    Jeff Sneider while talking on The Hot Mic revealed that the Russo Brothers also expressed their desire to direct ‘Avengers 5.’ “I’ve heard the Russos wanted it,” he said. Additionally, the reasoning behind them being rejected was a little strange.

    Jeff talked about how they were rejected due to budget constraints. Their being over budget for their recent project was a big factor. “If you’re Marvel, yes, it’s Avengers 5, you’re already breaking the bank on talent, right? Because you’re getting 66 people back, I think it is, do you really spend money to bring the Russos back when they also can’t control a budget on a movie like The Electric State?” Jeff added.

    While some fans are disappointed at the news it has instilled many questions in the minds of the fans. If not the Russo Brother then who else is going to direct the much-awaited film of the Avengers Franchise? Additionally, fans being disappointed at the news is not surprising.

    The Russo Brothers had an unpretentious chemistry with the Avengers that can be considered historic. They gave two of the most successful movies known to date and gave a satisfying end to the Infinity saga. Their portrayal of the characters was loved by spectators all around the globe.
