The Russo brothers have confirmed Avengers 4 will be their longest movie yet.
The directing duo, who have helmed all of the Avengers films including the impending Avengers: Infinity War, said in a recent interview that the fourth and final movie in the current MCU format could “easily be a three-hour film.”
Currently, Avengers: Infinity War is the longest MCU movie to date, with a now confirmed running time of 149 minutes and 9 seconds .
Nonetheless, at just short of two-and-a-half hours, it looks like the film will be easily trumped by the running time of Avengers 4.
“It’s pretty long,” the Russo brothers told Collider. “I don’t want to say how long it is because people tend to get really excited. Also, I don’t know that you can really call it a rough cut, it’s more of an assembly.
“It’s our longest rough cut. We have never gotten a time mandate from them at all.
“It could easily be a three-hour film but I think that we’re very hard on the material, we like it to play at a certain pace, so I’m sure we’ll squeeze it.
“We have a whole year of work left on that movie. I do think it’ll be longer than Avengers 3.”
Avengers: Infinity War will be released later this week in the UK and next week in the US.
The film will be the third of four instalments focused around the current iteration of Marvel’s Avengers, with the MCU in store for a huge reset following the release of the final Avengers movie in 2019.
Avengers: Infinity War is release on April 27 in the UK and May 4 in the US.
