By now, I’m sure that Joe and Anthony Russo are like royalty among True Believers. After all, they’ve directed some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s best movies and biggest hits, those being Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
So, now that they have their names attached to the highest grossing film of all time, what’s next for these fellas?
Well, during a recent AMA on Reddit, the Russo Brothers were asked by a fan which superhero who’s not currently in the MCU would they most like to handle, and they answered with the following:
“We’ve always loved us some Wolverine.”
Hey, as a guy who was around for the big X-Men boom of the 1990’s, I love me some Wolverine, too. That said, I can only dream of the possibilities that await if indeed the Russos were to get their hands on him.
But to be entirely realistic, this would be years down the line. After all, no mutants are a part of Marvel Studios’ Phase Four slate, and they may even be saved for Phase Five – or even Phase Six. To put a positive spin on such a long wait, we could say that’ll give the X-Men enough time recuperate from Dark Phoenix‘s financial shortcomings, not to mention allowing for audiences to desire their return to the silver screen.
When it comes to Wolverine himself, I think it’d be foolish not to include the guy who’s arguably the most popular mutant around in the X-Men’s MCU debut. Perhaps this could be the Russos’ chance to jump on the opportunity then, because it’d probably be even longer before a solo flick headlined by Logan will be part of this continuity. Regardless, our future selves are in for a treat.
