Currently pursuing other projects, the Russo Brothers have said before that they could be tempted back to the MCU. One of the stories they have previously said would interest them, for example, is Secret Wars. However, it always felt like an if and a maybe, that may never happen.
Speaking with Syfy Wire recently though, the Russos instead sounded pretty confident that they would definitely be back in the MCU at some point, and also gave more details on the kind of stories that would be sure to bring them back. Check it out:
“I grew on up [John] Byrne’s X-Men run. Ben Grimm was a favorite character growing up, the Thing. And Fantastic Four is now in the Marvel fold. There’s a lot. Silver Surfer is an amazing character. Going really big in cosmic would be a lot of fun. So there’s a lot of things that could attract us.”
“I think after you go on the journey that we went on –—because there is a comprehensive narrative, an overarching story from Winter Soldier all the way to the end of Endgame that involves Tony and Cap, through Civil War, through Infinity War — I think that scale of ambition in storytelling is a bug that’s bit us. And we’re compelled to tell more stories on that scale, with that sort of years-long ambition to them.”
“I mean, look, working with Kevin [Feige] and Louis D’Esposito and Victoria Alonzo has been the most rewarding collaboration we’ve had in our entire career. They’re like family to us now. We’re all very, very close to one another, and we miss each other. So I’m sure we’ll find something that we can do together soon.”
Let’s hope this means that as the MCU builds up towards another massive event movie or movies, the Russos will be ready to step back into the well. I would definitely love to see the Russos and their writing partners Markus and McFeely get to play in the Star Wars universe at some point. Whether that fan dream happens or not, it sounds like them coming back to the MCU is a definite possibility further down the line.
