Russo Brothers Say It Would Be "Tragic" Not to Do a Community Movie

The Avengers: Endgame filmmakers, who cut their teeth on TV comedies like Arrested Development and Community, said during a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" interview that it would be "tragic" if, after six seasons spent largely on the cancellation bubble, the "movie" part of "six seasons and a movie" didn't happen.

That puts them in agreement with various members of the Community cast, who have all endorsed the idea. The Russos got fans worked up last month when they used audio from a Community episode to promote their panel at Comic Con International in San Diego.

"It would be really tragic if we couldn't complete the '...and a movie, part of that hashtag," Joe Russo wrote. "So one would hope..."

Series star Alison Brie recently said she'd love to see the long-gestating Community movie actually come to fruition, possibly on Netflix.

"Yeah, I think I would," Brie revealed. "I mean, look, it's like, are we going to do the movie? I feel like if the Community movie ever gets made, it should just be made for Netflix, and it would be fun to do, but, I think it would be best if we could get everyone to do it, so I feel like that might be difficult."

Community ran for five seasons on NBC before being cancelled, then completed its TV run on the now-defunct Yahoo! Screen service. During that run, a throw-away joke about how Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi) wanted the short-lived NBC series The Cape to get "six seasons and a movie" morphed into a mission statement for the series on the part of creator Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty) and fans of the show. The Russos directed several episodes, including a hugely-ambitious season finale that turned a friendly game of paintball into a harrowing war movie.

Spider-Man: Far From Home is still in theaters, and Avengers: Endgame was just made available on digital services. Upcoming Marvel Studios projects include Black Widow on May 1, 2020, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in Fall 2020, The Eternals on November 6, 2020, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on February 12, 2021, WandaVision in Spring 2021, Loki in Spring 2021, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on May 7, 2021, What If…? in Summer 2021, Hawkeye in Fall 2021, and Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021.
