Penn talks Avengers

Avengers Writer/director Zak Penn has been given the mighty task of writing the upcoming AVENGERS feature that'll see all of Marvel's major superheroes that they have or hope to adapt into successful film franchises - Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Ant-Man - unite for one epic adventure. He hasn't said much about the film because, well, there's not much to say seeing as how it's just about three years away. Sci Fi Wire recently cornered him, however, and he gave a little bit of just how they plan on bringing everyone together. He says: "They're doing Captain American and Thor first, and then Avengers is coming out. They want to see that they're all connected, not like the Fantastic Four can't come into the X-Men world, like I was told. I'm taking a meeting next week with the Thor and Captain America people, and we are all going to get together, and I will see what is going to happen. I'll see where they are leaving the characters; it's pretty complicated&hellipl;There's a board that is tracking what is happening. [We'll see] how this movie overlaps in that movie…Marvel is autonomous now. It is night and day: Everyone has read every comic. They know how to make a cool movie." They certainly do but can they bring all these cool movies together to make one incredibly cool movie? We'll find out in a few years. Read more about what he had to say over HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Captain America didn't join The Avengers until issue #4 of the original comic.
