Brothers to take over the ‘Avengers’ franchise from Joss Whedon…

Joe and Anthony Russo, the filmmaking siblings behind ‘Captain America: The Winter Solider’ and the upcoming ‘Captain America: Civil War,’ have reportedly put pen to paper and closed a deal to direct Marvel’s two-parter ‘Avengers: Infinity War.’

The superhero saga is currently without a writer, but according to Badass Digest’s sources it seems likely that the brothers will reunite with their ‘Winter Soldier’ scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, with whom they also collaborated with on ‘Civil War.’

‘Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2’ back-to-back in 2016 and 2017, with release pencilled in for May 2018 and May 2019, respectively.

Marvel’s latest, the eagerly awaited AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, hits Irish cinemas April 23rd.
