Well, It’s official. Marvel finally put the word out that the one’s to take on their Infinity War films will be Anthony and Joe Russo. Pretty straight-forward press release, but you can read a part of it below.

If you don’t know these guys, you do know of one of their most successful films in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. A film that was one of the highest grossing films in 2014 and is considered by many to be Marvel’s best movie to date. In addition, they are also the currently at the helm for next year’s follow-up film Captain America: Civil War.
These talks have been going on for quite some time with whispers as recent as two weeks ago that the deal had been sealed. It is only now that there is some confirmation amid all the rumors. Filming has just begun for Captain America: Civil War so don’t expect to see anything regarding the two-part film for some time.
Captain America: Civil War is headed to theaters on May 6, 2016 while Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1 is schedule to release May 4, 2018 with the second to be expected almost one year later on May 3, 2019.
