Avengers: Infintiy War Will Be The Longest Marvel Movie Yet
There is no doubt that the Avengers franchise is the flag-bearer of “DC vs Marvel” debate. The third instalment of the epic superhero franchise is scheduled to release in India on the 27th of April. The excitement around the movie, especially with the star power it possesses, is immense. While having all these superheroes in a movie is great, it can pose some issues to the movie makers. Hence, it has been reported that the Avengers: Infinity War will be the longest Marvel movie ever made.
According to AMC Theatre’s website, the upcoming movie will have a run time of 2 hours 37 minutes. To put things into perspective, Captain America: Civil War, which holds the record right now, had a runtime of 2 hours 27 minutes. At 2 hours 37 minutes, the Avengers: Infinity War is still shorter than the likes of The Godfather or The Lord Of The Rings. However, in today’s day and age, the runtime is quite a lot.
Most of the famous superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) are expected to feature in the film. The recent success of Black Panther meant that the new Avengers has even more hype to live up to. As we move closer to the release of Infinity War, we also near the possible end of Robert Downey Jr. as the Iron Man.
He is contractually obligated to play the Iron Man through the Infinity War films. These films will conclude in 2019 with the second part. However, the future beyond that is uncertain. That being said, we still have a couple of Avengers films to enjoy before worrying about Tony Stark being played by someone other than Robert Downey Jr.
While the Infinity War was supposed to be launched in early-May, Marvel changed things up a bit. Both, Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story are scheduled to be launched in May. Hence, it makes sense for the Avengers to have some solo time in the theatres. The Infinity War will follow the Avengers as they take on Thanos.
