Avengers: Infinity War directors Joe and Anthony Russo confirmed that X-Men and Deadpool characters would meet the Avengers, though the time was yet to be determined.

"We haven't talked to him about when that will happen," Joe Russo said, as quoted in CNET. Russo was referring to Disney’s CEO Bob Iger, as he spoke at the Business Insider Ignition conference in New York, the United States, on Tuesday.

However, Russo was sure that Disney would bring the Marvel Cinematic Universe together with 21st Century Fox' X-Men and Deadpool, after the two companies merged.

Joe and Anthony Russo have directed three Marvel movies, including Avengers: Infinity War, which is the fourth highest grossing movie ever. They are also the directors of its as yet untitled upcoming sequel, commonly referred to as Avengers 4. (iru/wng)
