It has long been suspected, and now its confirmed – “Avengers: Infinity War” is looking set to clock in as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s longest film yet with a 156 minute runtime according to AMC Theaters.
Last Summer, co-director Joe Russo said the current cut of the film was over two and a half [hours] and the aim was to get it down to the two and a half hour or two and a half hour-plus range.
At 156 minutes it beats out the 148 minute “Captain America: Civil War” by eight minutes, and the previous two “Avengers” films by around fifteen minutes.
Joe and Anthony Russo helm the film which stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston, and Josh Brolin.
Many of the film’s stars have made the collector’s covers of this week’s issue of EW. Check out a full gallery of the shots below. “Avengers: Infinity War” opens everywhere on April 27th.
