How the Avengers: Endgame Writers Crafted a 3-Hour Story #SciFiSunday
Get an inside look at what went on in the Avengers: Endgame writing room from Vulture.
The writers of Avengers: Endgame realize that their blockbuster’s three-hour-and-two-minute running time seems excessive. Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are fully aware of the fact that Endgame eclipses the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s previous running-time record, 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, by nearly half an hour. Theirs is the kind of move you’d expect from Terrence Malick rather than the crafters of a comic-book superhero movie featuring a talking raccoon, but they insist that three hours is the shortest Endgame could possibly be.
