Joss Whedon spoke to Collider about the villains in The Avengers:

I will say only this: It is not the Kree or the Skrulls... Those two aliens are Marvel mainstays and have enormous backstories. They have a big life of their own that just could not be contained in a film where I already had seven movie stars... The Skrulls — they can shape change. That's a whole thing. I've already got Loki. He's got magic. Once you got magic along with your Iron Man and your Black Widow — it's a real juggling act.
