The Russo Brothers Will Direct 'Avengers: Infinity War'; Wants to Produce 'Spider-Man'


The leaked emails between Marvel and Sony keep getting better or worse depending on which side of the argument you are on. Overtice Brazil has unearthed emails between Captain America: The Winter Solider directors Anthony and Joe Russo to Sony head Amy Pascal in which they also asked for Spider-Man to appear in their next film Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Of course the talks broke down over creative control until recently. Then on November The Russo's Brothers revealed that they would be taking over directing duties from Joss Whedon in Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2. But they reassure her their production company Bullitt will still help produce the Sony film The Gray Man.

They then go onto ask if they could produce the Spider-Man films (Unknown if this is for Marvel/Sony or just Sony) through their production company. And mention that it would be a difficult talk to basically kick current producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach out but one she should consider. Amy Pascal never got back to them on that offer but a week later their systems were hacked so it's possible she never had the time during the chaos. Lastly, the site goes onto mention how producer Avi Arad has begged Pascal to greenlight the Venom spin-off as well as Motion Picture Group head Jeff Robinov warning her not to make a deal with Marvel over Spider-Man's rights...

It has yet to be announced that the Russo's will direct the next installment of the Avenger series from Joss Whedon but let's at least hope Whedon stays on as a writer....
