The actor who plays 'Hulk' in the movie asks fans to prepare themselves for three-hour runtime for the last movie of the franchise.
Avengers: Endgame is one of the most anticipated movies of the year as it is the last movie of the franchise. The build to the last movie has gotten all the fans at the edge of their seats, desperately waiting to see how it's all going to come to an end. The epic Marvel movie will cap 11 years of a setup. The franchise started with the first Iron Man movie in 2008 that ran for 126 minutes. Mark Ruffalo recently gave the fans a heads up regarding the run time of the last film. He has requested the fans to carry some Kleenex and wear diapers before they come for the movie which will have a runtime of 3 HOURS! Avengers: Endgame supposedly has a runtime of 182 minutes.
As reported by PEOPLE, during an interview with Good Morning America, Mark Ruffalo who plays the role of Dr. Banner (who turns into the big green monster, Hulk) had a suggestion for the fans when they spoke about their worries of missing out on the movie due to bathroom breaks. "Bring a box of Kleenex and a diaper,” the actor said during the interview on Monday. The actor sat down for an interview with the other original Avengers — Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, and Chris Hemsworth.

During the interview, actor Chris Evans who is known for his role as Captain America opened up about the emotional last day on set for the film. The actor previously spoke about how this would be his last film as he now wants to focus on work behind the camera and would love to get back to his directing career. The actor sent fans into a frenzy when he tweeted that he had wrapped up filming as Captain America. A few weeks later he announced that he wanted to focus on direction and would probably not act again, giving the fans another emotional shock.
"It is the end of a 22, 21 movie tapestry, a 10-year process," Evans explained of his tweet. "This has been an enormous part of my life, it’ll follow me ’till the day I die. And when you think about it, it’s easy to get emotional about it. You try to prepare yourself for the completion and the day came and it was more than I thought it was gonna be. I was really, really besides myself. It just, it got me. I’m an emotional guy.”
In the previous Avengers movie, we saw Thanos succeed in his mission of snapping his fingers and destroying half the universe. In this upcoming movie, we will witness all the remaining superheroes of the world come together to put an end to Thanos and save whatever is left of the universe. Although the fans can't wait for the last film, they are all equally emotional about the fact that the entire franchise is coming to an end. What a journey it has been for the entire Marvel family and all their fans.

Speaking of journeys, the Russo Brothers recently spoke about theirs and the narrative of the film in an interview with Comincbook.com at the recent Cinema Con. "You'll see this from movie to movie for us, for Joe and I in the MCU," Anthony Russo said. "We really strongly commit to the storytelling that's come before. We strongly commit to what's happened to those characters in Winter Soldier, to the dividing of the Avengers in Civil War and the destruction of the relationship between Tony and Steve. The same way, we're committing to the end of Infinity War. What we do is we track how each of those characters who survived, what is their relationship to those events? How do they move forward from that moment? How do they move forward, individually? Collectively? How do you deal with defeat as a superhero?"
"I don't know if, as filmmakers, you ever see this opportunity again," Joe Russo said of their work on Avengers: Endgame. "But it's a clearly audiences are really supportive of the story being told, the Marvel universe, and we're bringing it to a grand close in Endgame...the most heartwarming moments to us when we travel around the world promoting this movie are when people say to us, 'Hey, I started watching this with my classmates when I was 10 years old and now I'm 21 and we're all going to go see it together,' or, you know, 'My parents and I have seen every one of these films together,' or, you know, 'I brought my kids to every one.' Whatever it is, there's always some sense of community around it and you asked that question earlier about reaching global audiences ... it just is something that seems to bind people in a way that is really satisfying as a filmmaker."
Avengers: Endgame opens in theatres on April 26.
