The Film Censorship Board (LSF) has confirmed that moviegoers in Indonesia will see a shorter version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe film "Avengers: Infinity War" after the agency cut seven minutes from the Marvel Studio release.

The LSF chairman Ahmad Yani Basuki said that he had signed off on the blockbuster movie being trimmed.

"I have not seen it yet, but it is my signature indeed, I don't know exactly what was revised to this movie. But in general, there's not too many films that are revised," he said as quoted by kompas.com.

The LSF website gives detail about the soon-to-be-released film by saying that the run time of "Avengers: Infinity War" for Indonesian theaters clocks in at 149 minutes, seven minutes shorter than the film's official 156-minute duration.

Yani said that local distributor of the film, PT Omega Film would comply to the LSF's decision.

"They understand and accept the decision. But in case they want to challenge the decision, we can have a dialogue," Yani said.

“Avengers: Infinity War” is the third movie to be released revolving around Marvel’s superhero team. The first Avengers movie came out in 2012, followed by 2015’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which both garnered success in the box office.

The movie will hit local theaters on April 25.
