Russo brothers to direct 'Avengers: Infinity War'

In less than a month, Marvel will be releasing one of the most anticipated movies of 2015: 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'.

Director Joss Whedon has hinted that he will be leaving the multi-million-dollar comic-book franchise after this second movie, but Marvel has already announced a two-part Avengers epic, 'Infinity War', appearing in two instalments scheduled for May 2018 and May 2019.

It seems that the studio has already found themselves a worthy successor.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' directing duo, Joe and Anthony Russo, will follow up their second 'Captain America' outing, 'Civil War', by working on the third 'Avengers' movie.

The brothers will direct both parts of 'Infinity War', taking over the franchise from Whedon.

An espionage flick that self-consciously harkens to the political thrillers of the 1970s, 'The Winter Soldier' is perhaps considered one of Marvel's best movies.

The Russos began in television comedy, directing episodes of 'Arrested Development' in the early to mid-2000s, and continued with 'Happy Endings' and 'Up All Night'. 

It was their work on some of the geeky episodes of US TV series 'Community', however, that led to 'The Winter Soldier' grossing US$717.7 million (S$981 million) worldwide.
