As Marvel’s Avengers movie gets closer and closer to release, more details are coming out about the movie. A new bit has come out about how the story of the movie will be told. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, movie writer and director Joss Whedon confirmed that the film would be told from the perspective of Captain America. He said:
“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. 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.”
The move is a bold one. Chris Evans has had a very mixed reaction towards his role as Captain America aka Steve Rogers. The Captain America perspective can be very good if done correctly. Joss Whedon has a talent for getting the most out of his cast, so it would be best to go with a wait and see mentality.
Opening May 4th, The Avengers stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, and Samuel L. Jackson
