Next month’s anticipated “Avengers: Endgame” is projected to shatter box-office records, despite a 3-hour runtime.
That runtime makes it the longest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, of which “Endgame” is the 22nd film in the franchise.
“Endgame” is the culmination of over 10 years of world building, and a follow-up to last year’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” which ended on a massive cliffhanger — so fans probably won’t be phased by the length of the movie.
While “Infinity War” is the longest, 2008’s “The Incredible Hulk” and 2013’s “Thor: The Dark World” — the second and eighth movies in the MCU, respectively — are the shortest. They are also the two lowest-rated films in the MCU on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
Based on the chart below, which organizes the MCU movies from shortest to longest runtime, it appears that the more characters, the longer the movie. All of the “Avengers” movies and “Captain America: Civil War” are in the top five longest.
Check out the chart below for a further look at the MCU movie runtimes:
