Avengers: Endgame, which is the finale of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will also be the longest at 182 minutes. At 3 hours, 2 minutes runtime, Endgame is expected to break its predecessor's records, Avengers: Infinity War which had a runtime of 2 hours and 29 minutes, while Avengers: Age of Ultron came a few minutes shy of that, at 2 hours and 21 minutes.
The news about the film's length was broken by theatre websites AMC and Fandango.
"3 hours, 2 minutes. #AvengersEndgame," tweeted Fandango on Monday.
Marvel head Kevin Fiege had hinted at the runtime in an interview to Collider earlier this month, without dropping the main course.
"We're gonna release the movie at the exact right running time. I'm telling you this, it's gonna be perfect. It's gonna be the exact running time that the movie needs to be.?
"In all seriousness, we don't look at run times in terms of mandates, or anything like that. Every movie should feel like it's an hour and 45 minutes. Now, some movies can be 90 minutes and feel like they're four hours. And some movies can be three and a half hours and feel like 90 minutes. So for us, that's what it... It's, how does it feel?' And every version of Endgame' thus far, and the ones that we're honing in on, feel very good.?
The film, directed by Russo Brothers releases on April 26 stars bank A-listers like Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper, Josh Brolin, and Dave Bautista among others. Brie Larson, who debuted as Marvel's first female superhero Captain Danvers in Captain Marvel will also join the remaining Avengers crew to take on the supervillain Thanos, who had in Infinity War expunged half of the Earth's population.
