Russo Brothers React To Avengers: Endgame Possibly Needing An Intermission
You've probably heard that Avengers: Endgame is three hours long and that the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe flick would be in dire need of an intermission. Interestingly, directors Joe and Anthony Russo have already heard about that as well and they're here to set the record straight.
The Russo brothers recently spoke to Collider about Endgame and even joked about the film's lengthy runtime. Joe admitted that the crew jokes about a possible intermission in the edit room but Anthony quickly clarified that you're probably not going to need a break while watching the fourth Avengers movie.
"We've screened the movie four times for audiences now," he said. "For the first three screenings, not a single person got up to go to the bathroom." Joe added, "We took that as a good sign."
Of course, this doesn't confirm whether the film is shorter than originally reported. It could be possible that Endgame is a truly enthralling movie that people just couldn't leave their seats until the end. Either way, we're hoping that the MCU flick will provide a proper conclusion to the Avengers this year.
The synopsis for Endgame reads as follows:
"After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War, the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store."
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26.
