The Eternals will last longer than Infinity War

The next big release from Marvel Studios, The Eternals, it will last longer than Avengers: infinity War.

After the premieres of Black widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be The Eternals by Chloé Zhao. The film has a luxury cast made up of Gemma Chan (an actress who curiously gives life to two UCM characters, the first was Minerva in Captain Marvel), Richard Madden, Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani among others.

Despite the fact that most of the general public does not know about The Eternals comics, Marvel Studios is betting heavily that this movie could be the next MCU franchise. Most fans have become increasingly interested in the potential of the film as time has passed, and the final trailer for The Ethenes offers a better look at the superpowers of the characters and of the Celestials. that we saw very briefly in the first movie of Guardians of the Galaxy.

The film will be the second longest after Endgame

Now it has been revealed how long the Chloé Zao film lasts and points out that the MCU phase 4 film lasts 2 hours and 36 minutes. The “Film Distributors Newsletter” Russian Kino Metro that has published the file of the film indicates that the film will last 156 minutes. Tickets are expected to go on sale fairly soon, so we should have final confirmation of their duration when this happens.

If the duration of 2 hours and 36 minutes is confirmed, it will make Los Eternos the second longest MCU movie to date, since it would be 7 minutes longer than Avengers: Infinity War. Avengers: Endgame currently occupies the first place with its 3 hours and 1 minute duration. This makes hopefully The Eternals is different from other MCU movies of the past, but it also speaks to the great nature of the film’s story. Depending on the official duration of The Eternals, there is a possibility that it will be left behind from Infinity War and Captain America: Civil War if you arrive with 8 minutes less.

This duration would not be surprising.

However, that The Eternals has such a long duration shouldn’t be too surprising. The film features ten main characters, plus Kit Harington’s Black Knight, as well as the Celestials and Deviants. As far as cast is concerned, it places it on a par with a film by The Avengers than with a first installment of a franchise like Guardians of the Galaxy or Black panther. All of these characters and a story spanning thousands of years means The Eternals need a longer run time to develop the story and give each of them considerable screen time.
