Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, the writers of Avengers: Infinity War and other Marvel Studios films, appeared on Kevin Smith's Fatman on Batman podcast, where they took aim at a very different cinematic universe - Warner Bros.' DC Comics based films.

The writing duo offered their thoughts on a direction for the DC Extended Universe, saying they'd focus on some lesser explored DC Comics characters.

“I might put Batman and Superman and everybody else, I mean Wonder Woman is doing fine, aside for a second," said Markus. "Go through the vast world and go, ‘That guy’ or ‘That girl,’ and go, ‘Let’s just make a really good movie and not a universe and see what happens.’ There’s a lot of spaghetti being thrown at the wall."

Markus and McFeely also wrote Avengers 4, the still officially untitled sequel to Infinity War, and offered an update on the film's progress.

“Status of Avengers 4 is that we shot it, but it’s not due for a while,” explained McFeely. “There’s time for reshoots and fixing and we’re just scrubbing through it now. The Russo brothers have been in there for a few weeks now after the press tour and all that. And the whole team is getting together tomorrow.”

Here's the entire conversation:

Avengers 4 is due out in theaters May 3, 2019.
