The director of Avengers: Endgame, Joe Russo, has revealed that he thinks a Community movie is going to happen sometime in the not-so-distant future.
Joe and Anthony Russo directed episodes of sitcoms like Community and Arrested Development before behind handed the keys to the MCU.
They ended up directing Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
However, they caught Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige’s eye with their work on Community and Arrested Development.
Roe Russo was recently chatting about the possibility of a Community movie during a recent interview with Collider.
This was when he revealed that he’s pretty sure it’ll happen one day.
“We’d certainly be willing to do it. We love our Community family,” Russo revealed.
“That cast, we’re all still very close to all of them. It’d certainly be schedule-depending for us. But I believe there will be a Community movie, especially now that it’s doing so well on streaming. Someone like Netflix could step up and make that movie.”
Sounds like there might be a Community movie
“I don’t think you’d want to see it with a really big budget,” he continued.
“Part of what is so compelling about the show is that it’s very quaint, it’s Greendale as an underdog. I don’t think you’d want to suddenly execute it with crazy high production value and set design. Unless we were going somewhere fantastical or doing one of our genre exploration concepts. But I think you’d easily pull that movie off for a budget.”
It seems as though interest in Community has resurfaced after the show landed on Netflix.
I’ve been rewatching it myself and having a great time.
There was also all that talk about ‘Six Seasons And A Movie’ when Community was coming to an end.
It looks like they might be able to do it all.
