AVENGERS: ENDGAME Directors "Always Open" To The Possibility Of Helming Marvel Studios' X-MEN Reboot

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have made no secret of the fact that they're big X-Men fans, and it sounds like they'd be interested in helming the planned reboot should the opportunity arise.

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo have spoken about their love of the X-Men in the past, which has inevitably led to the pair being asked about the possibility of helming Marvel Studios' planned reboot during interviews.

We still don't know if The Russos have had any official conversations about the prospect of returning to The MCU, but they clearly remain intrigued by the notion of bringing the Children of the Atom to this shared world.

While speaking to AP Entertainment, the filmmakers were once again quizzed about the "rumor" that they might be in line to direct a new X-Men movie.

"One of my prized possessions is Incredible Hulk #181, which is the first appearance of Wolverine," Joe Russo responded. "It's an important part of my comic book collection. Wolverine being so essential to the X-Men, of course, that would be a fun project to work on and find a new way into it."

"But, I do think that that's probably something that Kevin Feige has rightfully put aside for a while to introduce some new characters to the world, and bring that back when it's ready," he added.

Kingsman star Taron Egerton confirmed that he'd met with Feige about possibly suiting-up as Logan, but it remains to be seen if anything comes of their discussion.

We still have no idea how Feige and co. plan to incorporate mutants into The MCU, or whether this mysterious X-Men project will be a movie or Disney+ series. Fans assumed Professor Xavier's (Sir Patrick Stewart) cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness might lay the groundwork for more mutant characters to debut, but it's looking increasingly likely that The Illuminati's involvement in the sequel really was little more than fan-service.

Even if The Russos do decide to work on another Marvel Studios project, the majority of fans appear to be hoping to see them take the helm of Secret Wars (which is rumored to be the next big MCU event).

What do you guys think? Would you like to see Joe and Anthony Russo take charge of the elusive X-Men reboot? Drop us a comment down below.
