The pop culture world is still caught up in Marvel mania, and with Avengers: Age Of Ultron just over a month away, Marvel’s gone and secured the directing duo who will be taking over once Joss Whedon leaves the helm.
Badass Digest reports that brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed last year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, have closed a deal to direct the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, which won’t be seeing release until May 4, 2018 (part 1) and May 3, 2019 (part 2), respectively. Both films will be shot over an extended period of time starting next year.
No word on who’s writing the movie yet, but the brothers will most likely bring their Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely along for the ride. This setup is a sweet heart deal for the Russos, considering that they went from directing episodes of Arrested Development and Community to heading up big-budget blockbusters. In the meantime, keep an eye out for Age Of Ultron, which is in theaters starting May 1.
