One of the big questions going into this amalgamation of Marvel superheroes was if The Avengers was going to be told through one character's point of view or if we would just sit back and watch a bunch of superheroes battle Loki and Red Skull.
In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, director Joss Whedon 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' (Captain America) perspective, since he's the guy who just woke up and sees this weird ass world. Everyone else has been living in it."
This certainly makes sense given the teaser clip at the end of The First Avenger: Captain America. In that sequence, Rogers wakes up in what is originally thought to be a recovery room in New York City with a baseball game from 1941 playing on the radio. It turns out to be a room built within a large high rise. Cap breaks free and runs through the streets before being surrounded by S.H.I.E.L..D. agents in Times Square. Nick Fury then informs him that he's been asleep for almost 70 years. The scene ends with Fury asking him if he'll be all right and Rogers looking regretfully at his surroundings and saying, "I had a date."
