Unexpected Shake-Up Reported in Avengers 5: Russo Brothers Not Returning


Key Takeaways:

– Famous Marvel directors Joe and Anthony Russo rumored not to be attached to Avengers 5.
– Production for Avengers 5 due to commence in 2025 under a new, yet-to-be-announced filmmaker.
– Kevin Feige confirmed in a 2022 interview that the Russo brothers are not connected to Avengers 5 and 6.
– Despite these changes, the Russo brothers express interest in directing Secret Wars, highlighting it as their dream project.

Amid a tumultuous few years, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) have been anxiously waiting for the new Avengers installments, hoping for a revival of fortune. But the recent rumor regarding the departure of Joe and Anthony Russo from the directing helm of Avengers 5 has stirred the audiences rather unexpectedly.

The Russo Brothers Detach From Avengers 5

This speculation, as disclosed by insider Jeff Sneider during an episode of THE HOT MIC, suggests a breakaway from the Russo brothers’ proven track record of blockbuster hits, notable in their direction of Infinity War and Endgame. Sneider went further to assert that production would likely start in 2025 under a fresh director who has yet to be involved in a Marvel project.

This shift has led fans to wonder whether the change would bring a fresh perspective or an unwelcome blow to the beloved franchise.

Kevin Feige Reiterates Non-Involvement of Russo Brothers

In a 2022 interview with Deadline during the SDCC, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, set the record straight by confirming that the Russo brothers were indeed not attached to Avengers 5 and 6.

Respect and fondness towards the Russo brothers was evident as Feige stated, “They’re not connected to it. They’ve been very direct about that. We love them, they love us. We want to find something to do together, it’s not this.”

The news casts uncertainty over the future direction of the franchise, especially as Marvel enters the realm of The Kang Dynasty with a potential new director.

Russo Brothers Still Show Interest in Marvel

Despite Feige’s affirmation of their non-involvement with Avengers 5 and 6, the Russo brothers have not severed their ties with Marvel completely. They showed keen interest in directing Secret Wars, labeling it their ‘dream project’. They declared their love for Marvel as based on the comics they cherished growing up, and found the prospect of Secret Wars incredibly ambitious and bigger than both Infinity War and Endgame.

Nonetheless, they expressed caution citing the difficulties they faced in the production of the last two films and the extensive efforts required for a potential Secret Wars project.

Conclusion: What Does the Future Hold?

Until official announcements are made, these changes for Avengers 5 should be taken with a grain of salt. It’s too early to predict whether this will herald a welcome change or become the harbinger of another box office disappointment for the MCU.

As Marvel fans hold their breath, one thing is certain: there is a palpable air of anticipation for what the future Avengers films will bring. Can Marvel maintain its momentum without the Russo brothers steering the ship? Only time will tell. Until then, die-hard Avengers fans can revisit the franchise’s earlier successes, streaming now on Disney+.
