When the Avengers movie arrives, don’t be surprised to see that a lot of the film is seen from Captain America’s perspective.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Joss Whedon explained the reasoning.

“I set out with a very simple problem: There is no reason for these people to be in the same movie. So that’s what my movie has to be about,” Whedon said. “So much of [The Avengers] story 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. He’s the guy that feels that sense of loss.”

“[The Avengers] is very much about people who are alone – because I’m writing it,” he joked, adding, “[Captain America] is kind of the ultimate loner in that way. There is an anachronism to him, and Chris and I have always tried to make it, without making it goofy or too obvious, always tried to make him that same grounded ’40s Steve Rogers he was in the other movie.”

The Avengers arrives May 04, 2012.

Seek shelter and cover head. Do not taunt the Robot Overlord.


  1. It’s very logical. I’ve always seen the Avengers as Captain Americas team book. Even most of the 70’s and 80’s stories seem to revolve about him or at least make him a big part of it. He was the glue that held them together. The New Avengers even seemed to perk up when Bucky Cap rejoined them…


  2. It’s telling that Captain America is considered a founding member even though he didn’t show up until issue #4. And he’s always been my second favorite Avenger (after The Beast) (Who is also my favorite X-Man).
