AVENGERS: ENDGAME Will Likely Stick With 3-Hour Runtime After Highly Positive Test-Screening Reactions

Directors Joe & Anthony Russo have revealed that Avengers: Endgame will most likely stick with a 3-hour runtime after positive reactions to a recent round of test screenings. Find out more after the jump.

It looks like the theatrical release of Avengers: Endgame may actually clock-in at 3 hours after all.

We had heard that the Infinity War follow-up was sitting at the 3 hour mark back in November when it was still only halfway through the editing process, but most of us assumed that runtime would be trimmed down as the movie neared the end of post-production.

Well, according to The Russo Brothers, Endgame is still 3 hours long!

Apparently, Marvel is fine with the lengthy runtime as long as the film "hits the right beats," and the studio will also be pleased with the fact that the fourth Avengers movie has received highly positive feedback from four separate test-screenings.

Here's what Joe Russo had to say to Collider on the matter:

“I think the studio is down with what the best story is. 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. 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.”

There's always a chance the movie will come in at under 3 hours, but even if it does, The Russos have previously confirmed that it will be longer than Infinity War, which ran 2 hrs 40 mins.
