Russo Brothers Definitely Directing Avengers 3 and 4

It’s been rumored for a while that Anthony and Joe Russo would be taking over the Avengers franchise, but it’s now been confirmed that the brothers have closed a deal with Marvel to take over the biggest centerpiece of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 3.

Joss Whedon, who directed and wrote Avengers and the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, has stated that he was stepping down from the franchise several times, and with the success of the Russos’ Captain America films, they seem like the best successors. Whedon isn’t leaving Marvel, as Agents of SHIELD continues to hold up the television aspect of the shared universe.

The Russo Brothers got their start in television, where they helped put together two of the greatest comedy series of the last fifteen years (Arrested Development and Community). Considering how integrated the Captain America films have been to the entire Avengers franchise, they are really the best choice to carry on the torch.

Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
