AVENGERS: ENDGAME's Runtime Possibly Revealed And It Could Be The Same As A Certain Director's Cut

There's been a lot of speculation about Avengers: Endgame's runtime and the 3-hour figure has been thrown around a lot. Now, we're hearing it may have something in common with a certain "Ultimate Edition."

According to Trailer-Track E-i-C Anton Volkov, the current Avengers: Endgame runtime that Disney is informing theater owners about ahead of tickets going on sale in North America is the same as the "current holder of the 'longest modern superhero movie' title."

While you may think that's The Dark Knight Rises, Volkov advises that it wasn't actually released theatrically and indicates that he's referring to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: The Ultimate Cut , which obviously ran for a whopping 3 hours, 3 minutes. That's long, but it makes perfect sense for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel to boast an epic three hour runtime. 

It's also said that along with the information that has been sent to US theater owners, the same runtime is being shared by the movie's Slovakian distrubutor, and with the score now complete, this 3 hours, 3 minutes has more than likely been locked in by Disney. 

With only a few minutes of footage revealed from Avengers: Endgame thus far, it's mind-blowing to think about how much Marvel Studios hasn't shown of the movie at this point and it's clear that some big surprises are in store (which hopefully won't be spoiled in the weeks leading up to its release). 

What are your thoughts on this rumoured runtime? Let us know your thoughts down below.

sets the stage for Avengers: Endgame and the MCU's future!

No Secret Invasion?



I think it's fair to say that we went into Captain Marvel expecting the stage to be set for a big screen adaptation of Secret Invasion. However, Talos and the rest of the Skrulls are portrayed in a sympathetic light and the movie does not wrap up with them infiltrating our planet. Does this mean Marvel Studios plans to portray them as the good guys moving forward? 

Not necessarily. 

Talos makes it clear that there are a lot of Skrulls scattered throughout the universe, and it's entirely feasible that at least one of them would like to make our planet home. If nothing else, at least this movie introduces us to the concept of the shapeshifters! 

 

Captain Marvel Vs. The Kree



Captain Marvel ends on something of a cliffhanger as Carol Danvers blasts into space shortly after sending Yon-Rogg back to the Supreme Intelligence with a warning that she's coming to put an end to it once and for all. 

There are a lot of open plot threads here, including what happens when Carol finally comes face to face with the being that spent years controlling her and robbing the hero of her past (we also never get to see its true form, and that feels like something which now needs to be addressed sooner rather than later). 

Plus, it definitely feels like there's more story to tell between Carol and Yon-Rogg, so we're guessing a sequel will take place shortly after the events of this movie to fill in those gaps. 

 

Ronan Hatches A Plan



Ronan doesn't have a huge part in this movie, but we do learn that he's one of the Accusers and see him fully embracing that role while reporting to Yon-Rogg. At this point, he's a long way off becoming the fanatic we met in Guardians of the Galaxy but he seems to be extremely interested in getting his hands on "the weapon."

That's not the Tesseract he's referring to either; it's Captain Marvel!

He clearly has his own plans for her, and it makes sense that this could be where his fascination with the Infinity Stones begins. A sequel could also explore the beginnings of the Kree's war with Xandar and what, if anything, that has to do with the Skrulls.

 

Talos' Son



This may mean a lot or very little, but it's interesting that the movie made a point of showing us Talos' young son watching his father kill the Kree. Given the changes which have been made to the Skrull general, his son (who would be an adult by now) could easily end up with a name comic book fans will recognise.

Seeing Talos' darker side could have set the stage for the child to become someone who is every bit as merciless as his father appeared to be, and he may be the one who leads the invasion of Earth.

 

Monica Rambeau



Carol's relationship with the young Monica Rambeau is a lot of fun and very touching. By the time she returns to Earth, Monica will be an adult and more than ready to become a superhero in her own right.

How that will happen remains to be seen (especially as fans are more anxious to see Kamala Khan/
Ms. Marvel) but the foundations have been laid and it will be exciting to find out what comes next.

Avengers: Endgame



As expected, Captain Marvel's first post-credits scene sets up the events of Avengers: Endgame, and there's a lot of evidence to suggest that Carol Danvers will join the ranks of Earth's Mightiest Heroes fairly early on in the superhero ensemble. 

For starters, Captain America still has his beard while the team is inspecting Fury's pager, while the trailers have shown him cleanly shaven. Once the pager goes off, Black Widow turns around to see Carol standing there and she's anxious to know where her old friend is, so clearly doesn't realise what's happened to the universe after the snap. 

Once the heroes figure out who she is and Carol learns to trust them, Captain Marvel will quickly join their ranks to help take down the Mad Titan once and for all. 

 

Where's Goose?



In the movie's second post-credits scene, Goose (a Flerken) coughs up the Tesseract in Nick Fury's office and that's obviously how he winds up using it to power the weapons we saw in The Avengers.

The question is, what became of Goose after this? Did he escape and do his own thing or die a few years later 
like a normal cat would? For that matter, is he still hanging out with Fury in secret?!
 

Captain Marvel's Powers



We learn during the course of this movie that Carol Danvers' powers come from a combination of the Tesseract and a transfusion she received from Yon-Rogg. However, it's hard not to wonder if Captain Marvel will be anywhere near as powerful as she thinks against Thanos, especially as he has the power of that particular Infinity Stone on his Gauntlet! 

If that stone is destroyed, does that mean Carol loses her powers or will she use it to boost them?

It's hard to say for sure, but her connection to the Stones can't be a coincidence and you have to believe that this will come into play in Avengers: Endgame in a relatively meaningful way.
