Marvel Studios announced at Comic Con the titles that will be part of its multiverse saga, including Avengers: Secret Wars and Avengers: Kang’s dynasty, will the Russo brothers be their directors?
Many missed the announcement of at least one Avengers movie, and Kevin Feige has not announced one but two, and that they will practically be released, if nothing happens in the same year with the titles of Avengers: Secret Wars and Avengers: The Kang dynasty as the closing of the Multiverse Saga. Announcements that have already made fans dream of a return of the Russo brothers, directors of the Infinity Saga.
The Russo brothers have recently spoken during the promotion of The invisible agent, that if they return to the UCM, they would do it in a Secret Wars movie, as a dream to fulfill, it is clear that with all the secrecy that exists in Marvel Studios, These statements by the filmmakers could well be interpreted that if they are not going to direct them, at least they have been in talks for it, or they already knew about Kevin Feige’s plans to do it.
In a 2020 interview, Joe Russo said of his Secret Wars that: “It would be the biggest movie you can imagine, so that’s what really excites us about the story: the ambition of it is even bigger than the ambition of Infinity. Saga”.
Kevin Feige clarifies if it will be the Russo brothers who direct them
That is why Kevin Feige has been asked at Comic Con about whether the Russo brothers will return to direct the two Avengers movies announced yesterday. To which he was quick to tell Deadline that: “They’re not connected to it. They have been very direct about it. We love. They love us. We want to find something to do together, but not this.” Throwing a bucket of cold water on fans and directors alike

However, Feige could be playing the mistake, since in the announcement, he did not talk about writers or directors, so it could be very soon within the timing of Marvel Studios to announce them at such an early stage of the project, taking into account that the director or directors who take charge of them would have to be involved in some way in the making of the plots that will tie the dots for their great conclusion.
The Russo brothers are highly sought-after directors
It is still too early to know if the Russo brothers will not finally be directing Secret Wars and The Kang Dynasty, for me personally right now I could not think of two better directors to make them possible, not only because they have proven to be great filmmakers, but because of the experience they already have in this type of macro project after directing two films like Infinity War and Endgame, something that could be very big depending on which filmmaker.
However, it is true that despite the wishes of the directors, their agendas are full, they have just released The Invisible Agent in theaters and on Netflix, they are in the middle of post-production of the Citadel series for Amazon Prime and preparing the production of the film The Electric State for Netflix, in which they will once again have the services of Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely for the writing of the adaptation of the illustrated novel by Simon Stålenhag, is set in a retro-futuristic past, where an orphaned teenager goes through the American West with a sweet but mysterious robot and an eccentric drifter in search of his little brother.
But if in management tasks they are involved in several projects, even more so in production that have at least 12 projects, including the two already mentioned that are in different stages of development.
What do you think? Will they return to direct the two Avengers movies? Who do you see directing them if they don’t?
