Russo

Film Director

Russo and younger brother Joe can now boast that they are directors of the highest-grossing film ever, “Avengers: Endgame.” It’s the latest in a string of Marvel blockbusters they helmed over the last five years, including “Captain America: Winter Solider” (2014), “Captain America: Civil War” (2016) and “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018). It’s an interesting outcome for a duo that started out as comedy specialists, directing episodes of the series “Arrested Development” and “Community” and the features “Welcome to Collinwood” (2002) and “You, Me and Dupree” (2006). The Russos’ current slate has them producing a slew of projects — the heist movie “21 Bridges,” the ISIS thriller “Mosul” and the Netflix actioner “Dhaka” — and directing “Cherry,” about a PTSD-impacted Army medic turned bank robber.
