Captain America 2 (2014) Director List Shrinks and Grows At Same Time


1350 A week and a half ago we learned that the list of directors for Captain America 2 was narrowed down to three.

George Nolfi (The Adjustment Bureau), F. Gary Gray (The Italian Job), and Anthony and Joseph Russo (Community) were all said to be contenders, with Joe Johnston notably absent.

Now, Deadline is reporting that F. Gary Gray is no longer part of the consideration, and that Marvel Studios is now looking at others to helm the sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger, in addition to Nolfi and the Russo Brothers.

The "Captain America 2" release date has also been announced to be May 4th, 2014, with the following description revealed as well:

The second installment will pick-up where the highly anticipated Marvel’s The Avengers (May 4, 2012) leaves off, as Steve Rogers continues his affiliation with Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D and struggles to embrace his role in the modern world.
