While it may seem odd to have a pair of sitcom directors in the mix for a big-budget adventure, an insider reveals the Russo brothers made a good first impression with Marvel Studios' president of production, Kevin Feige.
It is said that meetings are scheduled with all of the finalists early next month, and that a decision could be made as early as mid-April. Actor Neal McDonough, who played Dum Dum Dugan in Captain America: The First Avenger, said back in January that Captain America 2 will likely begin shooting at the end of this year, after Thor 2 wraps principal photography.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes to theaters April 4th, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Robert Redford, Frank Grillo. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo.
