Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 And 2 To Be Directed By Russo Brothers

23 March 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directing brothers behind Captain America: Winter Soldier and the upcoming Captain America: Civil War will take over the reins on the Avenger films now. THR has confirmed a report earlier in the day from Badass Digest that they will be directing Avengers: Infinity War - Parts 1 and 2. Though no writers are attached to the project yet both sources suggest that Captain America regulars Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will work with the Russos again. What's more, I keep getting told that Civil War is instrumental in setting up Infinity War, so it's great that the Russos will be able to bring their story all the way through to the end.

Russo Brothers to direct ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

23 March 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following rumors this morning coming out of Badass Digest, Deadline has now confirmed that Joe and Anthony Russo will direct The Avengers: Infinity War – Parts I and II.

The Russo Brothers are currently on board to film Captain America: Civil War, and though they haven’t filmed a frame of the film, Marvel is clearly going all in on the filmmaking duo that first joined the Marvel team with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, arguably the most distinctive and “director” friendly entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

This effectively confirms the rumors from recently that Joss Whedon was done with Marvel following The Avengers: Age of Ultron. But I think I’m more grappling with the idea that some former directors of Arrested Development and Community are now behind the biggest film franchise in the world.

Badass Digest added that although no writer has officially been announced, Marvel is »

Rumor: Russo Brothers Close Deal to Direct 'Avengers: Infinity War'

23 March 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back when news of Captain America: Civil War first surfaced, there were rumblings that the sequel's directing duo, Anthony & Joe Russo, were already in talks with Marvel Studios to be at the helm of the next installment of The Avengers, which we've since learned will be a two-part event called Infinity War. And now, if a rumor at Badass Digest is to be believed, the Russo brothers, who also directed the stellar Captain America: The Winter Soldier, have closed their deal to direct both parts of The Avengers' next adventure coming in 2018 and 2019, with production shooting back-to-back in both 2016 and 2017. As of now, there's no writers attached yet, but the same source reveals that Captain America franchise writers Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely are in talks to script the two-part event film. Considering Joss Whedon will likely be taking a step back as shepherd of the Marvel universe on the big screen, »

The Russo Brothers Will Reportedly Direct Avengers: Infinity War Parts One and Two

23 March 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

After hitting a home run with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and signing on to direct that franchise's third installment, Civil War, Anthony and Joe Russo have quickly become Marvel Cinematic Universe darlings. Now Badass Digest is reporting that they've been tapped to direct Avengers: Infinity War parts one and two, set for release in 2018 and 2019. Marvel is reportedly also in talks with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (writers of all the Captain America movies) to write the films, making them the first in the Avengers franchise without Joss Whedon running the show. This news comes after reports that the Russo brothers might also be attached to both Marvel's Spider-Man reboot and Sony's male version of the Ghostbusters reboot. With such big titles now at their disposal, the Russo brothers have certainly come a long way since Arrested Development. »

Russo Brothers Confirmed to Direct 'Avengers 3' & 4?

23 March 2015 1:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Emails that leaked during the Sony hack last year revealed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are coming on board to direct both Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. That report was never confirmed by Marvel Studios, but just one month later, Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon said he does not want to make this two-part adventure, which will close out Phase Three. Today, we have a new report from Badass Digest which claims that both Anthony Russo and Joe Russo have finalized their deals to direct Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2.

The two-part sequel does not have any writers on board at this time, but the site also claims that Marvel is in talks with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to pen the screenplay. They are the writers behind Captain America: The First Avenger, »

Confirmed: The Russo Bros. Close Deal To Direct Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 & 2

23 March 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Badass Digest first reported that Joe and Anthony Russo were in the frame to direct Marvel's third and fourth Avengers movies, and now they reckon the deal has been finalized and they will shoot both films back-to-back over the next couple of years. Plus, it sounds as if they might have the writing team of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World) back on board too. Apparently Civil War will be "instrumental in setting up infinity War", so if all of this pans out it's great that we'll have the same team calling the shots. Obviously none of this is official until Marvel makes it so, but the site seems to feel an announcement is imminent so keep an eye on Cbm for updates. Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 will hit theaters May 4th 2018, followed by Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 on May 3rd »

The Russo Brothers Close Deal To Direct Avengers: Infinity War

23 March 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking charge of Captain America: The Winter Soldier saw Anthony and Joe Russo inject the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a generous helping of verve. Pushing the boundaries for what’s possible in the realm of comic book adaptations, their adventurous techniques won over critics, audiences and the studio itself, who granted the siblings the chance to continue Cap’s standalone arc in Captain America: Civil War. As that threequel heads into production, Marvel brass have now locked in the brothers to direct phase three closer Avengers: Infinity War.

Late last year, an unsubstantiated rumor implied that the pair were hot contenders for the gig, and now Badass Digest reports that they have “closed their deal” to direct the movie. The two parter will shoot in 2016 and 2017. An official announcement is expected to arrive shortly from Marvel – which may shed light on the rest of the creative talent involved.

23 March 2015 12:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The Russo Brothers Will Direct Avengers: Infinity War 1 & 2

23 March 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Rumors have swirled about Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) taking over directing duties from Joss Whedon on the next Avengers movies, and now it looks like a done deal, and the directing duo will helm Infinity War Part I and Part II.

Technically speaking, this next report itself is also a rumor.  However, it's coming from Bad Ass Digest and a source that says the brothers have now officially put pen to paper on the deal to direct the next two Avengers movies: 

I first reported this to you guys back in November, and now I can tell you it's come to pass: Joe and Anthony Russo will follow up Captain America: Civil War by graduating to Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2. The movies should shoot back-to-back in 2016 and 2017. 

There are no writers on it yet, but I'm told that Marvel is in talks with Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, »

The Russo Brothers Will Direct Both 'Avengers: Infinity War' Movies

23 March 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The "Avengers" series is getting not one, but two new directors for its final two installments: Joe and Anthony Russo.

Badass Digest reported earlier Monday that the Russo brothers would take over for departing "Avengers" director Joss Whedon, and will helm both segments of the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War." The deal was later confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.

The Russos are a hot commodity in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, coming off the success of helming 2014's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," and are currently in pre-production on the upcoming "Captain America: Civil War," which is slated for release on May 6, 2016. According to Badass Digest, the plan is for them to start shooting "Infinity War" sometime in 2016, and film both flicks back-to-back.

No writers are currently attached to the project, though Badass Digest and THR both report that writing partners Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely (who penned all three "Captain America »

Russo's A Lock For "Avengers: Infinity War"?

23 March 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With Joss Whedon long ago making it clear that he won't be back as director of a Marvel film after the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron," it has long been rumored that "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" directors Joe and Anthony Russo would be in line to replace him on the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" films.

Today, Badass Digest reports that the Russo Brothers have just closed their deal to direct both films just weeks before they get to work filming "Captain America: Civil War" next month. As that film is said to closely tie-in to the events of 'Infinity War,' it isn't much of a stretch to see why the Russo's are being brought back into the fold.

On top of that, the site claims that "Captain America" series scribes and "Agent Carter" co-creators Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are in talks to pen the screenplay for "Infinity »

Marvel Phase Two closes out with a bang this summer as the highly-anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man hit theaters worldwide.

It isn't known if the April 1 date is for first or second unit scenes, and it's also possible that production could even begin sooner than that date. The site reveals casting notices have gone out, seeking actors from several different ethnicities to be extras in the superhero sequel. In addition, the casting notices have also given us the first official synopsis, which reads as follows.

7 March 2015 1:59 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In our latest horror/sci-fi round-up, we have details on two upcoming Jeremy Renner movies, a look at the Hannibal Season 3 poster recently posted by showrunner Bryan Fuller, details on Colin Trevorrow's next film after Jurassic World, and an update on the high school horror film, Lockdown (formerly known as Lockdown at Franklin High).

Captain America: Civil War & Story of Your Life: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeremy Renner will appear as Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War. The plot's inclusion of the Superhero Registration Act means we should see a large number of superheroes in the sequel, with Chadwick Boseman's first appearance as Black Panther confirmed and Spider-Man's involvement likely. Captain America: Civil War will also star Chris Evans (Captain America), Robert Downey, Jr. (Iron Man), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), and Daniel Brühl in a role that's unknown at this time (though he's expected to play a »

'Captain America 3': Hawkeye Confirmed for 'Civil War'?

6 March 2015 5:30 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Buried within a Heat Vision Blog story about Jeremy Renner signing on to star in the sci-fi drama Story of Your Life is a brief tidbit that supposedly confirms the actor will reprise his role as Hawkeye in Captain America: Civil War. The actor is reportedly set to start shooting the sequel sometime this spring, before moving on to Story of Your Life, where he stars alongside Amy Adams, in mid-June. This report has yet to be confirmed by Marvel at this time, but if it turns out to be true, it seems almost the entire Avengers team will be returning for Captain America: Civil War.

Chris Evans will be back as Captain America, with Robert Downey Jr. also set to reprise his role as Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson returning as Black Widow. If Jeremy Renner is coming back as Hawkeye, then the only two Avengers who won't be »

4 March 2015 11:00 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

They've done what they've had to do to survive on AMC's The Walking Dead, brining hope and despair to palpable life on the small screen with gritty realism every week. Covered in grime, splattered in blood, and trudging down the sun-baked backroads and brush-bordered trails this season, the stellar cast and crew of The Walking Dead have paid their dues and then some, and now they're getting a tip of the cap in return with seven nominations for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Emily Kinney, Melissa McBride, Chandler Riggs, and Andrew J. West have all earned nominations, with the TV series itself receiving one as well.
