Earth's Mightiest recently asked CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER director Joe Johnston about how his film will tie in with other movies in the Marvel universe. His answer should greatly please Marvel fans:
"There are links between all the MARVEL films, mostly ones that only the fans will pick up on. We have several subtle references to certain elements in THOR, but since CAPTAIN AMERICA is a period picture taking place in the 40's, there are fewer opportunities for contemporary links to the rest of the MARVEL universe. We can, however, create events in our story that will be paid off in AVENGERS and other MARVEL pictures."
