Robert Downey Jr. Talks Up Russo Bros. Helming CIVIL WAR And AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

After sharing thoughts on Joss Whedon leaving the Avengers series following Age of Ultron, Robert Downey Jr. praises the Russos for taking over the director's chair(s) on his next Iron Man appearances.



Now that Anthony & Joe Russo are set to helm both Avengers: Infinity War - Part I and Part II, Robert Downey Jr. recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about Avengers: Age of Ultron writer/direct Joss Whedon leaving the blockbuster franchise. “I wasn’t surprised because there was so much onus on can [Avengers: Age of Ultron] be as good as Avengers Assemble?” he said. “I just think it takes so much out of the men and women who are behind the major workload that occurs over a 24-month period, at best, to get one of these movies done. It’s backbreaking.”

With the Russo brothers currently directing Captain America: Civil War in which Iron Man will appear, Robert Downey Jr. was asked what it's like having the character be directed by different people. “Its different every time,” Downey answered. “I’m also a very kind of loyal person so sometimes there’s a new face and I’m like ‘Wait a minute.’ But the interesting thing is I’ve worked with Jon twice, I’ve worked with Joss twice, and I worked with Shane Black once—and I’d happily do it with any of those three folks again.” He continued, “I really think the Russo Brothers are super sharp and I think they are worthy stewards of carrying it forward.” What do you think?


Marvel Studios' Captain America: Civil War is directed by Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. With an all-star cast that includes Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Frank Grillo (Crossbones), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), and Daniel Brühl (Baron Zemo), along with unconfirmed appearances by Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Paul Bettany (Vision), and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), the highly-anticipated film is scheduled to open in theaters on  May 6, 2016.
