Don't got a problem with the hiring, but it doesn't make it any less strange. It's been stated previously, but hopefully they are closet Marvelites and have an understanding of the characters, if even in the most basic sense.
That example actually does a good job of furthering my point about Marvel being in control. They may have liked Patty's general ideas, but weren't so fond of them as she started to detail them out. It certainly didn't seem like they split on bad terms, as I recall Marvel having said that they still wanted her to direct a Marvel film in the future.
Point is...if the directors chosen for Cap 2 end up having ideas that aren't in-line with Marvel's, they will most likely be tossed. If they are kept, then we should be confident that Marvel likes their direction...
