Chris Evans has praised The Avengers director Joss Whedon, and insists that the Marvel Comics franchise is definitely in the right hands.

Evans portrays the lead character in this month's latest superhero epic Captain America: The First Avenger, and will reprise that role in next year's team-up film opposite the likes of Robert Downey Jr and Samuel L. Jackson.

"He's unbelievable," Evans told MTV News regarding Whedon. "He lives in the world of comic books so he has in his head an amazing story already mapped out.

"If something isn't working for you as an actor within the words, he can walk away for ten minutes and come back with seven options that are all fantastic and clever and witty and it's got a pace and a banter. He's a great guy to be quarterbacking this thing."

Evans also commented on Captain America's role in The Avengers, which sees the character adjusting to life in the modern-day world.

"The guy has to accept the fact that everyone he knew and loved is gone," he revealed. "Not only is he alone, all his friends are gone, the world has changed too much."

"It's him trying to come to terms with the way things are."

Joe Johnston, who directed Captain America: The First Avenger, recently said that he would be interested in staying on for the film's potential sequel.

Captain America: The First Avenger is released on July 22 in the US and on July 29 in the UK, followed by The Avengers on May 4, 2012.
