Out of all the major event films Disney has hitting theaters this year, none are more significant than Avengers: Endgame. Built as the culmination of the past 11 years of Marvel films, fans have been dying in anticipation to see which of their favorite heroes come to back to life and which will perish to never be seen again. With less than two months to ago, it’s safe to say the hype will only continue to grow.
One of the major topics about Endgame has been its running time, which is reported to be three-hours long. Despite that being by far the longest length for an MCU film, producer Kevin Feige shared in an interview with Collider that he has no plans of changing the length.
“We’re gonna release the movie at the exact right running time. I’m telling you this, it’s gonna be perfect. It’s gonna be the exact running time that the movie needs to be. I think there’s a lot of story in that movie and a lot of characters in that movie,” the producer says of the upcoming blockbuster.
In all seriousness, we don’t look at run times in terms of mandates, or anything like that. Every movie should feel like it’s an hour and 45 minutes. Now, some movies can be 90 minutes and feel like they’re four hours. And some movies can be three and a half hours and feel like 90 minutes.”
So for us, that’s what it … It’s, “how does it feel?”
Feige, as always, has a steady control over Marvel and their respective decisions, with this one not being a huge surprise. I am surprised if any fan is sad about Feige’s decision, as fans want as much Endgame as they can get. I think the three-hour length is fitting for this epic conclusion, and I hope it can live up to the hype.
Avengers: Endgame hits theaters on April 26th.
