Russo Brother’s Take On Escape From The Marvel World
The Russo Brothers announced their departure from Marvel recently. The duo responded to the related query by saying, “ We had a seven-year process from Winter Soldier to Endgame where we were nonstop telling Marvel stories. That was a very focused run for us. And it was among the most amazing experiences of our lives doing that, telling those stories. But it was also hard and immersive and a long run. And I think part of the catharsis of making Endgame for Joe and I was the fact that we didn’t have to carry the story forward beyond Endgame.”
Are you asking yourself the same question? Is it possible that the brothers will return? According to the directors/producers, they will take a break for the time being but can return in the future.

About Russo Brother’s Version Of Live-Action Hercules Adaptation
In a recent interview, the pair was questioned about how their version of the upcoming live-adaption of Hercules will look like. To which they answered, “Our approach certainly would be to do something more in the category of the male characters who lack self-awareness. We’re trying to find humor, in that version of Hercules. Something inspired by that film and that brings some of old with it along and bringing something new to it as well.”
