‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Exact Runtime Confirmed Officially

There is a little more than a month before Avengers: Infinity War comes to theaters all over the world, and now there is exact information about the runtime of one of the most eagerly anticipated films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It was noticed that the Infinity War film’s overview page on Fandango, clocked the movie at 156 minutes, which makes it a little longer than two and a half hours.

This revelation about the movie’s runtime means, Avengers: Infinity War is now officially the longest MCU movie so far,  anhonor that earlier belonged to Captain America: Civil War which had a runtime of 147 minutes.

The confirmation is also in sync with the runtime indicated by SM Cinema in February. While sharing their schedule for the advanced screening of Avengers: Infinity War, they had mentioned it has a two-and-a-half hour of screentime, which is only 6 minutes less than the official listing on Fandango. It might appear to be a quite a lot of time for an MCU film, but, if we look at the latest trailer, there is a reason for Avengers: Infinity War to need all those 156 minutes. The trailer released a few days back, and it revealed that Thanos primarily had only one goal, quoting his daughter, Gamora, and that is to destroy half of the universe and that’s something he would be able to do in a snap once he acquires all the Infinity Stones.

The idea is a frightening one, and it had already been explored by Marvel in the Infinity Gauntlet comic book series in 1991, but, we have all the reason to believe that each MCU hero will try to deny Thanos the chance. We see Steve Rogers/Captain America (Chris Evans) take on the Mad Titan in hand-to-hand combat while the latter dons a half-completed Gauntlet.

However, it is not only the mega-villain faced by the heroes, which necessitates Avengers: Infinity War to run for that long. Joe Russo, co-director of the film mentioned in a special feature of Thor: Ragnarok’s home release, that each story, right from the Iron-Man 1, will have a link here.

“Every story that Marvel has told since Iron Man 1 finds a narrative thread in these next two Avengers movies,” Russo said. “It is a culmination of all that storytelling.”

Marvel’s Black Panther is currently running in theaters, and Avengers: Infinity War will release on April 27. The mega movie will be followed by Ant-Man and The Wasp on July 6, Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, Avengers 4on May 3, 2019, Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel on July 5, 2019, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in 2020.
