They may be done with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that doesn’t mean that the Russo Brothers– Joe and Anthony– are done with the fans. And after the rollercoaster double-whammy of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’, the fans are sure to have a lot of questions. Fortunately, the Russo Brothers will be there for you… provided you’re in attendance at their Hall H panel during San Diego Comic-Con International.
According to SDCC:
For the Russo Brothers, Avengers: Endgame was the culmination of an unprecedented four-film, seven-year journey through the Marvel Cinematic Universe that has included some of the most iconic experiences in modern cinema. Come hear directors Joe and Anthony Russo reflect on Endgame and their epic road to it as they segue into life beyond Marvel with their new company, AGBO, which happens to include an exciting array of new and old creative friends. This new independent studio develops and finances filmed projects in any medium, while keeping creative control within the hands of artists. This discussion will be moderated by Collider’s Editor-in-Chief Steven Weintraub.
While the Russo Brothers are producing a number of upcoming projects, the next film they will co-direct is the very grounded drama ‘Cherry’, which reunites them with their ‘Avengers’ star Tom Holland, who plays “An Army medic suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder” and “becomes a serial bank robber after an addiction to drugs puts him in debt.” They are also producing a ‘Magic: The Gathering’ series for Netflix.
Among AGBO’s other projects are ‘Kiddo’ a feature film based on a short by Tito Fernandes, a remake of ‘The Thomas Crown Affair’ (possibly starring Michael B. Jordan), a live-action/animation hybrid ‘The Rats of Nimh’, thriller ‘The Whisper Man’ based on the book by Alex North, and an original movie called ‘Hacienda’.
But of course, most fans will want to know why they killed off Iron Man and Black Widow, and why they injured the Hulk and made Captain America an old man.
San Diego Comic-Con International will be held from July 18 through 21. ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is still playing in theaters and will include added post-credits footage beginning this weekend.
