The Russo Brothers choose Priyanka over Deepika for the next Captain Marvel
After the success of The Gray Man, the Russo Brothers are deeply moved and overwhelmed by the love of the people. With the south star Dhanush being a part of the ensemble cast, his fans are quite thrilled to see him in the action drama. While the makers of the show are already producing Priyanka’s first web show, Citadel, recently she was asked to choose between Priyanka and Deepika Padukone.
During their recent trip to India for the premiere of Netflix’s The Gray Man, the two were asked to choose between Priyanka and Deepika Padukone as the next Captain Marvel. And looks like the duo’s reply left fans stunned as they confessed to being a huge fan of the global icon.
One of Priyanka’s fan pages on Instagram shared a video of the recent press conference in Mumbai for The Gray Man, in which the Russo Brothers were present along with Dhanush. In a candid conversation, when he was asked to choose between Priyanka and Deepika Padukone as the next Captain Marvel, he said, “We have to choose Priyanka. (We) are huge fans, big fans. we are very good friends. We are working on a project. We are producing a show, the Citadel.
This is not the first time the two have expressed their love for The White Tiger star. Earlier, during their interview, the Russo Brothers praised Priyanka’s brilliant craft and said, she is an incredible star. I mean I think she’s been amazing. We just read a table of the show a few days back and it was fantastic.
Priyanka wrapped up the shooting of Citadel a few weeks back. Talking to Collider about the show, he had said in December last year, “I think there is nothing like a Citadel on television. It’s very high scale, very clever action and stunts, but at the same time it is a drama and it has heart. So, I think there’s really nothing like it on TV right now and that’s one of the big reasons why I really wanted to do it. Doing something for several episodes… you know it’s a commitment.
Meanwhile, after the success of The Gray Man on Netflix, the online streaming platform is planning to create a major spy franchise for it. The action film is set to return with Ryan Gosling, and directors Joe and Anthony Russo helming the project. The Gray Man is based on the book series by Mark Graney and stars Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, Dhanush, Ana de Armas, Reggae-Jean Page and others in the lead roles.
