It looks like Marvel's heroes are going to take a long time to defeat Thanos in the 4th installment of the Avengers franchise.
In response to a question about post-production, Russo revealed the team is roughly 50% done with the film.
One of the Russo brothers spilled a major fact about the much-awaited sequel to "Avengers: Infinity War": it may be three hours long.
If the current runtime of Avengers 4 stands, it will be the longest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie yet at 3 hours long. In a recent live stream Q&A, Russo stated, "The running time on Avengers 4 is now sitting right at three hours". The most surprising reveal during the interview might be when we'll see a trailer.
When you think about it, the runtime seems more than justified when you consider all that needs to happen in Avengers 4. I...you know, I'm sure that we'll squeeze it'. We know that there will be time-travel involved.
Russo went onto confirm that they're probably only halfway through the entire process.
A follow-up question was then asked about where the now untitled Avengers 4 was in terms of post-production, in which Russo said "we're about halfway through the editing process".
"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 on the score, and we're still editing picture at this point".
