Joe Johnston on How Captain America Will Tie In To The Other Marvel Films
We know you have a lot of questions about Marvel’s upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger. Top of the list probably isn’t ‘how does this film tie into the other Marvel films?’ and yet that’s the question that is being answered for now. Director Joe Johnston is talking about the tie-in moments, and the answer might actually be refreshing.
Director Joe Johnston told CBR:
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.
