The Defenders

Everyone involved in Avengers: Infinity War has pretty much dashed all hopes of seeing some of Marvel’s television heroes on the big screen in the upcoming epic crossover event film. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Marvel television head Jeph Loeb have both cited off the list of reasons why it probably wouldn’t happen, but that doesn’t mean it won’t.

In a new interview, Infinity War filmmakers the Russo Brothers give fans some hope that Netflix’s The Defenders (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist) could still appear. Could we see Marvel’s tv heroes in Infinity War? They also again confirm that Brie Larson will appear in the film as Captain Marvel. Find out what they had to say, after the jump.

James Gunn DC Movies

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 writer/director James Gunn is one of the most active big directors on social media. If you’re not following him on Twitter or Facebook, you should be.

He talks about the collaboration process with other Marvel directors, future Marvel movies, how he had an oppurtunity to direct a DC movie, how Guardians Vol 2 improves over the first installment and much more.

Video: How The Russo Brothers Direct Action

How The Russo Brothers Direct Action

The Russo Brothers are one of the biggest surprises in blockbuster action filmmaking in the last decade — a very smart find by Marvel head Kevin Feige. I remember seeing their film Welcome to Collingwood at the Boston Film Festival in 2002 and thinking that they had had a promising career as comedy filmmakers ahead of them. I was wrong, they instead ended up in television. I don’t think that even the biggest fans of their work on television shows like Arrested Development and their paintball episodes of Community could have expected their ascension as some of the smartest blockbuster action filmmakers today.

Darren Foley at Must See Films has published a good video essay on how the Russo Brothers direct action. Watch it now after the jump.
