The Russo Brothers have been a staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for some time now. The brothers first entered the world directing Captain America: Winter Soldier before working on its sequel Civil War. The brothers return this week with Avengers: Infinity War and are currently completing work on that films sequel.
With this huge MCU altering event about to kick off fans are beginning to wonder what is next for the brothers. Will they continue to work on future Marvel projects? Or move on to pastures new? Well the pair were recently asked that very question and had this to say in response:
Joe Russo: Not yet. We love Marvel, that amazing experience with them and Disney. We love comic books. We love telling these stories. Obviously, the Fox / Disney mergers are incredibly exciting to us as comic book fans. We’re just trying to get Avengers 4 done and then, you know, we’d love to work with those guys again.
Hopefully that means they will be with the Marvel Universe for many years to come!
