The Russo brothers will apparently pick up where Joss Whedon leaves off.
The dynamic sibling combo of Joe and Anthony Russo — best known as the directors from ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ — have signed on to direct the upcoming epic films ‘The Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2’ from Marvel.
According to several media reports, the Russo’s will take over the franchise from Joss Whedon, who has directed ‘The Avengers’ and the upcoming ‘The Avengers: Age of Ultron’, which opens on May 1.
The Russos are also directing the third ‘Captain America’ film titled ‘Civil War’, which is expected to play heavily into the future ‘Avengers’ films as well.
‘The Avengers: Infinity War’ parts 1 and 2 are expected to film as one continuous shoot next year with everybody from the Marvel universe expected to appear in the epic adventure. The Avengers: Infinity War part one is expected to be released on May 4, 2018 with part two expected on May 3, 2019.
No writers have been signed onto the project, but Russo brother favorites Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are the leading candidates to pen the scripts after they already worked on ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ and ‘Captain America: Civil War’.
