Joss Whedon doesn't give any credit at all to Zak Penn.
Apparently he didn't filmed a single word from that original screenplay.
Yeah, when you look at Penn's other movies, there's no hint of the kind of wit or complex storytelling that we see in Avengers. Clearly that had to be all Joss.
There's a WGA arbitration process that works pretty well in situations like this. Penn could have filed and would have received more credit if it were determined that the work entitled him to it.

In fact it's possible that his story credit is itself the result of such an arbitration.
