Anthony and Joe Russo, the directors of the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, say they will work with Marvel again in “any capacity”.
After directing Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame pretty much back to back, one might think that the Russos have had enough of Marvel. However, the two directors want to come back for more, expressing their love for the company.
Speaking to Business Insider (via ComicBook.com) in a recent interview, Joe Russo said: “We love Marvel, we’ve had an incredible experience with them. It’s why we’ve made four movies in six years with them. They’re like family to us. I think they do a great job of separating ‘church and state,’ where we’re focused on the projects we’re focused on, and someone else will focus on those other projects. We’d work with them in any capacity moving forward, and we value as much as anything in our work life the quality of the people we’re around and quality of the life that we have when we’re working with those people, and that’s A++ when you’re working with Marvel.”
Well, it sounds like we can look forward to plenty more Marvel films directed by the Russo brothers, especially considering the monstrous success of the movies they have directed so far — something that is unlikely to change with Avengers: Endgame.
