MCU filmmakers describe their personal experience of directing their Marvel films

The much anticipated DCEU film Justice League underperformed at the box office. The film was riddled with controversy and also had a director's dispute. Ever since then many fans have demanded to see the original version of Justice League as directed by Zack Snyder. Recently HBO announced that they will be releasing the Snyder cut for the public to watch.

Now in another interview director Joe Russo has opened about up about his experience of directing other superhero films for the MCU. Joe said, "I think it’s always great when a director’s original vision can find its way to the screen. We have been very, very fortunate in our careers that everything we did for Marvel, we would call our director’s cuts. They were very gracious and deferential, and very supportive of our vision for those movies, and nothing is sitting on the editing room floor that we suddenly want back into those films. We worked very hard at what the current cut of those movies are, so we’re very fortunate to have released our director’s cut on all four of those films."
The Russo Brothers have directed four separate films for the MCU. Their directorial debut began with Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The directors later made Captain America: Civil War, and also Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Avengers Endgame went on to become the most successful film at the box office ever. Endgame crossed the box office collections of Avatar and became the highest-grossing film ever.
