Avengers: Endgame directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, have sat on the director’s seats for four of the biggest movies, and yet the brothers have their eyes set on one more property. During a very recent interview at CinemaCon, Joe Russo had doubled down on a few comments that the duo wants to direct a live-action Secret Wars movies for Marvel Studios. While speaking with MTV’s Josh Horowitz, they had admitted that after their break from the blockbusters, they would be open to make a return for Secret Wars.
As they had revealed before, the Secret Wars storyline is not the latest version that combined different parts of Marvel’s multiverse and instead, they want to focus on a story that will take inspiration from the original Secret Wars event that took place during the 1980s. This was by Mike Zeck, Bob Layton and Jim Shooter.
“I keep saying Secret Wars because that was one of the first books that I really fell in love with as a kid,” Joe had said.
“This notion of, you know, event storytelling, and I think that’s part of the reason that we gravitate so strongly towards these event films and these ensemble films is the notion that you can contain so many different characters and so many different points of view and galvanize them around a story point is really compelling to us.”
While the Russo Brothers know what would actually draw them back to Marvel, they had revealed that they are not sure what Kevin Feige, the Marvel Studios boss has in store.
“I don’t know,” Joe had said.
“I think Kevin [Feige, Marvel Studios President] always has a plan in his head, but he’s always ready to throw out the plan and adjust the plan because you never know how the movies are going to turn out. You want to make sure each movie in front of you is a good movie. And if you’re thinking about the movie past it, then you’re not focusing all of your energy on the movie that’s in front of you.”
Captain Marvel is now in theatres. Other upcoming Marvel Studios films include Avengers: Endgame on April 26th and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 5th.
