Filming and reshoots have wrapped on Avengers 4, meaning were getting ever closer to a plot synopsis and a trailer.

But it looks like a whole lot of content will be jammed into the promos.

An interview with director Joe Russo has resurfaced, in which he teases that youll need a comfy cushion in the cinema with you for the epic finale to the Avengers franchise.

Russo has claimed that Avengers 4 could be a whopping three hours long – thats 31 minutes longer than the 149 minute-long Infinity War.

Well, they do have a lot of stories to wrap up.

Speaking to Collider earlier this year, Russo said: Ill say it could easily be a three hour film, but I think that, you know, were very hard on the material. We like it to play at a certain pace.

Uh…I…you know, Im sure that well squeeze it.

Admitting at that point he and brother Anthony still had a lot of work to do on the blockbuster, he said: I do think it will be longer than Avengers 3, but its clearly impossible to say.

Best start getting the snacks in now, then. Remember, its a marathon, not a sprint.

Its expected that a trailer for Avengers 4 will be released before the end of the year, but even without a trailer, were getting an idea of what could happen in the film thanks to fan theories.

One Redditor has suggested that a scene from Thor: The Dark World explains how the Thanos snap will be reversed, thanks to a discussion surrounding the Soul Forge, or quantum field generator.

It has already been confirmed by Michael Douglas that the Quantum Realm will be a key plot point, meaning those heroes turned to dust by Thanos may be brought back to life.
