Joe and Anthony Russo have been officially knighted to direct Avengers Infinity War, Parts 1 and 2. The brothers are currently preparing to shoot Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War in Atlanta, the third film in the Cap trilogy which will bring the classic storyline from the comics to the big screen. Civil War will be an Avengers 2.5 as it will feature Cap (Chris Evans) against Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), as well as introducing Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) to the Marvel Cinematic Universe along with several other Avengers like Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Falcon (Anthony Mackie).

The Russos recently signed an “overall” deal with Sony Pictures, prompting many to assume they would either handle the Ghostbusters franchise or possibly Spider-Man for Sony. However, this news ties them to Marvel Studios for the foreseeable future with fewer opportunities to direct and more chances to produce on the Sony side.

Currently, Infinity War 1 and 2 are slated to hit theaters in May of 2018 and 2019.
