Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, one of this year's highest-grossing films will direct the Season 6 premiere of COMMUNITY, which will be on Yahoo!.
"We're doing the first episode back, the first episode with Yahoo," Joe Russo told EW.com. "There might be a little rebranding and a little repiloting going on."
They are no strangers to COMMUNITY, having directed 33 episodes (between the two of them) while it was on NBC.
They also told EW about the hardships that came with directing the upcoming CAPTAIN AMERICA 3.
"You have to work really hard to deliver something different, and exciting and challenging," Joe Russo said to EW. "That's what we're in the middle of on 'Cap 3′ right now, pushing really hard to make sure that what we deliver is something that's gonna be different from 'Captain America: the Winter Soldier.'"
Russo said that Cap 3 will be more similar to Winter Soldier than Winter Soldier was to First Avenger.
"We're more grounded in the world of Winter Soldier than Winter Soldier was grounded in First Avenger," he said. "The difference between First Avenger and Winter Soldier is that 70 years had elapsed between the two movies. Cap was waking up in a world that was a million miles away from the one he came from. That gave us a narrative motivation to push the he tonal and stylistic content of the world forward."
"We don't have that same time elapsed here. It's the world Cap woke up in still, even though it's several years later and some other significant events have happened. At the same time, we are pushing Cap to a place he hasn't been before."
Season 6 of COMMUNITY premieres on Yahoo! later this year, and the third CAPTAIN AMERICA installment is set for a May 6, 2016 release
