Avengers: Endgame directors Anthony and Joe Russo will attend San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and hold their very own panel. The Russo brothers got their start with the Marvel Cinematic Universe with 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier and have since become some of the biggest directors in all of Hollywood. It helps that all four of their MCU outings are incredibly well-received and successful at the box office.
A clear example of this is Avengers: Endgame, a movie that boasts excellent reviews for its ability to tie up the first eleven years of the MCU, and one that fans responded to as it is the second highest-grossing movie of all-time as of now. However, the film also left open plenty of doors for future MCU films to go through, and SDCC may be the place where Marvel Studios announces what is next for them. Those plans won't include the Russo brothers, but they will be present at the convention for their very own panel.
The Russo brothers will have a career conversation panel at SDCC next month, called "A Conversation With the Russo Brothers," hosted by Collider's Editor-in-Chief Steven Weintraub. The panel is on Friday, July 19 and begins at 11am in Hall H. Their mega-hit Avengers: Endgame will be discussed as part of this panel, but so too will their plans for the future.
For fans of Avengers: Endgame and the MCU, any interview with the Russo brothers is something to keep an eye on as they could reveal some new piece of information at any time. This will likely make this panel a hot commodity at SDCC, and the Hall H location indicates all parties involved believe they'll have a shot at largely filling out the 7,000-seat hall. By this point, the Avengers: Endgame re-release will already be in theaters and Spider-Man: Far From Home will also be out, so the Russos could be free to reveal some new insights to the decisions they made or their time with Marvel Studios.
Of course, the MCU and Avengers: Endgame is just a piece of the Russo brothers' filmography, and they are preparing for life outside of the shared universe. They've launched their production studio, AGBO, and have several films in the works involving MCU stars. 21 Bridges, starring Chadwick Boseman, arrives this fall, and Dhaka, starring Chris Hemsworth, wrapped filming. They'll direct Tom Holland again in Cherry, which begins production this year, and have a variety of other movies and TV shows in the works - such as Netflix's Magic the Gathering animated series. With so much to discuss, this panel could be packed with updates on the state of these various AGBO productions.
