Looking at the Chitauri concept, is that enough to put to rest the "They were originally Skrulls" rumor?

They were never Skrulls, because Skrulls didn't fit the purpose the story needed, and not because of a rights issue. Marvel have stated they have the rights to the Skrull Empire, but Fox has Super-Skrull. Still people are adamant the Chitauri were a last minute replacement.
