What is Avengers: Endgame Directors Working On?
We know the Russo Brothers have taken a break from the Marvel Universe now, but that doesn’t in any way mean that we shouldn’t be expecting any further works from them.

Another famous Russo Brother movie was Netflix’s big action-thriller movie starring Chris ‘Thor’ Hemsworth Extraction. The brothers have also been a part of the brand new Fortnite teaser.
Why did the Brothers Take a Break from Marvels?
The Russo Brothers have recently announced their departure from the Marvel franchise after it for seven long years. Even though they call their association with it an enjoyable venture, they did express that it was hard and immersive. The biggest relief of Endgame was that they wouldn’t have to carry forward with the story anymore.
They enjoyed telling the Marvel stories, starting from Captain America: The Winter Soldier to Avengers: Endgame, but they understood that it was time to try something different. Hence, they decided to take a break and explore other projects.
