Avengers: Endgame is without a doubt one of the most anticipated films of 2019. Not only does it mark the closing of an era at Marvel Studios, it may be the last time we see the original lineup of Avengers in these films.
Plot details remain scarce, which has led fans to speculate on other matters, including the runtime. Speaking with Empire Magazine, Anthony and Joe Russo had this to say:
“There’s a high probability that this movie will clock in at around three hours. It’s a big movie with a lot of story.”
While the final runtime is yet to be determined, it would make sense if the film ended up being close to three hours: there are plenty of plot threads to address.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame reportedly stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Frank Grillo, Letitia Wright, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Josh Brolin, Chris Pratt, Jeremy Renner, Evangeline Lilly, Jon Favreau, Paul Rudd, and Brie Larson. Here’s the official synopsis:
A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.
Avengers: Infinity War is now on Digital and Blu-ray, while Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th, 2019.
