News - Avengers: Endgame Is Going To Be Very Long, And Marvel Is OK With That

Avengers: Endgame Is Going To Be Very Long, And Marvel Is OK With That

Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo have reaffirmed that the current cut of the much-anticipated film is three hours long; the editing process isn't over yet, but it appears Endgame will end up being the longest Marvel movie ever.

Asked by Collider if Marvel and Disney are OK with Endgame running for as long as Titanic, the Russo brothers said Marvel/Disney are "down with what the best story is," even at three hours.

Endgame is so long because it's said to wrap up a story that started 22 movies ago. Not only that, but extra time is required for scenes to allow the film to deliver emotional resonance, they said.

"Right now, we think the movie is playing well and we've had great responses from our test audiences and we're feeling very good about where it is," they said. "We're still doing work to it. We're not done with it. Again, this is a culmination film of 22 movies, it's a lot of storytelling to work into it. Emotion is an intrinsic part of that to us. When you have to tell a really complicated story and you want strong emotional moments with the characters, it just requires a certain amount of real estate. This one, in particular, feels like three hours worth of real estate."

They added that in the four screenings for test audiences so far, not one person has left their chair to use the bathroom.

For comparison, Avengers: Infinity War was already a long movie, running for two hours and 40 minutes.

Endgame hits theatres in the US on April 26. A new trailer for it was shown during the Super Bowl this weekend; for more, check out GameSpot's Endgame trailer breakdown in the video embed above. The movie will be preceded by one other Marvel film, Captain Marvel, which releases in March.
