Exciting news from the Marvel Universe! Shawn Levy has emerged as the frontrunner to direct the highly anticipated “Avengers 5.” According to Deadline (source), the project is in its nascent stages, with Marvel Studios and Levy currently in discussions. The latest script was delivered to Levy just last week, though insiders suggest other directors are also under consideration.

A look back at March reveals that Marvel had initially offered Levy the directing role, but he declined due to a busy schedule. At the time, he was neck-deep in commitments for “Deadpool & Wolverine,” slated for a July 26 release, while also managing executive producer duties and directing two episodes of the final season of “Stranger Things.” However, whispers from inside sources indicate that Marvel has now delayed “Avengers 5” by several months, potentially aligning with Levy’s availability.

This development underscores Marvel’s keenness to collaborate with Levy again, hinting at the successful partnership they experienced on “Deadpool & Wolverine.”
