Fans have anticipated that it will be a long one, but Avengers: Endgame may break Marvels records, rumored as it is to clock in at the three-hour runtime mark.

The upcoming box office plunderer is heading to cinemas on April 26 and one of the biggest questions from Marvel fans is just how long it will take for the Russo brothers to unfold the plot. 

“We’re still at the three-hour mark,” Joe Russo said, in an interview with Collider. The directors noted that editing of the film is still underway, however Disney is open to air a three-hour epic. 

In November last year, the Russo brothers announced that they were halfway through the editing process when they realized Endgame sat at the three-hour mark.

It is expected Endgame will run longer than the previous Avengers blockbuster, Infinity War, which ran for two hours and 40 minutes. 

There is talk of an intermission for the film, however the Russos are certain that this won’t be necessary. “We have screened the movie four times for audiences now,” Anthony Russo told Collider. “For the first three screenings, not a single person got up to go to the bathroom.” (geo/kes)
