At the time of this writing, we are approximately 31 days away from the release of one of the most anticipated events in cinematic history, Avengers: Endgame. According to AMC Theaters, fans are in for over 3 hours of action and heartbreak.
The 22nd film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is likely to clock in at 3 hours and 2 minutes, making it the longest film in the entire MCU catalog. While the runtime has yet to be confirmed by Marvel, it is likely.
Fans have been clamoring for the conclusion of the epic 11-year saga since the final moments of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, which saw The Mad Titan Thanos decimate more than half of the heroes looking to stop him. The ramifications have been felt across the board in films like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel, however, the powers-that-be over at Marvel Studios have been rather tight-lipped about just how the story will end.
The length makes sense given the epic feel of the film. With several possible elements like time travel being introduced, 3 hours and two minutes might not be enough in the long run.
What do you think of the extended film? Let us know in the comments below.
Go see the epic conclusion of the Infinity Saga, in theaters April 26, 2019.
