'Captain America 2' may be directed by 'Community' helmers Anthony and Joe Russo(Read article summary)
The 'Community' directors have also worked on 'Arrested Development.'
Thanks to The Avengers, a foundation for “Phase 2″ of Marvel’s shared movie universe has been solidified. Next year, the solo superhero films Iron Man 3 and Thor 2 will build off that groundwork, followed by Captain America 2 in 2014 – along with other films that have yet to be officially announced. (Although, Ant-Man and Black Panther are both looking like strong contenders at the time of writing this.)
Production has begin on the Iron Man threequel, while the Thor sequel is slated to being shooting later this year. We previously heard rumblings that the second Captain America movie could likewise start filming before year’s end. Now that the film has secured a director(s), there’s a greater chance of that happening.
Marvel previously settled on a shortlist of directors for the Captain America sequel, including F. Gary Gray (who took a pass, in order to sign on for the N.W.A. biopic) and Adjustment Bureau writer/director George Nolfi. Variety is reporting that the job has instead gone to the left-field candidates who were included on that initial list: filmmaking siblings Anthony and Joe Russo.
