Anthony Russo

Successful summer blockbusters can sometimes come from the most innocent places. Anthony Russo, along with his brother and co-director Joe, carved a niche in directing cult TV shows and the occasional comedy movie. After working on shows such as "Community" (NBC 2009-14; Yahoo!, 2015) and "Arrested Development" (FOX 2003-2005, Netflix 2013), Russo and his brother were contacted by Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige to direct the blockbuster "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (2014) despite never directing an action movie before. Feige had faith in the two brothers, and the faith paid off to an enormous box-office success with glowing reviews.
