Avengers: Endgame Boss Talks About The Movie’s Three-Hour Length

One element of the discussion surrounding Avengers: Endgame is about its length–at three hours, the superhero film is very long. In a new interview, Marvel boss Kevin Feige said the runtime is the “least interesting thing” of all about the movie.

He told io9 that Endgame is “as long as it should be.”

“We are not fans of overindulging movies. We are not fans of laborious lengths for no reason,” he explained. “We are fans of movies that you wish didn’t end. Movies that you want to see again as soon as it’s over. And movies that you just don’t ever find a good time to run out to the bathroom. That’s when a movie’s working. And if a movie doesn’t feel like that to us we continue to trim, we continue to shape, we continue to bring that time down.”

Feige confirmed that Marvel made cuts to Endgame “to a certain extent” to make sure it didn’t overstay its welcome while also delivering a satisfying conclusion to 10 years worth of storytelling. “We got to a point where it feels very exciting and goes by very quickly and in the end is the perfect length. And everybody that saw the movie felt the same way,” he said.

Co-director Anthony Russo is also quoted in the piece; he said only “very little” was cut from Endgame. The director’s cut would only be about two minutes longer, he estimated.

Avengers: Endgame hits theatres at the end of the month. The story picks up after the dramatic conclusion to Infinity War, which saw the evil Thanos snap his fingers and immediately wipe out half of the galaxy’s population. There is a theory that Ant-Man will fly into Thanos’s butt to save the galaxy, but that probably won’t happen.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
