    I'd go Nolfi, purely because I found Adjustment Bureau to be a great little movie... It'll probably be the Community guys though.

    Why isn't Johnston coming back? I hope Marvel didn't give him the Kenneth Branagh treatment.

    What Kenneth Branagh treatment? The man left of his own accord and on good terms.

    As for the new guy, I trust MS to make the decision without much input from me. They've done well so far.

    From this list, I would go with George Nolfi.

    Gary Gray doesn't fill me with confidence. None of them really make me feel like "wow, I need to see what they do with this". I guess I'll need to know their pitch.

    I think Nolfi gives me the most confidence given his filmography is not very extensive, and he was the writer on The Bourne Ultimatum. I think that makes him the favorite pick for me. His directing career is young, so he doesn't have the track record for mediocre films that F. Gary Gray has.

    I say Nolfi, although the russo's make me very curious to see that they would do.

    Odd picks there, no doubt.
    Trying to figure out what any of them have in common, or what particular skill-set Marvel was looking for.....if it's F. Gary Gray, could it be an urban angle, and they're looking to bring Falcon in as a major character? Or, here's a thought....Nolfi apparently has a working relationship with Matt Damon (Bourne Ultimatum, Adjustment Bureau, Ocean's Twelve); could Marvel be looking for entree with Damon to play....say....Winter Soldier...???

    Spent some time looking at their respective IMDB pages and they seem a little underwhelming, don't they? Gray seems like a crime movie guy, which would be cool if this was Punisher or something but seems a little weird for Cap. And I liked the Adjustment Bureau but that's that guy's only credit.

    Too early to tell, I guess. I wish i could see the other 7 names on that list tho.

    Gray did do the Italian Job remake but also . . . Be Cool :( .

    Gray at least has experience doing studio films and has worked with bigger budgets and actors.

    I think right now I'd give the Russo duo a try since the others on the list are little lackluster and they seem to have a good understanding of the comic book world.

    So, just like that Johnston is out? Doesn't really surprise me at all with Marvel Studios. Unless they are giving him that Winter Solider solo...

    I agree with this.

    None of these choices really inspire me with confidence. And neither does the comment "He wants to see if he gets along with them if they are working with each other for 2 years".

    Get along = tell them what to do. What Marvel has done is amazing, but i think the execs and producers need to take a step back and let a director create his own vision and make the film he wants.

    I'd like for George Nolfi to get it because I liked The Adjustment Bureau.

    Branagh is still producing, from my understanding and seeing him listed on IMDB..

    As far as these director choices...If I HAD to pick...I guess Nolfi, but frankly, I wouldn't choose any one of them (especially not the community guys)

    Can't say I'm too excited about these choices. Certainly hope someone else jumps into the fray.
