Russo Brothers Not Planning To Return To Marvel Cinematic Universe Until After 2030

For many who love the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), much of that will probably have to do with the influential Russo brothers. The directors behind the likes of Captain America: Winter Soldier, Civil War, as well as the bookending Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, their successes speak for themselves. However, the Russo brothers have not worked in the MCU for a while now, and that will definitely not change for the foreseeable future.

Speaking to Variety in a new interview, the duo discussed their working relationship with Marvel in the past. Despite still being in active conversations with the entertainment juggernaut, the two directors are making sure that they put some breathing room between their future projects and what they have achieved thus far.

“We’re always talking; we’d need to see what would work,” Joe Russo said. “We won’t be ready to do anything with Marvel until the end of the decade.”

Judging from their recent work, that objective is certainly being tackled. The Russo brothers, having moved on from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, had worked on the likes of Gray Man for Netflix, and also produced for the amazing Everything Everywhere All At Once.

Having already decided the endgame of the initial slate of MCU films, it is clear that Marvel is also moving on from the Russo brothers’ era. Everything is being prepped for the coming of The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars on the Avengers front, together with a renewed push on the Disney+ streaming service.

Should the MCU falter at any stage, perhaps the decade-long absence of the Russo brothers might just get cut short for them to come save the day.
