Avengers: Infinity War Is A Long Movie--Marvel's Longest Yet
It turns out infinity is a very long time.
Plan your bathroom breaks accordingly, because Avengers: Infinity War is going to last a while. According to AMC Theaters, the next Marvel Cinematic Universe entry is the longest yet by nearly 10 minutes.
Infinity War clocks in at 2 hours and 36 minutes, topping the 2-hour and 27-minute runtime of Captain America: Civil War. With so much story to tackle--and so many Avengers to service--though, it makes sense that this movie would eat up a lot of time. It looks like there's a lot of ground to cover based on the new trailer--you can also check out our Infinity War trailer breakdown.
This movie sees pretty much every superhero the MCU has introduced thus far, from the Avengers to Doctor Strange to the Guardians of the Galaxy, banding together to battle Thanos, the intergalactic warlord looking to control the Infinity Stones. The film will also, no doubt, set up whatever story is to be told in Avengers 4, as the movies were shot back-to-back.
That all said, it's not as if the MCU is known for short runtimes. The shortest of the films thus far is 2008's The Incredible Hulk at 1 hour and 52 minutes, with most stretching past the two-hour mark.
Avengers: Infinity War arrives in theaters on April 27. To prepare for the movie's release, take a look at GameSpot's comprehensive guide to the Infinity Stones and every character confirmed for the movie.
