Get ready for the new daily show

Captain America 2 to be directed by… who?!

June 8th, 2012 by Marc 1 Comment

We had some news on Iron Man 3 earlier (every day seems to have a new Iron Man story) but now it’s news on Captain America 2

Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of You, Me & Dupree (!) have apparently entered negotiations to direct the sequel. The brothers also work on TV shows Community and Happy Endings.
You’ll forgive us if we’re still not convinced, however we will happily ‘wait and see’.
Apparently the brothers have been favoured by Marvel over George Nolfi, director of The Adjustment Bureau and F Gary Gray who directed The Italian Job, both of whom on first glance would appear better suited, but we’re sure Marvel see something we’re missing. Aren’t we?

Captain America 2 comes out  on  April 4th 2014.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
