Just last month when Marvel announced ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ there was an additional little nugget of news/rumor tucked into that surprising reveal: Marvel was eyeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ directors Joe and Anthony Russo to helm ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’ That's in addition to their responsibilities directing ‘Civil War.’ As it turns out, the rumors are true, and the Russo brothers are indeed the frontrunners to direct the two-part ‘Infinity War,’ which would also confirm what we've known for some time: Joss Whedon won't be back.
Many a big-name director once cut their teeth on NBC's 'Community,' from the likes of 'Fast and Furious' franchise helmer Justin Lin, to 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' (and sequel!) directors Joe and Anthony Russo. Now, with 'Community' headed into unfamiliar territory for its sixth season on Yahoo Screen, the Russos will return to guide its transition by directing the season 6 premiere.
One of the shows we're looking forward to most is Marvel's new 'Agent Carter' series, based on the character from the 'Captain America' films. At the Marvel TV panel this evening at Comic-Con 2014, the studio revealed that 'Agent Carter' will definitely have some familiar help behind the scenes as 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' directors Joe and Anthony Russo will direct two episodes, while Marvel co-president Louis D'Esposito will handle the pilot.
'Community''s infamous "Six Seasons and a Movie" mantra has proven increasingly accurate with each surprise renewal, and while NBC has yet to formally decide on a sixth, and likely final season for the Greendale gang, new movie rumors suggest 'Fast and Furious' (and former 'Community) director Justin Lin may be eyed to helm a theatrical venture.
We're much closer to seeing 'Captain America 2' (dubbed 'The Winter Soldier') than the anticipation might lead you to believe, and you'll finally get to see what many critics are already suggesting is Marvel's best movie to date come its April 4 premiere. To keep you somewhat satiated and to go along with your vast library of trailers, TV spots and behind-the-scenes footage, Marvel released a massive gallery with more than 60 new photos from 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.'
The mystery has been solved! Not long ago, Marvel Studios set a May 2016 release date for an untitled Marvel movie, which recently became a hot topic as 'Batman vs. Superman' rescheduled to open on the same date. Now, after much speculation, the identity of the mystery Marvel film has been revealed to be 'Captain America 3,' which directors Joe and Anthony Russo are already actively developing.
The highly anticipated 'Captain America 2' (officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'), which, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, is supposed to completely change the public's perception of what a superhero movie is, started screening for press. Now, thanks to social media, the first 'Captain America 2' reviews are trickling in and word is overwhelmingly positive.
Marvel has been hesitant to sign directors who aren't named Joss Whedon to long-term deals, mostly because they like to keep their sequels fluid and evolving. But, they must see something special in 'Captain America 2' directors Joe and Anthony Russo because the comic company has hired the brothers to write and direct 'Captain America 3' before Part 2 has even hit theaters.
Adding to our already hefty bank of 'Captain America 2' photos and footages comes a fresh batch of images from Marvel's ambitious next installment. Why is it ambitious? Not only will the sequel (officially titled 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier') introduce comic book hero The Falcon through actor Anthony Mackie among a slew of new and returning characters, but it's also Marvel's attempt to revamp the superhero genre.
It looks like Disney and Marvel are that much closer to signing a director -- or in this case, directors -- for their planned 'Captain America 2'. So what do 'Community' and 'Captain America' have in common?
