Avengers: Infinity War is almost a week away from premiering, so let’s see how long its runtime will be in theaters.
After years of anticipation, the beginning of the end for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Avengers: Infinity War is so close to happening. And naturally, most fans won’t want it to end.
But that then raises the question, how long will Avengers: Infinity War be?
It was confirmed by Infinity War director Joe Russo that the film will be 156 minutes, or just about two and a half hours. This makes Infinity War the longest running movie in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This just barely beats out the three previous longest running movies Black Panther, The Avengers and Captain America: Civil War.
So now with that, a couple of questions are brought to mind. The first one is how much are they going to show in this movie? The second is how much screen time will each character get.
As for what will be shown, that answer is still unclear. At screenings, all people have seen are at least the first thirty minutes of the movie. And considering how long the full film is, that isn’t much. So how much will be in the movie, as well as how it will end is still very much up to speculation.
As for the character’s screen time, that answer is a bit easier. Reportedly, according to directors Anthony and Joe Russo, both Thanos and Thor will have the most screen time.Sam Weave Large Edelman Black Gingham White Dariel Small Weave Gingham rxwrFqY7SP
It makes sense to be fair. With Thanos being the main villain, and the audience not aware of his backstory in this Universe, it’s possible they will give him the most screen time to introduce the fans to him. With Thor, it’s not as clear why he has the most. But if that’s the case, then he looks to be one of the most important characters in the film.
Undoubtedly, other characters like Iron Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man will have a great deal of screen time too.
In the meantime though, it is still unclear what fans are set to experience when Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters April 27. With as much hype there has been for this film, it is surely set to deliver. Not only that, but with as long as the film is, fans look to possibly get more action than they thought they would.
