Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo has officially confirmed the run time to 3 hours and 58 seconds long.
“I think it’s three hours and fifty eight seconds,” Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo told ComicBook.com. “We just sped up the credits is what we did,” he added with a laugh.
Marvel’s ensemble movies have, slowly but surely, been getting longer, and Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters April 26, has been rumored for months to be pushing three hours. Now the run time’s official: 3 hours and 58 seconds.
Earlier reports had the film running slightly longer, 3 hours and 2 minutes, to be exact, according to a run time posted by AMC theaters on March 25 and then later deleted.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 26.
