Avengers: Endgame will be the final instalment in the MCU phase 3 and promises to be an epic finale of the franchise that was started more than 10 years ago, with the release of the first Iron Man movie in 2008. The next and final chapter in this awesome storyline will soon hit cinemas and the Avengers: Endgame runtime has now reportedly been revealed.
If you’re a fan of getting lots of drinks at the movies, then you might want to hold your order when you watch the newest Marvel movie, with the Avengers: Endgame runtime apparently being longer than 3 hours. 3 hours and 2 minutes to be exact, according to a new report. If the Avengers: Endgame runtime does hit the 182-minute mark, it will become the longest Marvel movie yet. It’s predecessor, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War was 2 hours 40 minutes long, which would make the speculated runtime of the upcoming movie 22 minutes longer. To further put this monumental Marvel movie’s runtime into perspective, the latest Marvel movie to be released, Captain Marvel had a runtime of 2 hours 2 minutes.
This new report, if true, will confirm previous speculations that the Avengers: Endgame runtime will clock in at over three hours. The directors of the movie, Joe and Anthony Russo, have stated that Avengers: Endgame “feels like three hours worth of real estate“.
[T]his is a culmination film of 22 movies, it’s a lot of storytelling to work into it. Emotion is an intrinsic part of that to us. When you have to tell a really complicated story and you want strong emotional moments with the characters, it just requires a certain amount of real estate. This one, in particular, feels like three hours worth of real estate.
The longest ever superhero movie was DC’s Ultimate Edition of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which has a runtime of 3 hours and 3 minutes. If the reports are true about the Avengers: Endgame runtime, then the upcoming Marvel movie manages to lose the top spot by 1 minute.
Whatever the Avengers: Endgame runtime, it promises to be a highly dramatic and emotional movie, with Marvel recently revealing the movie’s synopsis.
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.
