According to Vulture the search is under-way for a director to take the reins of Captain America 2 (looks like Joe Johnston isn’t returning then?) and they’ve narrowed the list down from 10 to 3 potentials.
Here’s the rundown:
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?”
Apparently a decision is expected by mid-April, so we shouldn’t have too long to wait to see who lands the gig. I don’t see why Joe Johnston can’t return as he did a fine job, but we must remind ourselves that this is Marvel and to them directors are easily replaceable (see the drama behind finding a director for Thor 2).
Who do you want to see direct the Captain America sequel?
