Directors Say That Avengers: Endgame Is Likely To Be Three Hours Long

Directors Say That Avengers: Endgame Is Likely To Be Three Hours Long

If you're the kind of person that likes a snack or two while you're watching a film at the cinema, make sure you're prepared for watching Avengers: Endgame. And by prepared I mean with your lunch or dinner because it's set to be a lengthy number.

Three hours to be precise. Well, that is according to the estimations of co-directors, Joe and Anthony Russo. But let's face it, it's probably going to be worth every single minute. Well, we hope so because it's 180 you'll never get back. Then another 20 for the ads.

After Thanos' massacre in the two and a half hour long Avengers: Infinity War, fans are expecting to see the remaining Avengers undo the hard work with what we can only imagine to be some outrageously complex plan in place to overturn all this, or else the MCU is going to look very different in future.

And said complex story-line may take some time to tell as Joe and Anthony Russo acknowledged when they explained that one of the most recent edits stretched beyond three hours.

Joe said: "There's a high probably that this movie will clock in at around three hours. It's a big movie with a lot of story."

This isn't the first time they've given the film this potential running time. Back in May Joe told Collider: "It's pretty long. I don't want to say how long it is because people tend to get really excited. Also, I don't know that you can really call it a rough cut, it's more of an assembly."

He added: "I'll say it could easily be a three-hour film. But I think that, you know, we're very hard on the material. We like it to play at a certain pace. Uh... I... you know, I'm sure that we'll squeeze it.

"I can't imagine... We have a whole year of work left on that movie. I do think it will be longer than Avengers 3 [Infinity War], but it's clearly impossible to say."

Infinity War was released in the UK on April 26 and people up and down the country were losing their shit big time.

There was a helluva lotta drama - with the screenwriters killing off what felt like 95 per cent of the cast. And that could all be due to change in the highly anticipated follow-up film.

But it comes at a price and that price will be our oh so precious time. But we're sure it'll be worth it and some.

Avengers: Endgame is set to be released on April 26 2019.
