AVENGERS: ENDGAME Directors Joe & Anthony Russo To Produce New Marvel Vs. DC Docu-Series SLUGFEST

AVENGERS: ENDGAME Directors Joe & Anthony Russo To Produce New Marvel Vs. DC Docu-Series SLUGFEST

After helming Avengers: Endgame, the Russo Brothers have chosen to return to the world of superheroes for a new docu-series that examines the long and complicated relationship between Marvel and DC Comics.

Avengers: Endgame saw the Russo Brothers wrap up their tenure with the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the time being, but now the directing duo are gearing up to reenter the world of superheroes - just not in the way many may have expected.

In a surprising announcement, the video platform Quibi has greenlit Slugfest, a new documentary series executive produced by Anthony Russo and Joseph Russo with Don Argott and Sheena M. Joyce attached to direct.

Inspired by the book Slugfest: Inside the Epic, 50-year Battle Between Marvel and DCS, the planned docu-series will “reflect on the symbiotic relationship between DC and Marvel, whose rivalry pushed the medium to its greatest heights.”

While exact details on which events they will explore are still largely under wraps, it has been noted that they’ll be looking at 1976’s monumental Superman vs. Spider-Man comic.
