The Russo Brothers are working hard and they are not letting anything stop them! They are now teaming up with Netflix to create an animated original series called Magic: The Gathering which is based on the fantasy game. The Russos will oversee the creation of an all new storyline and “expand on the stories of the Planeswalkers, which are Magic’s magic-wielding heroes and villains.”
The Russo Brothers expressed, “We have been huge fans and players of Magic: The Gathering for as long as it has been around, so being able to help bring these stories to life through animation is a true passion project for us.”
They are making history with the success of their films including the second highest grossing film of all time, Avengers: Endgame. We look forward to seeing what else the Russo Brothers will do in the film industry!
