So, True Believers, which do you want first? The bad news or the good news?

The bad news? Ok. Joss Whedon will not be directing any Avengers movies after Age of Ultron. But we’ve already known that Whedon has been wanting to step away from the MCU.

Joe-and-Anthony-RussoNow for the good news. Anthony and Joe Russo have been announced as directors for Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2.

The Russo brothers directed Captain America: Winter Soldier (which, in my opinion, is the best Avengers Phase 2 movie so far) and they’ll at the helm of Captain America: Civil War as well.

Captain America: Civil War is beginning production in the next few weeks as they shoot for a May 6, 2016 release. Right now, Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 will release on May 4, 2018, and Part 2 will release one year later on May 3, 2019.

Of course, Kevin Feige is still in charge over at Marvel making sure all the MCU films are operating out of the same set of guidelines. So that’s not going to change.

Are you going to miss Joss being in charge or are you excited about the Russo brothers stepping up?

Chris grew up during the Disney renaissance of animation and took his first trip to Disney World when he was ten. Even though he has loved Disney his whole life, his obsession didn't start until he began planning a trip for his honeymoon. Right now, his primary job (at least the one that doesn't pay the bills) is to indoctrinate his daughter with his love of Disney while at the same time convincing his wife to move to Orlando so he can become a tour guide in the parks. He can also be found indulging in his nerdy side (both Disney related and otherwise) at nerdintherealworld.wordpress.com.
