During their summer Television Critics Association last year, Amazon announced a new series from Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo…and didn’t offer any information about it. Just having the Russo Brothers create a show was enough, and there were some hints that it would be international in multiple languages. Today, Amazon revealed more details about the Russo Brothers show – though still not a title. Here are three things we now know about the Russo Brothers’ new Amazon series. Read More »

Take a look below and judge for yourselves. Read More »
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.

Avengers: Infinity War may have been just dethroned from the top of the box office by Deadpool 2, but fans are still talking about the Marvel Studios sequel. That includes sending questions to director James Gunn, since he was consulted about how the Guardians of the Galaxy were utilized throughout the movie. One question has been thrown his way a number of times, and he wanted to make sure everyone got the answer.
When the Guardians of the Galaxy are introduced in Avengers: Infinity War, they’re flying across space to answer a distress call. While the rest of the movie only uses Alan Silvestri’s score, this particular sequence starts off with the crew listening to “Rubberband Man” by The Spinners from the Zune that Star-Lord was given at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But there were a few other options that could have been used for this sequence. Read More »
