Joe and Anthony Russo may have delivered the conclusion to the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga in Avengers: Endgame, but the directors may not be done with Marvel Studios just yet.
After receiving the award for Best Movie at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, Anthony Russo remained coy when asked he and his brother Joe were done with the MCU and if they had one Captain America story left to tell. During a post-ceremony interview, the filmmaker noted that while making Endgame, he and his brother were simply intent on creating a film that would serve as the culmination to the shared cinematic universe that began with 2008's Iron Man.

"One of the great things about this particular movie of the four movies we made for Marvel was, with Endgame, we were never thinking about the future," Anthony Russo explained. "Our job in the movie was to just bring the story, this 11-year journey, to the most satisfying climax and conclusion that we possibly could."
While the Russos have begun to line up future projects, including a Magic: The Gathering anime adaptation for Netflix, they had presumably left Marvel Studios on good terms, leaving open the possibility for their return. Joe Russo had previously mentioned an affinity for Doctor Doom and the Thing if he should ever return to helm a new project within the MCU.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Benedict Wong as Wong, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Josh Brolin as Thanos. The film is in theaters now.
