" We reported a few days ago that Joss Whedon is in final talks to direct the long-awaited superhero ensemble film The Avengers and now it seems he might be scripting another upcoming Marvel film. Pajiba is reporting that Whedon will also be doing a script polish on Captain America: The First Avenger.
Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the script for the film, which is being directed by Joe Johnston. It wasn't quite clear what the extent of Whedon's potential script polish could be, but it was also said that Whedon was polishing Zak Penn's script for The Avengers as well.
