Anthony and Joe Russo have been two of Marvel’s greatest contributors in the last two years. The directing duo has helped craft a number of blockbuster successes for the studios, and now that they’ve had their big finale with Avengers: Endgame – it looks like they’ll be moving on from the Marvel Cinematic Universe once Phase 4 begins.
Anthony Russo explained it all in an interview with GamesRadar, saying:
“It’s our Endgame, at least for now. We don’t have any plans for now to make any more Marvel movies.”
Of course, with a working relationship like they have going with Marvel, the two still hint they’ll be open for another eventual return.
“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.”
Interestingly, they’re still collaborating with at least one other major MCU star – Tom Holland – in their next film.
“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.”
It’s exciting to see the Russo Brothers continue their journey through Hollywood – one which should also see them remake the iconic 1982 horror film Poltergeist.
Meanwhile in their latest film Avengers: Endgame…
Adrift in space with no food or water, Tony Stark sends a message to Pepper Potts as his oxygen supply starts to dwindle. Meanwhile, the remaining Avengers — Thor, Black Widow, Captain America and Bruce Banner — must figure out a way to bring back their vanquished allies for an epic showdown with Thanos — the evil demigod who decimated the planet and the universe.
