The Russo Brothers Are Still Trolling Marvel Fans Hard With New Tease

Thanos in Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has recruited a lot of talented filmmakers over the years, but Joe and Anthony Russo are arguably the heaviest hitters of that select group, having delivered four of the most important entries in the franchise, Avengers: Endgame most recently. It goes without saying then that their panel at San Diego Comic-Con is a highly anticipated event, and the Russos are continuing to troll Marvel fans about what to expect with this latest tweet.

The Russos first began teasing what’s in store for their San Diego Comic-Con panel this Friday with audio from the 2017 Comic-Con when footage from the then-upcoming Avengers: Infinity War was screened for the people in Hall H. Naturally this led some folks to wonder if the directing duo would show some never-before-seen footage from their past Marvel movies.

However, that was then followed by another tweet containing audio from the TV series Community, which the Russos worked on before joining the MCU, and today we receive a third tweet containing audio from Arrested Development, another major TV credit on their resumes. In case you can’t listen to the above tweet, it’s Jeffrey Tambor’s Oscar Bluth saying:

How much clearer than I say? There’s always money in the banana stand!

Classic stuff. While it goes without saying that the Russos’ Comic-Con panel will cover their time at Marvel, it’s looking like rather than exclusively focusing on that, it’ll touch on other areas of their careers. With four more days to go until their panel, now I’m waiting for a fourth tweet that’ll include audio from their 2006 movie You, Me and Dupree.

Given that Marvel Studios is holding its own massive Hall H panel this Saturday, it’s incredibly unlikely that some massive piece of MCU-related news will be announced during the Russos panel. That said, it’s possible some juicy tidbits from their time working on Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Just don’t expect the entire panel to revolve around the franchise.

It’s also worth mentioning that Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed earlier this year that Avengers: Endgame is their final MCU movie (at least for now), and have now turned their attention to other projects, including movies like Dhaka and Cherry (both of which see them collaborating again with MCU talent) and a Magic: The Gathering TV series for Netflix. Perhaps a big announcement regarding one of those will be part of the panel too.

Joe and Anthony Russo’s San Diego Comic-Con panel will be at Hall H this Friday at 11 a.m., so those of you attending the convention, best of luck you’ll be able to grab a seat for the event. As for what’s ahead for the MCU, look through our comprehensive guide for that information.
