Avengers: Infinity War is poised to take over the world when it hits theaters in April. And it already has a rave review from one Marvel director.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn ushered his motley crew of galaxy-saving heroes into the MCU, turning them into an uber-popular team that threatened to dethrone the Avengers. So it would be natural that he would feel possessive of them, or least nervous that Star-Lord and co., are in the hands of other directors. But it looks there’s nothing to be worried about.

The Russo Brothers have became a staple of the MCU, helming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and the currently untitled Avengers 4. As of now, they have the most Marvel films under their belt of any filmmaker in the MCU, but after Avengers 4, the Russos may be parting ways with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Are the Russo Brothers leaving Marvel? Maybe.

Things looked pretty dire for Thor and his hammer Mjolnir during the trailer for Thor: Ragnarok. While I have no doubt that Thor will pull through since actor Chris Hemsworth appears in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, it didn’t seem that way for Mjolnir, which found itself smashed to pieces by Cate Blanchett‘s evil Hela.
But with a new set photo of Infinity War courtesy of directors Anthony and Joe Russo showing an alright-looking and fairly un-smashed Mjolnir prop, it looks like that dire fate may not be permanent for Thor’s hammer.

The upcoming two-part Avengers: Infinity War will represent the grand climax of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. All of the various story threads and all of the disparate characters established across multiple films will all come together to battle Thanos, the “Mad Titan” who has been watching from the sidelines since the events of The Avengers. Expect to see old standbys like Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk team up with upcoming characters like Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, and Black Panther. Even the Guardians of the Galaxy are going to show up. These movies will encompass just about everyone.
Well, everyone who has appeared on the big screen. Fans hoping to see characters from the television corner of the MCU shouldn’t get their hopes up and Infinity War co-director Anthony Russo is already trying to cushion the blow. Read his Infinity War Defenders comments after the jump.

There are many questions surrounding the 2016 film, Captain America: Civil War, and slowly they’re being answered. We already know the basics: Film one of Phase Three will come from the same writers and directors of The Winter Soldier, and most of the cast will be back, with new additions Robert Downey Jr. and Chadwick Boseman as Iron Man and Black Panther. The crux of the film will be a disagreement between Iron Man and Cap (Chris Evans) but there will be other foes as well, primarily Crossbones, played by Frank Grillo.
We recently learned that the film would be similar in tone to The Winter Soldier and Peggy Carter might play a small role too. But what about the rest of The Avengers, especially those who don’t have their own solo films in Phase Three? Well, directors Joe and Anthony Russo recently did an interview and confirmed at least one of them will appear in Civil War. Scarlett Johansson will reprise her role as Black Widow come May 6, 2016. Read the Black Widow Civil War news below. Read More »
When done correctly, you never even think of the power of digital effects. You sit down, you watch a movie, and you let the story wash over you. You never once think about the crazy amount of work that went into it. When you finally do step back and look at the incredible work and detail put into every single frame of every movie you watch, it’s staggering.
Part of the reason we can eventually appreciate the work of digital effects are videos like the one below. It’s a short sizzle reel of just some of Industrial Light and Magic‘s (ILM) work on The Russo Brothers’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Check out the Captain America Winter Soldier visual effects video below. Read More »
UPDATE: This original story ran on October 13. Now Deadline has heard the same thing, making it even more likely. Original story follows with minor updates.
The massive news that Robert Downey Jr. will play Tony Stark in Captain America: Civil War answered a bunch of burning questions about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It gave us our overall storyline for Phase 3: Civil War. It tells us when Marvel will bring Iron Man back again: not Iron Man 4, but in Cap 3. And it tells us the directors of Captain America 3, Joe and Anthony Russo, are very well liked and trusted at Marvel Studios.
Which is why, along with the Downey Jr. news, rumors began to swirl that the Russo Brothers are in line to direct Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and maybe even Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 if Joss Whedon decides not to return. Below, read more about the Avengers 3 director news and how Phase 3 and 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are shaping up, Read More »

Screen Junkies revels in knocking films down a notch with their Honest Trailers series, but when it came to Captain America: The Winter Soldier even they had to admit the film was pretty damn good. (“What? We had to be honest.”) Turns out, it was the Honest Trailers themselves that (unknowingly) helped make the film so great. Hit the jump to find out how.

When Marvel announced Joe and Anthony Russo would be directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, reactions were mixed. Sure the pair had worked on some awesome TV shows like Arrested Development and Community, but movie-wise Welcome to Colinwood and You, Me and Dupree didn’t exactly scream “superhero.” Then we saw the new movie.
Instantly it was obvious the Russos were not only right for the job, but we want them back for Captain America 3. (And we’re likely having that wish granted.) In our full Russo Brothers interview, we talked about the intimidating nature of jumping into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Easter Eggs, and using Captain America’s shield more, as well as all of the movies and filmmakers that influenced their work from DePalma to Frankenheimer. Also, did you notice the final shot of the movie is different in the trailer and the film? We talked about all of that and more our full interview with the total film geek directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Read More »
