According to sources close to the outlet, Levy has not yet responded to Marvel regarding his readiness to assume the responsibility of the director’s role. Until then, the studio will hold meetings with other directors. Nevertheless, Michael Waldron’s recent draft of the script is supposedly what Levy has been given to consider. 

According to a different report by THR, Levy declined an offer from Marvel in mid-March to serve as executive producer and director of Netflix’s Stranger Things (the last season), which will air in the upcoming year. But it looks like the studio has pushed back Avengers 5 by a few months, which means Levy can rejoin the fray.

With more than 60 MCU characters reported to make an appearance, Avengers 5 is shaping up to be one of Marvel’s largest productions to date. The ensemble nature of the film promises to put an array of heroes on equal footing, creating a truly epic and unforgettable experience for fans.
