The Shortlist Of Directors For Captain America 2 Is Narrowing – Who Remains?

Kevin Feige, president of production at Marvel Studios, apparently auditions potential directors for their projects by getting in a room and trying to “vibe” with them, at least in part.

Which is to say, if he doesn’t get on with a potential director, they won’t get the gig. Seems eminently reasonable to me, as long as its not the only criteria in play.

And I guess it isn’t – most Marvel movies have been directed by well-liked directors, or at least those with interesting bodies of work. Indeed, only Louis Leterrier seems to let the side down too drastically.

According to Vulture, this meet-and-greet process has seen Feige whittle the list of potential Captain America 2 directors down to just three parties:

  • F. Gary Gray, director of Friday, Set it Off and the American Italian Job.
  • George Nolfi, screenwriter on Ocean’s Twelve and The Bourne Ultimatum and writer-director of The Adjustment Bureau
  • The Russo Brothers, previously culpable for Welcome to Collinwood and You, Me & Dupree, and regular TV directors, including work on Community and Happy Endings

Apparently, all of these candidates will be back in a  room with Feige next month, hoping to get their good vibes on and make it through that final cut.

For my part, I’ll be sending out good vibes for Nolfi. He’d be my pick…

Though, as Patty Jenkins would tell you, there’s getting the job and then there’s keeping the job.

Next out of the gate for Feige is The Avengers. I’m not a big fan of all of the Marvel Studios movies so far, but I think the batting average is actually quite remarkably high. Seems like Feige’s instincts have served him very well so far.
