Next ‘Avengers’ movie may be 3 hours long, says director
One of the Russo brothers spilled a major fact about the much-awaited sequel to “Avengers: Infinity War”: it may be three hours long.
“The running time on Avengers 4 is currently sitting right at three hours. We’ll see if that holds,” director Joel Russ said in the live Q&A on Instagram Thursday. If confirmed, this will be the longest Marvel movie to date.
When asked if the movie was already in the post-production stage, Russo answered that the movie’s team was halfway through the editing process, and were “scratching the surface on our VFX (visual effects) 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, ” he said. “We’ve just started work with Alan Silvestri (the movie’s composer) on the score, and we’re still editing picture at this point.”
Replying to a question whether the upcoming movie would live up to fans’ expectations, Russo said, “Absolutely. 100 percent.” He added: “The highest of any of the films to date, without question.”
The still-untitled “Avengers” movie will serve as the last film for Chris Evans, who played Captain America since he first played the role in 2011’s “Captain America: The First Avenger.”
The movie is set to hit theaters on May 3, 2019, in the United States. /ra
