Despite moving on from their time with Marvel, the Russo Brothers still had an absolutely packed panel on Friday. The cast of Avengers: Endgame sent in video messages asking the duo questions before they turned their eyes to the future of their production company, AGBO.
The brothers revealed that they will be tackling two adaptations with AGBO right off the bat. First, Grimjack, a graphic novel the brothers read in their youths. Grimjack was a comic series created by John Ostrander and Tim Truman published by First Comics. The series followed the titular character, a sellsword who lived and worked in a world where magic and technology both exist together.
The other property the brothers plan on adapting is the late-70s animated series Battle of the Planets. It was an American version of a Japanese anime called, Gatchaman. The series centers on five young people who make up the team G-Force. G-Force protects the Earth from otherworldly threats, specifically from the planet Spectra.
Anthony Russo commented briefly on the impact Battle of the Planets had on him. “I would race home from school just to watch this at 4 p.m.” And, I don’t know about y’all but this show sounds a lot like another franchise they just wrapped up in epic fashion. So, it seems like Battle of the Planets is right in their wheelhouse.
The brothers won’t be directing Grimjack but left the possibility open for Battle of the Planets. No release date or official plot info has been released for either project. They ended their panel by showing off a brand new trailer for 21 Bridges, another film produced by AGBO.
Up next for the brothers, they’ll be directing Tom Holland in Cherry, a drama that will take on the opioid crisis.
