AVENGERS: ENDGAME Director Joe Russo Has Now Officially Revealed The Movie's Runtime

We already knew that Avengers: Endgame would most likely clock in at around three hours, but directors Joe and Anthony Russo have now confirmed that the movie will actually run a tiny bit longer....

Thanks to theater listings and previous reports, we already had a pretty good idea that Avengers: Endgame would clock in at around 3 hours, and now it's finally been confirmed.

While speaking to ComicBook.com, co-director Joe Russo revealed that the Marvel epic's official runtime will be 3 hours, 58 seconds.

This is hardly the first blockbuster to cross into 3-hour territory, but it is the longest installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far by a good 20 minutes (Infinity War ran about 2h 40m). Most fans won't have a problem with this, of course, but sitting in one spot for that long can be a daunting prospect for general audiences.

What do you guys think? Is three hours too long? Should the movie have an intermission? Be sure to drop us a comment down below, and you can also check out a detailed breakdown of the CinemaCon footage that screened the other night.

Thanos' Whereabouts

The footage begins with Captain Marvel vowing to take down Thanos herself, but The Avengers are adamant that she doesn't go it alone.

When Black Widow notes that they don't even know where he is, Nebula chimes in and reveals that The Mad Titan told her about a garden planet he intended to retreat to once his plan was accomplished, and, as we know from the final scene of Infinity War, that's exactly where he went after "The Snap."

Rocket then pulls up a hologram to show a planet where a massive energy signature was recorded two days prior. Yes, Thanos has used The Infinity Gauntlet again.

Plan A

As many have speculated, it seems the team's first plan of action will be to use the still-working Infinity Gauntlet to reverse the effects of the stones once Thanos is defeated.  Although we don't get many details in this clip, at one point Carol proposes that they “use [the stones] to bring everyone back.”

Based on what we've seen from the trailers, it's assumed that this first attempt will fail and that's why they'll need to use those white suits to enter the Quantum Realm.

Tony Stark And Scott Lang Are Not Present

Although we know Iron Man returns to Earth with Nebula and is seen reuniting with Pepper in the most recent trailer, by all accounts neither he or Scott Lang are present during this scene, nor do they travel into space with the others.

Are Stark and Ant-Man off working on another way to reverse "The Decimation," or does Tony still harbor some bad feelings about what went down between he and Cap in Civil War?

Where Has Captain Marvel Been?

It doesn't look like Endgame is going to devote too much time to revealing what Carol has been up to over the past two decades, but we will get an explanation... of sorts. 

At one point, Rhodey asks Danvers where she's been all this time, and she responds by telling him that “there are a lot of planets not as fortunate to have you guys.”

It's not much of an explanation, but it may well be the only one we get in this movie.

"Let's Go Get This Son Of A Bitch"

The team decides to use The Benatar to travel to Thanos' planet and attempt to take him down. Before they board, Cap rallies the troops with an uncharacteristic, "let's go get this son of a bitch."

We then see the heroes begin their journey, while Rocket asks his new crew if any of them have never been to space before. Cap, Natasha and Rhodey all raise their hands, and Rocket says he doesn’t want anyone puking in his ship.

The scene ends with celestial light reflecting in Steve's eyes as the ship jumps to light-speed.
