The following article contains NO spoilers for Avengers Endgame
After four movies and bringing the Infinity Sagato a conclusion, directing siblings Anthony and Joe Russo have no plans to take on another Marvel project. In an interview with Games Radar, the Russos confirmed their time with Marvel is at an end.
“It’s our Endgame, at least for now. We don’t have any plans for now to make any more Marvel movies. It certainly may come up in the future at some point. We have a wonderful working relationship with [Marvel Studios] and a great passion for what they’re doing.”
The Brothers Russo joined the MCU for Captain America The Winter Soldier (one of the best second instalments of all Marvel's franchises) and stayed on for what turned out to be an audition for The Avengers with Civil War. Taking over from Joss Whedon as the architects of The Avengers, the Russos have set the bar ridiculously high for the future of the MCU. Not ones to rest for too long, the Russo brothers already have their next directorial project lined up, which will reunite them with one of their Infinity War stars.
“We’re going to shift gears and direct a much smaller movie this summer with Tom Holland called Cherry, which is loosely based on a real story about a veteran of the Iraq War, who suffers from PTSD… gets a heroin addiction and ends up robbing banks to sustain that addiction.”
That's not the only Avenger they'll be reuniting with, Chris Hemsworth stars in the Joe Russo penned action drama Dhaka, and the Chadwick Boseman led thriller 21 Bridges is produced by, you guessed it the Russo Brothers. Given the wealth of praise (and box office success) of their four entries in the MCU, they'll be welcomed back any time they want to, but for now, Endgame serves as the filmmaker's swan song from the franchise.
Avengers Endgame is out now.
