Last year, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige had said that they are planning to make a standalone on superhero Ms Marvel aka Kamala Khan. After the news broke, many fans on social media expressed their desire to see Priyanka playing the character of Marvel's first Muslim superhero.

Russo is currently in India to promote the MCU's much-awaited superhero ensemble, "Endgame", which will hit the theatres on April 26.

The filmmaker said as an action director Indian films like "Dabangg" series were an interesting watch for him.

"I'm an action director so I saw 'Dabangg' many years ago and then 'Dabangg 2'. I thought the camera work was great in these films. The tone and the energy is also great. So, I certainly know Salman Khan," he added.

Russo also revealed that the climax of Marvel's 2015 film "Avengers: Age of Ultron" almost had a scene inspired by Rajinikanth's 2010 blockbuster "Robot" ("Enthiran").

"'Robot' almost influenced the climatic moments in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'... In one of the final scenes all the Ultrons were suppose to form a large Ultron and Avengers were set to fight that but the sequence got cut for time. It was this close. I was inspired directly by 'Robot'," he added.

"Avengers: Endgame" marks the final film within the Marvel Cinematic Universe's current generation. It comprises 22 films, including "Spider-Man: Homecoming" and recently released "Captain Marvel".

The movie features an ensemble cast of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper, Tessa Thompson and Josh Brolin.

The film will release in India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, with a special theme song composed by music maestro AR Rahman.
