'Community's' Russo Brothers to Bring Their Paintball Experience to Directing 'Captain America 2'

With The Avengers making more money in a few weeks than the net worth of most small countries, its only natural that Marvel and Disney are preparing to do a bunch more movies about the band of sassy superheroes. One of the next movies will be Captain America 2, and they're looking to an unexpected duo to direct it: Anthony and Joe Russo, better known for their work on Community and Happy Endings than for their aptitude with superhero blockbusters.

But man, how awesome is that? The studio had a lot of luck going with Joss Whedon, another unorthodox choice, with The Avengers, so it looks like they're continuing to look in other genres with the upcoming films. And while no, the Russo brothers haven't directed a blockbuster action movie before, Joe Russo did direct "A Fistful of Paintballs" and "For a Few Paintballs More," which is pretty much the same thing, right?
