The Kidd here...
It looks as if Marvel Studios has made its choice, and it's the Russo brothers, Anthony and Joe, who are best known for their film work helming YOU, ME & DUPREE and as the executive producers and directors of NBC's COMMUNITY.
The Hollywood Reporter says the Russos outlasted such competition for the gig as George Nolfi and F. Gary Gray, and it sounds like Joe Johnston was never in the discussion to return to the director's chair after his strong effort with the first film.
Hmmm... quite the interesting choice, but then again, when hasn't Marvel made some different choices when it comes to who's directing their films?
