Published on September 6th, 2022 | Updated on September 6th, 2022 | By FanFest

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Avengers: Infinity War, are working on a television program that provides excitement to fans for the first time. The series, Citadel, is produced by Amazon Studios, but there have been several roadblocks along the way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “differences in vision” have caused approximately half of the creative team to leave the project, necessitating additional filming.

THR reported that the TV series would have a budget of $160 million or more and would consist of seven episodes, however additional funding has been added to the budget to complete reshoots, COVID Awareness, and other things, increasing the overall cost to around $200 million. After this Citadel becomes the second-most expensive television program ever made, behind another Amazon show called The Rings of Power.

When it comes to their prospective future with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Joe and Anthony Russo find themselves in an odd position, and it's all because of Secret Wars.

The Citadel features Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra Jonas in pivotal roles. The series can be described as an “Avengers-style spy show” that follows spies from multiple countries who come together for one important mission, with the goal of spinning off characters into their home countries stories set in places like India, Italy, and Mexico.

The difficulties began once filming concluded in December 2021, soon after which everything went sour. Following some early footage of the program, Amazon said, ” some reservations ” had been made. Furthermore, according to Russo Brothers, “parachuting on” as they become more focused on Netflix’s The Gray Man. All of the things that have been supplied did not go smoothly because of various “creative differences” between the Russo brothers and the writers Josh Appelbaum and Andrew Nemec.

The Russo Brothers reportedly had their own cut of the film, but Appelbaum and Nemec got Amazon’s instead, which was apparently much worse. Additionally, we will say about Appelbaum director Brian Kirk has directed five of the seven episodes along with the line producer Sarah Bradshaw and the others.

The THR story provides insights into the inner workings of Citadel. However, the franchise has not provided any updates on when the show or trailer will be released.
