After directing four massive blockbusters for the studio, you wouldn’t blame Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo for wanting to be done, but in an interview with comicbook.com’s Brandon Davis, Joe Russo revealed they only need a break:
“I think that, you know, we’re going to take a little bit of a break,We love Marvel. I mean, we’re very close with Kevin [Feige] and Lou [DeEsposito] and Victoria [Alonso] and Trin [Tranh], who’s produced the last two movies with us and eight more. I mean, it’s really like family for us there. But, you know, we’ve done four movies in six and a half years so we’re going to take a little bit of a vacation, but we’ll be, we’ll be back in a heartbeat.”
As many directors point out when being faced with returning to a franchise, Russo added, it all depends on the story:
“With the right material that makes sense,If we can find a story to tell, then I think. Purely on the directorial side.”
The Russos are set to reunite with their Avengers: Infinity War star Tom Holland on an adaptation of Cherry which tells a story of the opioid crisis, an issue close to the Russo’s heart.
