Marvel movies aren’t just licenses to print money for Disney lately. They’re also platforms for new talent to emerge, especially behind the camera. Before Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit screens, Anthony and Joe Russo were known for helming several tight episodes of Community and a short film that was literally called Carf*ckers. Now? They’re Marvel’s hottest creative team, directing not one but two Avengers movies next. The same could be said for James Gunn, who despite having directed the creepy and fantastic Slither had yet to become a household name. The list goes on and on, with two new names joining the mighty Marvel library this week: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
