Report: Russo Brothers directing ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Part 1 and Part 2

Infinity War.

For months it has been speculated, thought, and everything but confirmed that the Russo Brothers would take the Avengers Reins from Joss Whedon following Age of Ultron. What was rumored seems poised to come to pass.


Big news coming out of Marvel Studios. Badass Digest reports that Anthony and Joe Russo have just closed their deal to direct Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2. They’re about to go into production on Captain America: Civil War and will do back to back Avengers films after that. The latter set of films are scheduled for release in May 2018 and May 2019, as the handy image above show.

But where does that leave Spider-Man and Ghostbusters, two properties the Russos have also been mentioned for? We’ll discuss those, and the Avengers Infinity War directors below.

Badass Digest broke the Avengers Infinity War directors news. They said to expect an announcement soon and have a very good track record when it comes to superhero scoops.

We’d heard the Russos were clamoring to do Avengers 3 and 4 after Civil War and that Marvel loved the idea. In fact, everyone was pretty much certain that they would take over, especially since Joss Whedon is done with directingAvengers movies after Age of Ultron.

If Whedon is moving on to Greener (or perhaps more individually creative) pastures, I’m cool with the Russo Brothers taking charge of Marvel’s flagship franchise.
