Sunday Trending Topics: The Avengers And Prometheus Alien Mysteries

It seems to be the year for alien mysteries. Who are the aliens in The Avengers? Are the Aliens in Prometheus? It’s been a lot of fun speculating on these matters over the past few months, and every new tidbit scrounged up from the far corners of the internet spurs a new round of debate.  With The Avengers out in May, and Prometheus out in June, we should know the answer to both mysteries soon.
