Marvel Studios just had a meeting of the minds. Guardians of the Galaxy franchise director James Gunn and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler were joined by Infinity War/Avengers 4 directors Joe and Anthony Russo and presumably other Marvel filmmakers at a gathering held this earlier afternoon.

Gunn mentioned a meeting with Marvel directors in his Instagram story today.

We do not know who all was at the meeting, but Gunn confirmed Ryan Coogler and the Russos were among the attendees in replies on Twitter.

So what was the meeting about? Is Gunn’s Infinity Gauntlet mug a hint?

Your guess is as good as mine, but the first idea that comes to mind is, “Wow! Marvel Studios directors are getting ready for the post-Avengers 4 MCU!”

That is a possibility. Gunn has already been working on the script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. That film is expected to be released in May 2020, making it the second film to be released by Marvel Studios after Avengers 4 (the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel will be the first in July 2019).

Ryan Coogler has not been officially confirmed for a Black Panther sequel, but we know Marvel wants him back. Perhaps Coogler has signed on for the sequel and is in the early stages of planning it out. Even if he hasn’t signed, he might want an update on where things are going to help him make a decision regarding his future involvement with the franchise.

The Russo Brothers’ presence is especially helpful for directors of future Marvel movies. It would be nice for them to know where their respective characters will be stand once the first 11 years and 22 films of the MCU culminate in the Russos’ Avengers 4.

Gunn confirmed Avengers 4 was at least one of the topics discussed and acknowledged that he’ll obviously have to deal with the events of that film and Infinity War in GotG Vol. 3.

What else could they have talked about? Remember that this year is Marvel Studios’ tenth anniversary, so this meeting could have been a private celebration held for the directors. It could also have been about some activity for the anniversary, like a video featurette or taped panel discussion to be attached to the Avengers: Infinity War Blu-ray (or a box set).

Perhaps Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige just wanted to hang out with his really cool friends.
