Joss Whedon sure does enjoy being an open book about his upcoming Marvel endeavors, which is greatly appreciated by all of us fans. Just the other day, he gave us a little insight as to what we might expect from THE AVENGERS.

Now, he's letting us in on just what his contributions to CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER were. Check out the jump to see what he had to say!

“I just got to make some character connections. The structure of the thing was really tight and I loved it, but there were a couple of opportunities to find his voice a little bit — and some of the other characters — and make the connections so that you understood exactly why he wanted to be who he wanted to be. And progressing through the script to flesh it out a little bit...It’s fun in this case, because, A, they’ll actually use the things I wrote, which is rare; and, B, it’s a fun puzzle to go in and say, ‘Okay, this is what works, this is what needs to be connected, and here are some key moments.’ Then the third thing is that it takes place in the ’40s, so I got to write ’40s dialogue, and that’s never not fun!”

Whedon is a phenomenal comic writer, so his abilities being added to the script of CAPTAIN AMERICA is greatly appreciated. From what he claims, the film has more potential than it ever has. Way to go, Joss, you win.
