abomination DNA, giving him that look instead. And, instead of Fantastic Four abilities, have him have previous villain powers instead.
“I think this would be an amazing callback that could really solidify the Skrulls’ place in the MCU.”
Avengers 4 is out on April 26, 2019.
