We’re about one month away from the debut of Avengers: Endgame, the culmination of 22 films and three phases of the MCU. The highly-anticipated Marvel film will mark the ending of what is now being referred to as the Infinity Saga, which means it has a lot to tie up in regards to expectations and storylines. So just how long will we find ourselves sitting in that theater seat?  Thanks to AMC, we may finally have our answer.

Earlier today it was reported that the official AMC Theaters website listed the Avengers: Endgame film’s runtime at 3 hours, 2 minutes.

Shortly after the news hit Twitter, the website removed the runtime.

This news falls in line with what co-director Joe Russo previously revealed during an Instagram chat:

“The running time on Avengers 4 is currently sitting right at three hours. We’ll see if that holds.”

If this runtime holds true, it will make Avengers: Endgame the longest running Marvel film, right behind Avengers: Infinity War which held up at 2 hours, 40 minutes.

The lengthy runtime comes as no surprise considering the film is the conclusion for everything that has happened thus far in the MCU.

“Again, this is a culmination film of 22 movies,” the Russos told Collider last month. “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.”

AMC also posted the plot synopsis on their page which reads, “The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, Avengers: Endgame.”

You have to admit, that’s a pretty impressive runtime considering the directors recently confirmed that there’s fake footage in the trailers!

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
