Joe and Anthony Russo are hosting a panel at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and it may include some Avengers: Endgame cast members. Partnering up with writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to wrap-up the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga with Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, the Russos are among the most important creative figures behind the franchise. And fans can continue to pick their brains regarding the process of making the twin Avengers sequels at Comic-Con.
Boarding the MCU via Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Russo Brothers went on two direct three more entries in the film series including Captain America: Civil War, Infinity War and Endgame. And for the most part, their contributions to the franchise are hits both with critics and the masses. Endgame, in particular has grossed more than $2.7 billion worldwide, and is generally praised for culminating the overarching narrative that the MCU unfolded since 2008's Iron Man, not to mention sending off some of the franchise's most beloved characters in a satisfying way. Two months after its release, the mass conversation about the film will continue at least until the middle of the summer.
Deadline reports that Joe and Anthony Russo will be hosting their own Hall H Panel at SDCC on Friday, July 19. Moderated by Collider editor-in-chief Steve Weintraub, it'll be primarily focused on the directors' AGBO Studios, but will also include a discussion about Endgame. Cast members could even ultimately make an appearance to join the duo in doing so. As a tease for the event, the Russos posted an image of Comic-Con's iconic logo on their Twitter account. Check it out below.
If the Endgame cast doesn't appear at the Russos' panel, the report implies that they might show up during Marvel's own panel the next day. If MCU fans can't get into either of those panels, they can attend Markus and McFeely's panel, hosted by Jeff Goldsmith on July 19 as well. After skipping SDCC last year, there's high expectations for anything Marvel at this year's Comic-Con. Aside from these panels, rumor has it that Marvel Studios will make some pivotal announcement regarding the future of the franchise, including some key casting, and of course, their upcoming slate.
Seeing the Russos sit down with some of the Avengers: Endgame cast members and openly discuss the film would be something fans haven't seen before. Instead, the directors mostly went on interviews by themselves or with the writers. It's uncertain which actors might make an appearance, since most of them are busy with their next projects, but it'll be epic if the principal MCU cast makes it to Hall H again, regardless of the panel. Some of them haven't been on a Comic-Con panel for years now, and coming back for SDCC to commemorate their decade-plus journey with the fans would be a great way to celebrate their respective runs in the franchise.
