two-hour movie

Do you miss when movies were under two hours and you hadn’t lost half of your night to the black hole of the darkened movie theater? Well too bad, because according to the Russo Brothers, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War and the upcoming Avengers 4, the two-hour movie is dead. Huzzah.

Avengers 4 runtime

How long does it take to defeat Thanos? If director Joe Russo is to be believed, the answer might be three full hours.

That’s the current runtime of Avengers 4, next year’s Marvel Studios team-up that Russo is co-directing with his brother Anthony. In a new Q&A, Joe offered some updates about their progress on the massively-anticipated sequel. Will the film actually stay at the three hour mark? Read More »

avengers 4 wraps filming

The Russo brothers’ trolling campaign with Avengers 4 continues as the directing duo has whipped fans into a frenzy with another super-cryptic image to celebrate the end of production. But honestly, there’s no better way for Avengers 4 to wrap filming: with an image that we can dissect and overanalyze for the next seven months.

At least we have some hints about the secretive movie with a new tease from Chris Evans, who wrapped up his final Marvel film with the end of the Avengers 4 reshoots.

Avengers 4 title

Marvel Studios’ Avengers 4 title has been the subject of intense speculation for months, but this morning, directors Anthony and Joe Russo provided MCU fans with a whole new source of speculation in the form of a new photo with the caption, “Look hard.” Does this photo actually include a subliminal hint at the title of the new Avengers movie, or is it simply a case of the directors trolling everyone?

avengers 4 reshoots

Reshoots are par for the course for any tentpole movie, and Avengers 4 is no exception. But as the Marvel film commences reshoots this fall, Avengers 4 star Mark Ruffalo revealed a surprising new approach for this comic book sequel.

Usually by the time reshoots roll around, the film is mostly complete. It’s a rough sketch of a movie, and the additional photography done during reshoots are necessary to smooth it out or fill in the gaps, but you’ve got a beginning, middle, and end. Any other alternative would spell trouble for the production, but that’s not the case here. It’s because Avengers 4 is a “living organism” that will keep getting tweaked and changed throughout reshoots, Ruffalo said.

Cherry

Anthony and Joe Russo have probably made enough money directing three huge Marvel Studios movies that they never have to work again. But they’re in it for the love of the game, and they’ve started a new studio called AGBO that’s designed to develop new film and TV projects (among other forms of entertainment, like location-based immersion and VR). Next year’s Avengers 4 will mark their final film at Marvel Studios (at least for now), but the brothers have found their next directing gig: a new movie called Cherry that sounds like it has one hell of a story. Get the details below. Read More »

In the early 2000s, who could have foreseen the fact that Anthony and Joe Russo would one day become the directors of some of the biggest films of all time? The Avengers: Infinity War filmmakers are expanding their producing efforts for television, and one of their new projects is a Quantum and Woody TV series, an adaptation of the Valiant comic of the same name.

infinity war deaths

Fans are still reeling from the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but they will have a few more answers to hearten them while they wait for Avengers 4 in 2019. Joe and Anthony Russo are still on their post-Infinity War press tour, answering pressing questions and debunking fan theories.

Now they have a few more things to say about the Infinity War deaths and survivals that we didn’t see onscreen. Because even though the third Avengers movie was able to squeeze in 70-plus characters into the film, there are still a fair few who didn’t get much — or any — screentime. And their fates have finally been answered by the Russo brothers. Kind of. Because where’s the fun in knowing everything?
