The upcoming sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger now has its director...well, directors. The brother duo of Joe Russo and Anthony Russo have been tasked with Cap's second solo outing after the character's mega-successful outing in the destructive tour de force that was The Avengers.
The brothers Russo, who only bring a head-scratching resume of work on TV comedies like Community, Happy Endings, and Arrested Development were actually named as candidates for the job a few months ago. However, their chances were seemingly dismissed by speculators, with George Nolfi and F. Gary Gray looking to be the more likely choices among the list.
Nevertheless, the Russos obviously must have something special that they're bringing to the table in regards to the script. The brothers will now replace Joe Johnston as helmer in a film that will likely focus on the unfrozen hero's adjustment to modern times and bring us another one of his famous comic book nemeses.
Captain America 2 is set to toss its shield at theater audiences on April 4, 2014.
