Avengers: Infinity War directors Anthony and Joe Russo recently revealed that they are planning to take a break from comic book films after Avengers 4’s release. The director duo has spent almost seven years straight in the Marvel Cinematic Universe directing Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and now Avengers 4.
However, the Russo brothers revealed that they would be tempted back to helm a Marvel project only if the studio decides to make a live-action adaptation of Secret Wars.
During a recent Q&A session conducted by Collider which followed an Avengers: Infinity War screening, the directors revealed if they will really make a comeback to make a Secret Wars movie for Marvel.
“I don’t know,” Joe Russo 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.”
Released in the mid-’80s, Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars was a 12-issue comic series written by Jim Shooter with artwork by Mike Zeck and Bob Layton. In it, every major Marvel superhero and supervillain get abducted by an omnipotent known as the Beyonder who places them on a planet called Battleworld where they are forced to fight to decide which side is truly more powerful.
Talking about Avengers 4, recent rumors indicate the first Avengers 4 teaser is likely coming this week. The second trailer for Captain Marvel is confirmed to arrive on Monday, while Avengers 4’s trailer is rumored to roll out on Wednesday, possibly during the episode of Good Morning America.
