'Avengers: Infinity War': Russo Brothers Snag Director Roles For Parts 1 & 2 [VIDEO]
Marvel's The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 will keep the Russo brothers employed for quite some time.
Joe and Anthony Russo are currently focused on getting Captain America: Civil War in front of the camera, but Badass Digest reports that the directing duo have also closed a deal to helm the next major Avengers venture.
An official announcement from the comic book studio has yet to materialize, but it looks like the Russo siblings will step up to fill Joss Whedon's sizable shoes for the two-part 2018 and 2019 releases. After helming Captain America and the stellar Captain America: Civil War, Joe and Anthony seem a wise choice from the Marvel execs.
As for Whedon, he detailed the reasons for his Marvel future while speaking with Screen Rant.
"I would never rule anything out, because I like working here. By the same token, the biggest thing for me is that I need to do something that I create myself. It's been way too long since I created a universe," Whedon said, according to Screen Rant. "The last thing I did before The Avengers was [directing an episode of] Glee, and in between I did Much Ado About Nothing. So I haven't created my own universe for over five years. That feels wrong."
