Director Shortlist for CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 Shortened

The shortlist of potential directors for Marvel Studios' Captain America: The First Avenger followup has been narrowed, with F. Gary Gray no longer in the running. Hit the jump & check it out!



Marvel Studios announced last week that a sequel to their Joe Johnston-directed Captain America: The First Avenger flick had been given a 2014 release date. And while they've "declined to comment" on the sequel's potential director(s), Deadline has provided an update via their ever-reliable "insiders".

The list includes Community‘s Joe & Anthony Russo and The Adjustment Bureau helmer George Nolfi, but I’m told Marvel is talking to others for a film that Disney just dated that film for April 4, 2014, with a storyline that picks up after the upcoming Joss Whedon-directed The Avengers. F. Gary Gray had been on that short list, but I’m hearing that he has withdrawn from consideration and is in hot and heavy negotiations to direct the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton for New Line Cinema.




Described as a political thriller, Marvel Studios’ sequel to the blockbuster “Captain America: The First Avenger” will pick-up where the highly anticipated film “Marvel’s The Avengers” (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) continues his affiliation with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world. Anthony & Joe Russo (“Community,” “You, Me and Dupree”) takes over directorial duties from Joe Johnston, who helmed the first film. And “Captain America 2” hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
