Endgame Directors Reveal Their Next Movie Away From Marvel

Joe and Anthony Russo burst onto the comic book movie scene after directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a standout 2014 Phase 2 film and one of the franchise’s most beloved. The dynamic duo then received the multi-billion dollar car key from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and direct Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity Warand Avengers: Endgame.

All four films made at Marvel Studios were critical and box office successes; End of Game briefly held the record for the highest-grossing worldwide release of all time.

After the aforementioned fourth avengers movie, the Russos focused on other projects. Their independent film studio, AGBO, has produced seven films since 2018. The Russos directed Cherry with Tom Holland and The gray man (out July 15 on Netflix) starring Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling.

Fans want to know if the Russos will ever return to the MCU, but for now, audiences will have to be excited about other non-Marvel projects from the directing duo.

The Russo Bros. announced their latest project. According ColliderJow and Anthony Russo direct electrical conditionwho “follows a runaway teenage girl and her robot on a journey through an alternate reality in 1997 USA.”

Anthony Russo added during the interview that they are “working with old friends” on electrical condition. This interview took place during the press for The gray mana movie that stars old friend and Marvel superstar Chris Evans.

The project is written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (who previously worked on Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame) and is based on Simon Stålenhag’s 2018 graphic novel of the same title.

electrical condition begins filming in October in Atlanta, GA.

Will the Russos return for Avengers 5?

Two elephants in the room sit between fans and Marvel Studios. First, when avengers 5 will be announced, and two, if the Russo Brothers will return to direct it.

After Scarlett Johansson’s legal battle with Disney, it’s been reported that the Russo Brothers are at an impasse in negotiations to direct another MCU movie. Additionally, Joe Russo doubled down on the idea of ​​producing an original IP, rather than another comic book movie:

“I think we’re going to start to come back to the original IP…I think that’s a great opportunity…I think the original IP will start to emerge in this market as the companies will become more pedantic and factory-like with the execution of their current intellectual property. I just think people are going to be thirsty for new ideas.

Does that mean there’s a zero percent chance they’ll ever return to Marvel? Of course not, but it calls into question the desire they really have to embark on another avengers film. Any MCU movie is a harrowing and difficult process, but a avengers the film is on an entirely different level considering the lineup, set design, scale, and post-production work.

Regarding who one of “Old friends” could be, electrical condition must have an actress to play a teenage girl. It doesn’t seem to suit those they’ve worked with before at Marvel, but a robot might need some voiceover work. Maybe Robert Downey Jr. would make a good robot. If a robot needed a female voice, Scarlett Johansson already has the experience of her role in 2013 His.

It will be interesting to see what “Old friends” appear in the Russo Bros.’ latest directing project, but the wait continues to see if they will ever return to Marvel Studios.

All of the Russo Brothers’ MCU movies are now streaming on Disney+.
