The Russo brothers, the directors of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ ‘Avengers: Endgame’, won’t be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe anytime soon.
In an interview with Variety, the Russo brothers revealed that they are still in dialogue with Marvel Studios, but still want to distance themselves from the 2019 ‘Avengers: Endgame’ movie. They then said they have no plans to return to the MCU until 2030 at the earliest.
The Russo brothers said, “We’ve been in communication and we need to see what works. We’re not ready to work with Marvel again until at least the end of this decade.”
After ‘Avengers: Endgame’, the Russo brothers directed, wrote and produced other films, including ‘The Gray Man’ for Netflix, and produced the critically acclaimed film ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’.
Marvel is currently preparing two future ‘Avengers’ movies: ‘Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ and ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’, scheduled for release on May 2, 2025 and May 1, 2026, respectively.
‘The Avengers: The Kang Dynasty’ will be directed by ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ director Destin Daniel Cretton. The MCU’s next movie is ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ which will hit Northern America on November 11.
