‘Captain America 2’ Directing Gig Handed to ‘Community’ Producers

Posted by , on June 6, 2012 at 1:35 pm 

Marvel is certainly wasting no time on filling out their superhero universe, with news yesterday of a possible Black Panther standalone film, alongside production kicking off for Iron Man 3 this week. Following the massive success that is The Avengers are plans for a sequel to last year’s Captain America. The shortlist has been whittled (and whittled) down, with the victors revealed today.

THR is reporting that brothers Anthony and Joe Russo (executive producers on Community, as well as directors of You, Me and Dupree and Welcome to Colinwood) are in final talks to direct Captain America 2. Taking over from Joe Johnston, it’s certainly a left-field choice, but earlier reports indicate that Marvel film spearhead Kevin Feige kicked it off strongly with the duo.

This superhero also certainly has the most comedic, old-school vibe of the group, so they could definitely make for a worthy directing pair. Written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, we know this film will bring Chris Evans into modern day, but not much else has been revealed. So we’ll have to see if they can still continue the same, fun tone in the non-WWII setting.

Captain America 2 hits theaters on April 4th, 2014.

Are you excited for this duo to direct this Marvel film?
