Avengers: Infinity War won't just have the most superheroes of any Marvel movie in history, it will also be the longest-running Marvel film on record. According to the movie's page on AMC's theater website, the Thanos-centric feature will clock in at 2 hours and 36 minutes. This means it will unseat the first Captain America: Civil War, which currently holds the record of longest Marvel movie at 2 hours and 28 minutes.

It makes a ton of sense that the 19th entry to the MCU should be the longest as it is the culmination of all the studio's hard work over the last 10 years. Infinity War ties together the entire universe, brings every hero together to fight a common enemy, and takes place all over the world and in parts of space. You better believe the movie should be over two-and-a-half hours! 

Directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, reminded fans on social media yesterday that only 50 days remain until the film is released. 

Entertainment Weekly also unveiled 15 new, collectible covers today for its in-depth story on the highly-anticipated blockbuster. One of the biggest reveals is Iron Man's Bleeding Edge armor. 

The Marvel Studios extravaganza arrives a week earlier than expected on April 27.
