While Captain America: The First Avenger was directed by Joe Johnston and received positive reviews, Vulture is reporting that Marvel Studios is going with a new director(s) for the sequel:
They say: “Vulture hears that the search is narrowing for someone to helm the patriotic hero’s own personal sequel. Insiders tell us that a field of ten directors has been whittled to just three for the follow-up to last summer’s hit: George Nolfi, the writer-director of The Adjustment Bureau; F. Gary Gray, best known for directing The Italian Job; and, naturally … Community’s Anthony and Joseph Russo?”
Vulture adds that Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige hit it off with the Russos, who have also directed You, Me and Dupree and Welcome to Collinwood.
A decision on the director(s) should be made by mid-April
THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!
