/avengers-3-4-infinity-war-directors-russo-brothers/Earlier today, an unconfirmed report claimed that Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo had finally signed a deal with Marvel to direct their upcoming two-part epic Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2. Now, many trade sources are confirming that this is, in fact, very true. The news has not yet been confirmed by Disney nor Marel Studios themselves just yet, but a proper PR is expected soon, at least before the end of the week.
This news has actually been rumored for quite some time, and was all but confirmed when Emails leaked during the Sony hack last year. It has been reported numerous times over the past few months. And Joss Whedon has hinted that he is far too tired after Avengers: Age of Ultron to take on a two-part Avengers movie. It isn't known exactly when production will begin on these two sequels, or if they will in fact be shot back-to-back, but that seems very likely. Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 is already set for release on May 4, 2018, with Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 arriving the following year on May 3, 2019.
Anthony Russo and Joe Russo recently signed a deal with Sony Pictures, which will see them producing what is essentially Ghostbusters 4, starring Channing Tatum and possibly Chris Pratt. That movie is said to start shooting this June, but Captain America: Civil War is coming first, with an April 1 start date planned. The duo direct the spinoff immediately following their Captain America, which makes sense, since Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 probably won't shoot until mid-2016 at the earliest. They are also producing a new sitcom for NBC. We'll be sure to keep you updated as soon as Marvel and Disney make this all official!
