Feige added, “We love [the Russo brothers], they love us. We wanted to find something to do together, not this. “This suggests that Russos could return to the MCU, just not for this particular project.
There’s no denying that Joe and Anthony Russo played an important role in shaping the MCU as we know it. The Russo brothers have directed the highest-grossing MCU film of all time, “Avengers: Endgame,” as well as “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Captain America: Civil War,” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” – all of them are huge earners.
Given their track record, it might come as a surprise that they won’t be returning for “The Kang Dynasty” and “Secret Wars,” but that seems to be their choice. Like Limit line previously reported, the Russos hesitated to take on the daunting task of not only adapting an iconic comic plot they love, but also having to follow through on their record-breaking “Avengers” films. . Joe Russo said, speaking for him and his brother:
“One series we loved growing up was ‘Secret Wars.’ It’s very ambitious. It will be bigger than ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame.’ But it’s a big job. Those two movies are very difficult to make. So imagine making another movie or two that’s even bigger than those two?”
That’s a lot or pressure, even for industry veterans like Russos. There are very few filmmakers who have managed to follow a major, pop-culture-defining film with a critically acclaimed (let alone more high-profile) sequel – there’s a reason why Steven Spielberg don’t do sequels (with some rare exceptions, of course). Add to that the pressure that comes with adapting a story you’re living, and it’s not uncommon for them to not stick with the project.
