Joss Whedon Says Which Superhero Will Have the Main POV in THE AVENGERS

I haven't met one person who isn't excited about the upcoming AVENGERS movie. But with so many superheros sharing one screen, you have to wonder...who, if any, will be taking center stage?

I haven’t met one person who isn’t excited about the upcoming AVENGERS movie.  But with so many superheros sharing one screen, you have to wonder…who, if any, will be taking center stage?

According to Joblo, Joss Whedon has said that despite the focus constantly shifting, the main point of view will come from that of Steve Rogers (Captain America)  He explains:

“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.”

And what is a superhero movie if not a story about lonliness?  Whedon says,

“[The Avengers] is very much about people who are alone — because I’m writing it…[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, without making it goofy or too obvious, make him that same grounded ’40s Steve Rogers he was in the other movie.”

If you haven’t realized it, THE AVENGERS hits theaters in less than four months on May 4th, 2012.  In the meantime, check out the most recent trailer below, as well as Kim Jong Il’s “I’m So Ronery” (You know…to celebrate that lonely theme…)
