It's been known for months now, but Marvel just announced that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo will be taking over Joss Whedon's Avengers franchise.



It was first reported late last year that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo were in early talks to take over for Joss Whedon in directing the 2018 and 2019 follow-up to this summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it was also reported two weeks ago that the siblings were near closing a deal. Well, Marvel Studios has now confirmed that, after the Russos helm the much-anticipated Captain America: Civil War which starts filming later this month, the duo will return to the director's chair(s) for Avengers: Infinity War – Part One and Part Two. The "Phase 3" event will be shot back-to-back next year and will see Earth's Mightiest Heroes (with an expanded roster) finally take on the big bad mad titan Thanos, played by Josh Brolin. What do you think?!

As anticipation and excitement build to a fever pitch for Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” the blockbuster sequel to the third-largest movie of all time, Marvel is proud to announce Joe and Anthony Russo will join the franchise as the directors of Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1” and “Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2.”

The Russo brothers first entered the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” one of the top-grossing film’s from 2014, and are currently preparing to shoot Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War.” The third film in the Captain America franchise will bring the classic storyline from the comics to life pitting Cap (Chris Evans) against Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), as well as introducing Black Panther to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with actor Chadwick Boseman ahead of his own film later in Phase 3.

Before stepping behind the camera for “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Captain America: Civil War,” the Russo brothers served as Executive Producers and directors for many TV series, including “Community" and “Happy Endings." Joe and Anthony earned a Primetime Emmy award for their work directing the pilot episode of the cult-hit “Arrested Development” series. Their film debut was “Welcome to Collinwood", produced by Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney.
