Captain America 2 Offered To Community Directors

The sequel to Captain America: The First Avenger is heating up, with today’s reports, via The Hollywood Reporter, that Community directors Anthony and Joe Russo have been offered the project.

The pair are best known in comedy, with Community perhaps their best-received work to date. Their work on You, Me and Dupree may not have drawn quite the same admiration, but the brothers have evidently been able to impress the Marvel execs sufficiently to land the next instalment in the franchise. They have reportedly beaten The Adjustment Bureau and Bourne Ultimatum writer George Nolfi to the post, and we now eagerly await more news on the project.

The last Captain America film was a fun enough romp, if flawed, but as with anything Marvel, we can’t wait to hear more on this front. Chris Evans will be returning as Cap himself, but other details are obviously thin on the ground at the moment, with the project still very much in its infancy. We do have an official synopsis, though;

The Walt Disney Studios has announced a release date for Marvel Studios' sequel to the blockbuster Captain America: The First Avenger on April 4, 2014. 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.
