      Joe Russo

      Joe Russo

      Highest Rated: 94% Everything Everywhere All at Once (2022)

      Lowest Rated: 14% A Merry Friggin' Christmas (2014)

      Birthday: Jul 18, 1971

      Birthplace: Cleveland, Ohio, USA

      Successful summer blockbusters can sometimes come from the most innocent places. Joe Russo, along with his brother and co-director Anthony, first made their names by directing cult TV shows and the occasional low-budget indie comedy. After working on shows such as "Community" (NBC 2009-15; Yahoo!, 2015) and "Arrested Development" (FOX 2003-2005, Netflix 2013- ), Russo and his brother were contacted by Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige to direct "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (2014) despite never directing an action movie before. Feige had faith in the two brothers, and the faith paid off to a big box-office success that also garnered considerable critical acclaim.
