EARLY SCREENINGS OF AVENGERS: ENDGAME ARE UP!
The runtime for Avengers: Endgame is somewhere around over three hours. News went around earlier tonight that Marvel has begun screening the film to test audiences and the film was so good, that no one even dared to use the washroom.
According to Collider, Joe and Anthony Russo revealed that out of the four times the film was screened, nodbody got up to use the washroom on three occasions.
ANTHONY RUSSO SAYS:
“We have screened the movie four times for audiences now,” Anthony Russo revealed. “For the first three screenings, not a single person got up to go to the bathroom.”
The Russos revealed that yes, the current cut of the film is north of 3 hours. It’s about 20 minutes longer than Infinity War. Infinity War is the longest MCU film till date with a runtime of 2 hours and 40 minutes.
“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,” the brothers said. “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.”
Thor: The Dark World is the shortest MCU film till date clocked at 1 hour 52 minutes.
Avengers: Endgame will hit theaters on April 26.
