Joe and Anthony Russo are ready to redeploy. The sibling directing duo are set to helm the two-part superhero showdown “The Avengers: Infinity War,” Hero Complex has confirmed.

Plot details have yet to be revealed for the two films, set for release in 2018 and 2019, but they are expected to bring together an all-star roster of big-screen heroes (and villains) and mark the culmination of Marvel’s third wave of blockbusters.

The Russos are thus shaping up as the next architects of Marvel’s cinematic universe, having directed 2014’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and already signed on for “Captain America: Civil War,” due next year.

Badass Digest first reported news of the brothers boarding “Infinity War.”

They’ll take over stewardship of the franchise from Joss Whedon, who directed the original “Avengers” film and its sequel, “Age of Ultron,” opening May 1.
