- “Avengers: Endgame,” now in theaters, is the longest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, clocking in at 3 hours and 2 minutes.
- “The Incredible Hulk” and “Thor: The Dark World” are tied for shortest.
- Business Insider has organized all of the MCU movies in a chart to compare their runtimes.
“Avengers: Endgame” shattered box-office records with $350 million domestically and $1.2 billion worldwide over the weekend, despite a 3-hour runtime.
“Endgame” is the culmination of over 10 years of world building, and a follow-up to last year’s “Avengers: Infinity War,” which ended on a massive cliffhanger – so fans weren’t phased by the length of the movie, which is the longest in the MCU.
2008’s “The Incredible Hulk” and 2013’s “Thor: The Dark World” – the second and eighth movies in the MCU, respectively – are the shortest. They are also the two lowest-rated films in the MCU on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
Based on the chart below, which organizes the MCU movies from shortest to longest runtime, it appears that the more characters, the longer the movie. All of the “Avengers” movies and “Captain America: Civil War” are in the top five longest.
