While The Game Awards has a long list of developers and video game industry luminaries on its guest list, the show is also bringing two major movie directors onto the stage. It was announced today via Twitter that Joe and Anthony Russo will be present at The Game Awards, but it’s not clear in what capacity.
Anthony and Joe Russo are likely best known for their work on Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, like Captain America movies Winter Soldier and Civil War, as well as Avengers: Infinity War and the next Avengers movie next year. They also directed a number of episodes of the TV comedy Community.
The Russos are no strangers to gaming. The brothers are a fan of Fortnite and managed to convince Epic to add Thanos into a limited-time event for the game. It raises the question of what the pair might have for The Game Awards. Are they simply showing up for the festivities or do they plan to introduce another Fortnite event? Could this be the reveal of Square Enix’s Avengers game from Crystal Dynamics? Or perhaps even the rumored first Avengers 4 trailer?
We’ll find out for sure on December 6.
