The Russo brothers, directors of Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and the latter two Captain America films, may be teasing the reveal of a Community
movie for Comic-Con 2019.On Friday, as reported by TV Guide, from their official Twitter account, the Russo brothers posted a short audio clip of the Biblioteca Spanish rap from season one, episode two of NBC’s Community, as performed by actors Donald Glover and Danny Pudi. The text “11:00 AM” accompanied the audio, suggesting the Russo brothers may reveal more at a later date. The time also lines up with their Comic-Con 2019 panel “A Conversation With the Russos Brothers.”
The description for the panel describes it as a retrospective from the Russo brothers on their journey through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what comes next.
“Come hear directors Joe and Anthony Russo reflect on Endgame and their epic road to it as they segue into life beyond Marvel with their new company, AGBO, which happens to include an exciting array of new and old creative friends,” the description reads. “With AGBO, the Russo Brothers aim to nurture talent and create best-in-class content while keeping creative control fully in the hands of the artists.”
Before the Russo brothers directed Marvel’s flagship superhero franchises, they individually directed and produced numerous episodes of Community. The sixth and supposedly final season concluded all the way back in June 2015. In 2016, Community creator Dan Harmon said a Community film “will happen.”
The Russo brothers managed to bring a number of Community stars into the mix in their various Marvel films, most notably Danny Pudi as a S.H.I.E.L.D. control tower technician in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Of course, the longtime reference among desperate Community fans is “six seasons and a movie.” No Community stars are currently officially scheduled to appear at Comic-Con this year, but Joel McHale tends to be a consistent presence each year.
