Since the release of the first trailer in December, Avengers: Endgame has essentially dominated the internet. Well, let’s be honest: It’s basically owned the internet since Thanos decimated our heroes at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
‘Avengers: Endgame’ Run Time and Everything New We Know Now
This week, we got a new piece of news that fans have been clamoring for: a run time. The Hollywood Reporter has reported that, per sources, the movie will clock in at an astounding three hours and 58 seconds. This would make it the longest MCU movie by 22 minutes, with the runner-up, Infinity War, clocking in at two hours and 40 minutes. It is a record-breaking length for a superhero film, and certainly one of the longest for a blockbuster.
The report of the run time came hot on the heels of the movie’s next trailer, which was released two weeks ago and showcases not just the Avengers as they attempt to undo the destruction that the Mad Titan Thanos unleashed upon the universe but also the newest superhero to join the fray: Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel.
Tickets are Officially on Sale
Tickets for Endgame went on sale on April 2nd and if that wasn't enough, Marvel dropped another new trailer to go along with the tickets announcement.
Character posters confirm major deaths
Marvel has been relatively tight-lipped regarding the new movie, and the Russo brothers have stated that they used fake footage in their trailers just to keep information hidden from fans. This week, however, Marvel released character posters for everyone who will (or is believed to) make an appearance in Endgame, split by who is still alive and who was killed off in the battle against Thanos in Infinity War.
These posters caused quite a stir online, especially the fact that one of the universe’s favorite characters, Shuri from Black Panther, had been lost in Thanos's snap aka the Decimation.
It seems as if these posters and ticket announcement trailer might be the final pieces of content we get to see prior to the film’s worldwide release date on April 27, and with opening weekend box office projections looking to be above $800 million, fan anticipation has never been higher.
For now, we just need to be patient as we await the release.
Whatever it takes.
