The Russos want to be finished with Avengers 4 by March


The Russo Brothers are looking to wrap up work on Avengers 4 by March 2019. They also reveal which fan reaction stuck out most in the wake of Infinity War.

The Russo Brothers sat down with Deadline to talk about their successes as well as upcoming projects. With Infinity War being the fourth movie ever to go over 2 billion in sales worldwide, they somehow still manage to have other projects on their plate.

They have recently confirmed plans with Netflix to shoot Dhaka in India and Thailand. This film is a kidnap extraction drama that is going to star Chris Hemsworth, an actor they have obviously worked with many times already, as well as Sam Hargrave, Chris Evans’ stunt double in the Captain America films. The movie follows Hemsworth’s character as he liberates a kidnapped Indian boy.

The Russo Bros. are also set to develop the novel Cherry for the big screen. With so many projects on their plate, fans might be wondering what will come next for the Russos as far as the MCU is concerned. It is pretty impressive that they were working on so many projects while directing both Infinity War and Avengers 4 back to back. They told Deadline that they are looking to finish with their work on the Avengers film by March, saying:

"We hope to be done by March. It was so gratifying that in a movie with this scope and scale and that wide of an audience, that we were able to end with a gut punch and yet the audience stayed with us and found value and kept coming back. It’s a rare thing to find in commercial filmmaking and we know it had a lot to do with the capital that’s been built up around these characters for the last ten years of Marvel filmmaking. The audience is so invested in these characters that they’re willing to stick with them even through the hard stuff. It has been out great pleasure as storytellers to take them through that hard stuff and have it be a cathartic and even entertaining experience at times."

Clearly, the Russos are aware of the heartbreak they have put us through, and to be honest, we think they sound a little too happy about it. How about they not kill off more of our favs and also bring the rest of them back?

They were also asked about fan reactions and which one stuck out as most surprising, to which Joe said:

"The best reaction was probably that 10-year old kid crying and asking us why we killed Spider-Man. From the time we came to Marvel, our goal was to surprise the audience and not give them the same thing but rather to challenge them. That was our view on Captain America: Winter Soldier, and Civil War was also very controversial internally with the powers that be in turning Iron Man into the antagonist and severing the relationship between Cap and Tony Stark. Every Marvel film we’ve created had this controversy, like are we pushing this rabid audience too far? Are we making movies that could perhaps be too emotionally complex for the genre? That the audience has shown up wanting more is a testament to the hard work everybody has put in over those last ten years of films."

Look at them, making little kids cry, and the rest of us, too.

While the plot of Avengers 4 is being kept under wraps, similar to how much the Russos protected Infinity War, fans have many theories. We will all be waiting not so patiently to see what happens in Avengers 4, and it sounds like the Russos will be anxiously awaiting our reactions, both the good and the bad.
