After being at the helm for both this and the first film in the Marvel series, Avengers Assemble (2012), director and writer Joss Whedon has announced he’s stepping away from the franchise.  The next two instalments – Avengers:Infinity War, parts 1 and 2, due in 2018 and 2019, will be in the hands of Anthony and Joe Russo, who also directed Captain America:The Winter Soldier (2014).
