Avengers: Endgame directors the Russo brothers may be done with the Marvel universe (for now), but they’ve revealed what it would take for them to come back.

The pair directed a number of outings in the MCU, culminating in this year’s Avengers blockbuster, and admitted that they could be enticed back by the X-Men or Fantastic Four.

That’s certainly a possibility now in the wake of the Disney-Fox merger, and the Russos explained that the X-Men were a big part of their growing-up.

“I grew on up [John] Byrne’s X-Men run. Ben Grimm was a favourite character growing up, the Thing. And Fantastic Four is now in the Marvel fold. There’s a lot,” Joe told SYFY.

“Silver Surfer is an amazing character. Going really big in cosmic would be a lot of fun. So there’s a lot of things that could attract us.”

Joe added that if they were to return, it would be for a multi-movie arc on the scale of Avengers rather than something smaller-scale.

“I think after you go on the journey that we went on – because there is a comprehensive narrative, an overarching story from Winter Soldier all the way to the end of Endgame that involves Tony and Cap, through Civil War, through Infinity War – I think that scale of ambition in storytelling is a bug that’s bit us,” he continued.

“And we’re compelled to tell more stories on that scale, with that sort of years-long ambition to them.”

The Russos have previously said they would be interested in returning to the MCU for something related to Fantastic Four and X-Men.

Avengers: Endgame is out now on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D, 4K and digital download.
