Avengers Told From Captain’s Perspective

Filmmaker Joss Whedon tells Entertainment Weekly that much of this Summer’s “The Avengers” from Marvel Studios will be told from the perspective of Steve Rogers (aka. Captain America).

Whedon says the main issue when he started writing this superhero team-up project was that “there is no reason for these people to be in the same movie. So that’s what my movie has to be about.”

As a result “so much of the movie takes place from Steve Rogers’ perspective, since he’s the guy who just woke up and sees this weird ass world. Everyone else has been living in it.”

This matches comments from Evans to GQ.com a few weeks back where he calls his character “a straight- shooter. He’s probably pretty boring as far as a character goes, but I feel like he grounds things. When you have these giant personalities and egos, there needs to be someone who brings them back down and reminds that this is a team, not the individual show.”
