Could The Abomination be an Avengers Villain?

avengers tim roth the abomination Could The Abomination be an Avengers Villain?

In one of last summer’s Marvel movies, The Incredible Hulk, we got to see the Hulk fight a worthy supervillain in the form of The Abomination whose alter ego, Emil Blonsky, was played by the talented Tim Roth.

SCI FI Wire was in attendance for the Television Critics Association summer press tour this past week and participated in a group interview with Tim Roth who was there for his TV series, Lie to Me. In the interview, Roth could not escape being questioned about his future with Marvel.


In the interview, Roth was asked about his contract with Marvel Studios and if they’ve approached him about doing more movies with them.

“They have, but in a very different way… I don’t want to get into it, but they signed me up for three [films].”

Not surprising considering all of the latest Marvel Studios contracts have included options for multiple films. We saw Samuel L. Jackson sign a whopping 9-picture contract which will undoubtedly see him have roles in every upcoming Marvel film for the next few years. We also know that Scarlett Johansson has a multi-picture deal and will likely have an appearance in the Avengers film after her Black Widow makes her debut next summer in Iron Man 2.

Roth was then asked for more detail on whether his talks with Marvel were for future Hulk installments and/or for a role in Avengers, and he responded only by saying, “It could be anything.”

Well, he’s sure keeping in tune with his co-star from The Incredible Hulk, Edward Norton, who’s been tight-lipped about his future with Marvel as well. No confirmations or denials from either which makes me hopeful to see them both return.

Could the Abomination be one of the villains to appear in The Avengers? Or could the talks just be for a future Hulk movie? If Tim Roth were in recent discussions with Marvel, the timing’s a little weird to talk about The Incredible Hulk 2 with all of focus being spent on the many confirmed films currently in development, and since we know it won’t happen till after The Avengers (if it happens at all).

Roth is a talented actor and he played his role perfectly in The Incredible Hulk, helping make it the solid film it was. If he is to come back for more, the character will probably differ from the comics so, like the Hulk, he could transform back to his alter ego, Emil Blonsky.

There’s a ton of questions surrounding the villain of the Avengers team-up film, let alone the roster of heroes which has still yet to be confirmed. Here’s hoping to see Hulk be a part of that.

Where do you think Roth could appear next and are you excited to see him back or is this news just an Abomination?

The Avengers is scheduled for a May 4, 2012 release.

  1. I’m just glad the world isn’t ending until after that movie comes out… :-D

  2. @Michael

    Please STOP YELLING.

    Can’t wait for this movie. It will be a nice way for the Earth to go out, right Ken?

  3. Definitely, too bad Hulk 2 and the other sequels will never be made, oh well, lol.

  4. I think there should be a commenting rule against about comments in all caps lock.

  5. did anyone see the animated avengers movie?

    I thought that was brilliantly written and was a very entertaining movie. They could do a story similar to that, however Im not really a fan of hydra and would prefer to see ultron… perhaps manufactured in part by red skull and justin hammer (with hank prym) with abomination as their enforcer…good way to unite all the movies

  6. Perhaps Marvel should postpone the Avengers movie until 2015. That way they can squeeze in a hulk sequel and a third Iron Man movie around 2012 and/0r 2013

  7. No i think postponing it any longer would be a waste of momentum and excitement. if there are too many sequels, too many wasted storylines, then the Avengers’ll end up being just another sequel.

  8. Air Force One is right. Remember Zak Penn claims that the Avengers movie will suck. Perhaps the film needs more time to develop properly. Meanwhile Iron Man can finish it’s trilogy while a Hulk sequel can start right after Louis Letterier finishes Clash of the Titans.

  9. sorry about the text being all in caps lock, won’t happen again. a movie about super powered beings & superhero’s like the hulk should not be fighting ordinary humans. the batman movie had batman fighting joker which makes sense. superhero/supervillian. the last hulk movie finally got it right but the hulk is still a very boring movie for me. even the fantastic four was more entertaining than boring hulk,

  10. Id say delaying The Avengers movie would do more harm than good. To me if they finished the Iron Man trilogy and make a Hulk sequel i think would water down Avengers movie. Already people are sayin Avengers will suck for dumbest reasons. Avengers already been hold back a year so they can make good on it. If the movie displeases those who trash it now, they can have the sequels to look back on afterwards.

  11. Holy crap? Cool. I did like Roth in the last Hulk movie.

  12. It was just on HBO-HD the other day, pretty good movie. Still think Hulk should have torn his head off at the end there though… lol. But then I guess he wouldn’t be in Avengers if this is true…

  13. lol, Ken J.

    That should of been an alternate ending/deleted scenes. However, it should of continued with Hulk then eating said head…

  14. Or crapping down his neck, hahaha.

  15. Ooh, I know, ripping his head off, then crapping down his neck while eating the head, hahaha, man, that is just too much…

  16. since abomonination didnt die in the movie i would hope they bring him back in the avengers alogn with redskull teaming up with Loki would be a pritty amazing Supervillain team up for the movie
