AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Nabs Russo Bros To Direct
We’re five years away from seeing how the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will play out once the second phases completes with Avengers: Age Of Ultron in May, but the best part of it all may come as a delight to fans who enjoyed the stellar reign of last year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The word from Badass Digest (via Slashfilm) has it that filmmakers, brothers Anthony and Joe Russo will take the back-to-back approach helming the remaining two-part finale, Avengers: Infinity War, which are set to release between 2018 and 2019 in the month of May.
The news comes as the Russos are about to lay claim the Spring production of Captain America: Civil War for its release on May 6, 2016 whose screenwriters, Captain America trilogy and Thor: The Dark World scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are in talks to provide the script. The directors have also been attached for other franchises, including the current efforts between Sony and Marvel for a Spider-Man reboot on top of a possible stint in the realm of Ghostbusters for actors Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt, and from the looks of things, it doesn’t sound like too much. If anything, it just gives moviegoers two more reasons to go to the movies. And for what it’s worth, you may call them Anthony and Joe.
Chris Evans is expected to reprise the role of Captain America for all of his remaining films within the MCU after Age Of Ultron releases on May 1, while Civil War will also join him with appearances by Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., returning cast members Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson and introducing Daniel Bruhl as the villain.
