The latest Avengers clip definitely shows off that Joss Whedon flair, featuring a hilariously awkward exchange between Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Captain America (Chris Evans).

It seems Agent Coulson has more than just a deep appreciation for Cap's service to the country, and accidentally comes off as a hilariously creepy fanboy in his first official meeting with the newly defrosted Steve Rogers.

This scene definitely has Whedon's comedic fingerprints all over it, and it seems Coulson is a stand-in for the average Joe, caught up in this awesome, superhero world.

The clip, attached below, comes via an interview segment with Gregg on PBS.
