Joe and Anthony Russo entered the Marvel film universe with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, one of the top-grossing films of 2014. The brothers recently directed the third film in the franchise, the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, which brings the classic storyline from the comics to life, pitting Cap (Chris Evans) against Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.).

In conversation with NPR’s Linda Holmes, the directors discuss their experience in translating the adventures of the iconic superhero from the page to the screen.

Before stepping behind the camera for the Captain America series, the Russos served as executive producers and directors for several TV series, including Community and Happy Endings, and earned a Primetime Emmy for directing the pilot episode of the cult hit Arrested Development. Their film debut was 2002’s Welcome to Collinwood, produced by Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney.
