Russo Bros. Confirm New Superhero Film:
Ever since Avengers: Endgame broke records and concluded Marvel’s Phase 3, everyone was excited to see the Russo brothers in action again. But it seems like the Russo brothers are branching out their interests and exploring new fields. They are taking a detour from superhero movies and coming up with a brand new movie with Tom Holland titled Cherry for Apple TV+.
But it sounds like the Russo Brothers could return for more Marvel Studios projects coming soon, especially after their latest comments during a discussion with Fandango.
“Joe and I love filmmaking at every scale. We’ve made movies for as little money as you could possibly make movies for,” said Russo.
“We’ve made movies for as much money as you could possibly make movies for, and we love everything in between. We will someday, for sure, do a movie in that genre again. Probably in the not-too-distant future. Who it’s with we’re not able to say at this point, but yeah, we like challenging ourselves, we like finding new frontiers. So it’s a surprise to us where we’re going, and hopefully, it will be a surprise to audiences as well.”
ComicBook.com last year talked to Joe Russo about Netflix for Extraction’s premiere.
“We’ve talked to [Marvel chief creative officer] Kevin [Feige] and [Marvel Studios co-president] Lou [D’Esposito] all the time at Marvel. [Marvel Studios Executive Vice President of Production] Victoria [Alonso]. They’re all your friends of ours. Texting, seeing how everyone’s doing. We get together with Lou for regular dinners once a month and there are always conversations going on. I think, you know, when we all land on with the right project is for us all to team back upon what, we’ll jump in feet first for sure.”
The Russos are going to work with Chris Evans once again, and teaming up with him will be Ryan Gosling. The 2 A-listers are going to star in Netflix’s action-thriller movie called The Gray Man. After Evans left the MCU in Avengers Endgame, he has been starring in all sorts of different roles. First, he appeared in Netflix’s The Red Sea Diving Resort. Then we saw him in a totally different role in Knives Out. This year, he appeared in the Apple+ drama series called Defending Jacob. We were wondering that when exactly will Evans be taking on an action movie role where he plays a Spy or an Assassin. Chris Hemsworth keeps picking up such roles. Since we know that Evans is also capable of taking on those roles, the question always kept coming up in the back of our heads. Well, it has been answered now as Evans will be playing an Assassin alongside another versatile actor like him, Ryan Gosling.
Joe Russo has written the script for The Gray Man, but Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely will help in polishing the script. It is based on Mark Greaney’s novel of the same name, which was released in 2009. The reason we should be very excited about this film is that Netflix is allotting it a $200 Million budget. Ryan Gosling will play an assassin and a former CIA operative, Court Gentry, and Evans will portray Lloyd Hansen, who worked with Gosling when he was a CIA operative. A hundred bucks say that Evans will turn out to be the villain (just putting it out there). This film will begin production in January 2021. So, it will only arrive in 2022.
After Red Notice, this will perhaps turn out to be Netflix’s biggest movie. Other upcoming Netflix Originals that we’re already excited about are The Devil all the Time, Enola Holmes, Project Power, The Hulkamania, Extraction 2, Bright 2, 6 Underground sequels, and The Old Guard 2. Netflix is giving more reasons for us to love the streaming service every single day. Not only do they keep adding old content, but they launch more than 5 original shows and movies every month. They’ve generated an insane amount of revenue in the pandemic period as their streaming has increased by 85% since March. And they’re not just talking, but they’re also giving back to the community as they just announced that they won’t be charging those subscribers anymore who don’t watch the service but have been paying regularly through autopay. They stated want to be fair in every way, even if it means that they’ll have a hit on their revenue. So, let’s add this point to our list of 100 reasons why we love Netflix.
