THE running time for the fourth, as-yet untitled Avengers film is a mighty three hours, meaning that it is set to become the longest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film’s length was teased by co-director Joe Russo in a recent live-streamed Q&A on Instagram to promote his new bar, Duello, in Los Angeles.

Almost inevitably, there were a few questions about the current state of play with Avengers 4, the keenly-anticipated follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War.

In response to one such question about what stage of post-production it is in, Russo replied: “We’re about halfway through the editing process. We’re really just scratching the surface on our VFX shots.

“There are more than 3,000 VFX shots in the movie; those require a lot of time and thought and energy and effort, and we’re very early in the phase of getting VFX done. We’ve just started work with Alan Silvestri on the score, and we’re still editing picture at this point.”

As for the length, he added: “The running time on Avengers 4 is currently sitting right at three hours. We’ll see if that holds.”

Russo did, however, remain tight-lipped on any other tit-bits, including the title of the movie, or the exact date of a trailer – although both he and his brother, Anthony, have promised a teaser by the end of the year.

He did, however, promise that the new film would live up to fans’ expectations.

“Will the stakes be higher in Avengers 4? Absolutely. 100 percent. The highest of any of the films to date, without question.”

Avengers 4 will be released May 3, 2019.

The current record-holder for lengthiest title in the MCU is Avengers: Infinity War, which clocks in at two hours, forty minutes.
