If you thought Avengers: Infinity War was long, wait until Avengers 4 comes out.
Joe Russo, one half of the directing Russo brothers, recently did an Instagram Q&A, and he was asked about the runtime for the highly-anticipated Avengers sequel which is scheduled for next year.
Although the final version isn’t complete yet, Joe teased the length of the movie as things stand.
“The running time on Avengers 4 is currently sitting right at three hours, so we’ll see if that holds,” he said (via ComicBook.com). “But it’s sitting right at three hours right now.”
Avengers: Infinity War, which took more than $2 billion worldwide, had a runtime of 149 minutes (2 hours and 29 minutes). Captain America: Civil War was 147 minutes long (2 hours and 27 minutes), while The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron last 143 minutes (2 hours and 23 minutes) and 141 minutes (2 hours and 21 minutes) respectively.
So if Avengers 4 stays at around three hours long (180 minutes), then it will comfortably be the longest Marvel movie to date.
Avengers: Infinity War ended in dramatic fashion, as Thanos succeeded in his mission to retrieve all of the Infinity Stones and wipe out half of the population (including the likes of Black Panther, Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch, and Doctor Strange).
Elizabeth Olsen (who plays Scarlet Witch) previously hinted that things will “get worse” before they get better in Avengers 4, which sounds rather ominous.
Avengers 4 will be released in the UK on April 26, 2019, and in the US on May 3, 2019.
