Joe and Anthony Russo have confirmed that there was a brief consideration of bringing Marvel TV characters into 'Avengers: Infinity War'.
'Avengers: Infinity War' has clearly impressed the masses upon its cinematic release, bringing together the highest amount of characters from across the Marvel Cinematic Universe in any Marvel movie to-date. Seeing those who would usually clash come together in a bid to take down Thanos (Josh Brolin), the film is one of the most tense and chaotic affairs audiences have ever seen, and it seems to work on every level.
Anthony and Joe Russo co-directed 'Avengers: Infinity War'
The ambitious picture is co-directed by the Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony Russo, who worked with a huge behind-the-scenes team to pull off the piece. While we see a lot going on in the film's final cut however, there were some ideas batted around that never came to fruition.
'Avengers: Infinity War' co-director Joe Russo says we won't be seeing Tom Hardy's Venom in the MCU.
The hype game for Sony's first addition to their Marvel Universe, 'Venom' is slowly increasing, and seemed to hit an all-time high a couple of weeks back thanks to the release of a thrilling new trailer. Promising a lot of action, with Tom Hardy in the titular role of the investigative journalist Eddie Brock, the film looks set to impress when it finally hits the big screen.

One question that's been on the lips of superhero movie fans however, is whether or not 'Venom' would turn out to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There have been rumours of the MCU's Tom Holland making an appearance as Spider-Man, or even just an Easter Egg or two being added into the flick to show that the film was a part of the same universe.
Robert Downey Jr has truly cemented the role of Iron Man as his own.
Joe and Anthony Russo have come together once more to tackle an impending Marvel Cinematic Universe release, this time dropping what looks to be the biggest superhero movie of all time with 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Bringing crime fighters both old and new to the fight against Thanos (Josh Brolin), the roster of characters in 'Infinity War' will break all records of the genre.
Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'
Exactly what's going to go down in 'Infinity War' remains to be seen, but we have been told as a fan base to expect casualties and upset. Could it be possible that one of the leading stars of the MCU is headed out of the door, and if so, is Robert Downey Jr's future as Iron Man in danger? We doubt it just yet, as he's signed on for the currently untitled fourth 'Avengers' movie, but a curve ball wouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

By the time 'Avengers 4' comes to an end, we'll understand the complete story that kicked off in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.
Joe and Anthony Russo are two of the most recognisable names from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and for good reason. The directors have had the responsibility of bringing some of the biggest MCU movies to the big screen over the years, and returned to their duties with this year's massive release 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Also set to bring the MCU's current Phase to an end with the currently untitled 'Avengers 4', the pair recently opened up a little bit about what to expect.
Joe Russo will direct 'Avengers 4' following his work with Anthony Russo on 'Infinity War'
Back in 2014, the Russos worked together on critically-acclaimed flick 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', which is often praised as one of the best superhero movies of all time.

Co-directing 'Avengers: Infinity War' seems to have had quite the effect on Joe Russo.
Co-directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will come with 'Avengers: Infinity War' next month. Bringing the majority of the roster of superheroes from the MCU together to tackle the terrible threat that is Thanos, audiences will get to see one of the biggest fights in the comic book genre come to life on the big screen. It's going to be a chaotic and compelling affair.
Anthony and Joe Russo serve as co-directors on 'Avengers: Infinity War'
Thanos isn't somebody that viewing audiences have seen too much of in the MCU, other than him sitting on a huge throne, waiting for his moment to pounce. Now that he's ready to make his presence known however, there are a lot of preconceptions about what we'll see. Villains in the MCU's past, save for 'Captain America: Winter Soldier' and 'Black Panther', haven't really been too well developed. Thankfully, that seems to be something that's been firmly in the mind of those working behind-the-scenes on bringing 'Infinity War' to fruition.

The Russo brothers are Marvel's most used directors.
Joe and Anthony Russo, the sibling directorial team who helmed Captain America: The Winter Soldier, have been confirmed to direct both parts of Disney-Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War. The news has been the worst kept secret in Hollywood and the Russo's have been known to be in talks for months.

The Russo's will take over from Joss Whedon, who directed The Avengers and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, which opens on May 1.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is going to be big. Very big.
Chris Evans is back as Steve Rogers for another Captain America fix and Marvel's sequel to the 2011 movie, The Winter Soldier, has scored strong reviews ahead of its release next week. Anthony Russo and Joe Russo's movie - also starring Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L Jackson and Anthony Mackie - left a couple of critics dishing out some huge, huge kudos.
Chris Evans as Captain America
"Takes the bold (for Marvel) step of reducing CGI spectacle to a relative minimum in favor of reviving the pleasures of hard-driving old-school action, surprising character development and intriguing suspense," said Todd McCarthy of the Hollywood Reporter.
Steve Rogers has awoken after a deep sleep lasting 70 years following his fight with Nazi adversary the Red Skull during World War II. Things are a lot different now, however, which is more than enough for him to contend with, but when he is forcibly enlisted in the superhero group S.H.I.E.L.D. by the morally questionable Nick Fury, he soon finds himself in immediate danger once again. Unable to trust most of the people around him, he finds comfort in his S.H.I.E.L.D. cohorts, namely Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow and Sam Wilson AKA Falcon. Together, the group set out to tackle the world's latest threat, but when one member of S.H.I.E.L.D. is targeted and attacked in mysterious circumstances, they start to wonder if they are getting the whole picture. With assassins on Rogers' tail incessantly, he starts to uncover the planet's real menace in the form of the legendary Winter Soldier.
