It's official: Marvel confirms new directors for Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 & 2

Marvel has announced the directing team for its most ambitious project, Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2.

We say team because an event of this magnitude isn't a one-person job. The studio has tapped co-directors and siblings Joe and Anthony Russo. Most of us know the Russo brothers for their work on last year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which was one of Marvel's most successful films to date.

Despite coming from a comedy background, the duo proved they had what it took to direct an action-packed political thriller. This time they'll be taking over Marvel's largest franchise, The Avengers. The Russos will pick up where Joss Whedon left off with Age of Ultron. But before then, they'll film the next Captain America sequel, Civil War. The film's slated to introduce even more superheroes, such as the highly anticipated Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). It will also explore the rocky personal and professional relationship between Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)
