Now that we have an official trailer, poster, and release date for Avengers: Endgame, it's time to start preparing ourselves for the mental and emotional stress the movie is going to put us through on April 26. Avengers: Infinity War was already a roller coaster, but considering everything we're expecting to happen in the epic fourth Avengers instalment, it's going to take a while for us to recover. And because Marvel is so relentless in their endeavour to completely wreck us, Avengers: Endgame is the longest running Marvel Studios movie ever.
The film was still going through the editing process as of Nov. 8 with a runtime of three hours. Now, a few months later, it's been confirmed on AMC's website that Endgame will be a lengthy three hours and two minutes long. (Start figuring out those pee breaks now, people!)
Since that time is indeed true, it takes the crown — or gauntlet — as the longest Marvel movie so far. The film that previously held the title is Infinity War, which runs for two hours and 36 minutes. We know that there are a lot of loose ends to tie up and new beginnings to introduce. It's the end of an era as well as the start of a new one, after all, so it's not surprising that Avengers: Endgame will keep us at the edge of our seats a little longer than usual. But we certainly don't mind — we'll just bring extra snacks and tissues to the theatre.
