SUPERHERO blockbuster The Avengers will focus largely from the perspective of Captain America, according to the film’s director Joss Whedon.

The film will also take loneliness as one of its main themes, the filmmaker told Entertainment Weekly.

“So much of the story takes place from Steve Rogers’ perspective, since he’s the guy who just woke up and sees this weird-ass world,” Whedon told Entertainment Weekly. “Everyone else has been living in it. He’s the guy that feels that sense of loss.

“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.”

It has already been revealed that the Captain America sequel, which is currently slated for release sometime in 2014, will be set in the present day, unlike its predecessor which largely unfolded in the ’40s.
