Joe Russo Doesn't Want A Replacement For Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man


Joe Russo

Joe and Anthony Russo have come together once more to tackle an impending Marvel Cinematic Universe release, this time dropping what looks to be the biggest superhero movie of all time with 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Bringing crime fighters both old and new to the fight against Thanos (Josh Brolin), the roster of characters in 'Infinity War' will break all records of the genre.

Exactly what's going to go down in 'Infinity War' remains to be seen, but we have been told as a fan base to expect casualties and upset. Could it be possible that one of the leading stars of the MCU is headed out of the door, and if so, is Robert Downey Jr's future as Iron Man in danger? We doubt it just yet, as he's signed on for the currently untitled fourth 'Avengers' movie, but a curve ball wouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

Joe Russo Promises 'Avengers 4' Will Finish 'Winter Soldier' Story


Joe Russo

Joe and Anthony Russo are two of the most recognisable names from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and for good reason. The directors have had the responsibility of bringing some of the biggest MCU movies to the big screen over the years, and returned to their duties with this year's massive release 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Also set to bring the MCU's current Phase to an end with the currently untitled 'Avengers 4', the pair recently opened up a little bit about what to expect.

Back in 2014, the Russos worked together on critically-acclaimed flick 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', which is often praised as one of the best superhero movies of all time. It was at this point that the duo started to tell an intricate and detailed narrative, and now they've said exactly when that plot will be neatly tied up.

Co-directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will come with 'Avengers: Infinity War' next month. Bringing the majority of the roster of superheroes from the MCU together to tackle the terrible threat that is Thanos, audiences will get to see one of the biggest fights in the comic book genre come to life on the big screen. It's going to be a chaotic and compelling affair.

Thanos isn't somebody that viewing audiences have seen too much of in the MCU, other than him sitting on a huge throne, waiting for his moment to pounce. Now that he's ready to make his presence known however, there are a lot of preconceptions about what we'll see. Villains in the MCU's past, save for 'Captain America: Winter Soldier' and 'Black Panther', haven't really been too well developed. Thankfully, that seems to be something that's been firmly in the mind of those working behind-the-scenes on bringing 'Infinity War' to fruition.

Captain America: Civil War Trailer


The Avengers are suffering from an image crisis. As much good that they do and as many lives that they save, the superheroes also cause unlimited amounts of damage to cities and civilisation. The government wish to find an answer to this problem and they decide that all superheroes should be registered and held accountable for their actions. 

Tony Stark is brought in to begin talks on behalf of The Avengers, knowing how much damage he's personally done under his superhero disguise, Stark see the government's point and decides that a register wouldn't be entirely unwelcome. Captain America on the other hand has no such wishes; The Cap sees any government intervention as something beyond reasonable requirement. In the middle of all this is Cap's old friend Bucky who could be prosecuted under the new laws. As The Avengers are forced to split into two halves, it looks like there's going to be no way for the old team to form any kind of agreement. 

 As their opinions deepen and rivalries are deepens, certain members of Hydra begin to tighten their control and their plans for future domination of the world are getting stronger. The Avengers must find a way to put their differences aside in order to beat the real enemy.

Chris Evans is back as Steve Rogers for another Captain America fix and Marvel's sequel to the 2011 movie, The Winter Soldier, has scored strong reviews ahead of its release next week.

"Takes the bold (for Marvel) step of reducing CGI spectacle to a relative minimum in favor of reviving the pleasures of hard-driving old-school action, surprising character development and intriguing suspense," said Todd McCarthy of the Hollywood Reporter.

Captain America: The Winter Solider Trailer


Steve Rogers has awoken after a deep sleep lasting 70 years following his fight with Nazi adversary the Red Skull during World War II. Things are a lot different now, however, which is more than enough for him to contend with, but when he is forcibly enlisted in the superhero group S.H.I.E.L.D. by the morally questionable Nick Fury, he soon finds himself in immediate danger once again. Unable to trust most of the people around him, he finds comfort in his S.H.I.E.L.D. cohorts, namely Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow and Sam Wilson AKA Falcon. Together, the group set out to tackle the world's latest threat, but when one member of S.H.I.E.L.D. is targeted and attacked in mysterious circumstances, they start to wonder if they are getting the whole picture. With assassins on Rogers' tail incessantly, he starts to uncover the planet's real menace in the form of the legendary Winter Soldier.

Following events during World War II and his confrontation with Nazi adversary the Red Skull, Steve Rogers awoke 70 years later to find that the world had changed almost beyond recognition. He is now reluctantly a part of superhero law enforcers S.H.I.E.L.D., led by Nick Fury who more than once makes Steve question the ethics of the group and epitomises the blurred line between good guys and bad guys. There are people he can trust though, namely Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow; a fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. spy who embarks alongside him on a mission to tackle the latest global threat. However, when a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. is attacked, they find themselves in mysterious circumstances and start to wonder if someone's keeping something from them. As Rogers fights off a myriad of assassins, the real threat starts to surface in the form of the Winter Soldier.

'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' is the sequel to 2011's 'Captain America: The First Avenger'. Based on the Marvel comics by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, it has been directed by Primetime Emmy-winning brothers Anthony Russo, Joe Russo ('You, Me and Dupree', 'Community') with a screenplay by collaborative writing duo Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely ('Thor: The Dark World', 'The Chronicles of Narnia', 'Pain & Gain'). It is set to hit the UK on March 28th 2014.
