I have faith in Marvel since so far they've continually knocked it out of the park... but this was definitely a curveball. I love community but I don't see how working on that equates to them directing Captain America. Needless to say I'm not worried since its in the capable hands of MS, but it does raise my eyebrows a little.

Feige must have confidence in them after their pitch I guess and he's had a pretty good track record so far so...

I'm pretty much in the "Buh wha' huh?" boat with everyone else regarding the Russo bros. And I love Community and Arrested Development as much as my first born. Seriously. But... yeah. I don't really know what the hell Feige was thinking.

Although if this means Alison Brie has a shot playing Sharon Carter and Donald Glover as Sam Wilson, then I'm in.... I think.

All I have to say about the choice is

I thought they Marvel would get more experienced directors for their movies. It seems like they're still going too small if I have say anything about it right now.

Alan Taylor for Thor, Russo Brothers for Cap. Getting TV directors to direct movies is what screwed over the Brosnan Bond movies in the 90s, so I'm weary about having tv directors with little big film experience to direct. At least Whedon directed a Sci-Fi movie before The Avengers.

They must have had a damn good pitch and I hope Marvel knows what they're doing.

While Marvel's previous choices haven't been expected, they made so much sense that I always felt comfortable. This is not only unexpected, but I'm struggling to see how the choice could make any kind of sense. I'm hoping they put together a really insane pitch. I'm also hoping Marvel releases something to assuage our collective concerns.

My only comfort is that there are a lot of things in place artistically that we already know will work, like Chris as Steve.

I never heard of them. This choice is kinda strange. Let's hope that the run of luck lasts for Marvel. Feige makes usually unusal decisions and they worked so far. But this here makes me wonder.

The one thing that the Russos have going for them, despite their work on You, Me and Dupree (ew!), is that they've worked on projects that rely on non-linear storytelling and timelines and whatnot. Happy Endings, Arrested Development and Community are the tv shows I'm thinking about. We *might* get a very interesting Cap 2 movie out of this, particularly if it's going to be flashback heavy. Their projects also rely on strong characters and balancing ensemble casts. And I was massively entertained during Community's paintball episodes. They were awesome. Witty action sequences too. So there are those points, I guess. Just trying to make a little sense about where Feige's going with this.

I definitely don't mind finding the humor in Captain America, but I don't want it to dissolve into slapstick and farce. But if they can capture a very unique vision of Cap and do so successfully, this might be Feige's greatest hat trick of all.

I have way less reservations about Alan Taylor on Thor 2 than I do the Russos.

As far as tone is concerned I wouldn't worry too much since at the end of the day it has to fit in the greater MCU. My concern is with them having the ability to give us something really exciting cinematically.

In Alan Taylor's defense, Game of Thrones is an epic fantasy series; that, I think, gives him a much bigger leg up for Thor on handling the more fantastical/mythical elements of Thor's world and the various realms.
Granted, it is TV, but it's HBO and has a much more cinematic feel to it(obviously) than Community, which also gives him a much bigger leg up than the community people, imho.

Even with Serenity on his resume ,
Joss Whedon was widely considered by both fans and media to be a TV director and he did okay .
Not worried about this choice.

I agree on Taylor for Thor 2. And we thought that was a strange choice. But GoT has much more parallels to Thor than everything what the Russo brothers did to CA. That puts the trust on Marvel to the test.

But again his skillset included a great ability in directing and writing ensemble pieces which was a good one to have going in to Avengers.

You would think with the amount of money these movies generate they would want a more proven director. Iron Man nailed it with black, but this is just not sounding good, at all.

I think you mean Ant-Man if you're referring to Wright

I'm gonna reserve my opinion. I'm not gonna call it a bad choice until I see a trailer or at least here more about it, but it is a confusing choice.

I don't know whether to interpret this as potential genius, or Marvel being cheap and micromanaging. I'm starting a to get the feeling that limiting the potential of these movies will bite them in the ass if it's the latter.

in the wake of pulling off the uber-ambitious Avengers..maybe this is their idea of 'taking a chance' in the wake of that..(though it sounds incredibly stupid to do that with your director) I'd rather them go that route with the stories they choose to adapt to the screen.

Only time will tell. Like I've said before, I hope they add successful CBM-MCU veterans to their crew to assist them and soak up their knowledge on what the MCU world is all about(as well as CBMs in general)

I hope they're closet uber/MarvelZombie/fanboy/geeks and really get Cap and the MCU.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I wouldn't mind reading a fresh article, like now lol, about that which would maybe take some of the oddness out of the choice.

Joe Russo directed the Community episodes A Fistful of Paintballs and For a Few Paintballs More. I'm not worried.
