Earlier this year, word came out that Avengers: Endgame would have a hulk-sized runtime, keeping audiences seated for more than three hours in cinema houses.
Now, the directors of the highly anticipated Marvel film have officially confirmed the run time of their culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Though these previous reports were very close to Endgame's final runtime, a few changes through post-production have made the film slightly shorter – the Infinity War sequel is now just a little over three hours long.
"I think its three hours and fifty-eight seconds," Endgame co-director Joe Russo said in an interview with ComicBook.com.
"We just sped up the credits is what we did," the filmmaker joked, laughing.
Sure, the Russos might have shortened the film, but it seems like post-production has made very little difference on Endgame's runtime. Now, the second installment in the Russos' two-part Avengers movie is officially the longest-running film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Infinity War might have come a bit close with its two hour and forty minute long run time, but honestly, a lot can happen within 20 minutes in a movie.
In other Avengers: Endgame news, the Russo Brothers are currently attending this year's CinemaCon to accept the Directors of the Year Award. Though Disney didn't bring the filmmakers on stage during the studio's presentation, the Mickey Mouse House did drop almost five minutes from the film – something which the filmmakers weren't aware of. Still, Disney's little tease worked, because fans are more hyped than ever.
Avengers: Endgame premieres April 26, 2019.
