Now Playing: Avengers: Endgame Trailer 3 Breakdown And What You Might Have Missed

We're in the endgame now. Avengers: Endgame's release is only few weeks out, and Marvel has kicked off ticket sales with a new trailer that's packed with new footage. With the opening of ticket sales has come confirmation of the film's runtime, and as rumored it will be the longest Marvel film to date.

Several theater chains list the runtime at 3 hours and 2 minutes. That makes it a good bit longer than the previously longest Marvel movie to date, Avengers: Infinity War, which came in at 2 hours and 36 minutes. Infinity War and Endgame are essentially a two-part story resolving the Thanos arc that has been teased throughout the MCU, so it makes sense that these two would be the biggest in the series. In other words, if you're currently purchasing tickets, find the theater with the comfiest seats and try not to drink too much water. [Update: Co-directors the Russo brothers say the movie is, in fact, ever so slightly shorter. By their estimate, it clocks in at 3 hours and 58 seconds, which is a small shred of good news for those with tiny bladders.]

The new teaser shows the handful of remaining heroes, including the new addition of Captain Marvel, assembling to confront Thanos. It also notably shows Captain America and Iron Man reconciling, which has been a looming rift since the events of Captain America: Civil War. You can examine the video in-depth along with us in our "special look" trailer breakdown. There's quite a bit of new footage in there, although as always, we can't be sure about what's been included just to throw us off what's actually going to happen in the movie.

Avengers: Endgame will release on April 26, 2019, with some advance screenings set for April 25. Some theaters are even letting Marvel fans marathon through hours of MCU world-building with marathons of select or all of the movies to date. Watch the latest trailer above, and let us know what sticks out to you.

Why is this news? I sat through the Godfather Part II a week ago Sunday. It's three hours, 22 minutes. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, is a three-hour movie. If you saw Grindhouse as a double feature, it was long. Newsflash: if this movie is as good as expected, fans won't give one cent about how long it is.

Seems crazy, but It imagine it will take that long to wrap everything up.

I didn't even notice how long Infinity War was when I watched it the first time. This one though...I may need a urinary catheter, just in case.
