Russo Brothers attended a QnA event organised by Collider where they spoke at length about Avengers: Infinity War
Directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that they would be taking a break from superhero films after Avengers 4 in a QnA sessions conducted after an exclusive screening of Avengers: Infinity War by Collider.
When asked that if they were ready to reconsider their break after Disney’s upcoming acquisition of the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and other character rights from Fox, they said "Not until they’re ready to make Secret Wars". Secret Wars is a 1984 crossover comic book series featuring almost every Marvel superhero and supervillain. The twelve-issue comic book limited series was written by Jim Shooter with art by Mike Zeck and Bob Layton.

He also said that the mission of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is to keep expanding and surprising people. "If we’re moving into this world of crossover events, certainly that affords opportunity for other large-scale stories from the books like Secret Wars — which was another favorite comic of mine as a kid. There’s big potential moving forward if the Fox/Disney deal closes," he stated.
Avengers 4 is all set to hit theatres in May 2019.
