After conquering the superhero genre as the directors of a quartet of Marvel blockbusters culminating in 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame,” the highest-grossing film ever, and co-writing Netflix’s most watched original movie (2020’s “Extraction”), Russo and younger brother Joe are now set to take on the super-spy genre with “The Gray Man,” pitting Ryan Gosling and Chris Evans against each other as master assassins. Budgeted at $200 million-plus, it’s poised to be Netflix’s most expensive project ever, with the streamer also picking up “Mosul,” an actioner about ISIS they produced. In the meantime, they have jumped back into the superhero milieu with “Slugfest,” a Quibi docuseries examining the Marvel/DC Comics rivalry and one of the last shows to air on the mobile streamer before its December demise. The duo is also attached to produce a live-action remake of Disney’s 1997 animated hit “Hercules.”
