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.
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.
