Earlier this week, rumor had it that Avengers: Endgame’s pre-sales woud begin on Monday, April 25. However, come the date, and Marvel has yet to begin selling tickets to its highly anticipated sequel to Avengers: Infinity War.
Now, a new report by LRM offers another date for Endgame’s presales, saying that tickets to the film will be made available for pre-order on April 2. The site also stipulates that because of the film’s runtime Endgame’s first showings have been moved from 7 pm to 6 pm to accommodate its 3-hour length.
That’s right – Endgame is going to last for more than 3 hours long in cinemas. That means Marvel fans are going to have to practice holding in their bathroom breaks.
There’s certainly a lot riding on Endgame. Not only is the film the final chapter to Joe and Anthony Russo’s two-part Avengers movie, but it’s also the culmination of the past ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Hype over the film is sweltering as well. Marvel fans were devastated when they saw fan-favorite heroes like Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther, and Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange all turn into dust after Thanos’ Snappening. Now, everyone’s waiting to see the remaining members of the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy try and undo the Decimation.
The mission won’t be easy though, and many expect heroes like Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man and Chris Evan’s Captain America to end up sacrificing their lives to bring everyone else back in Endgame.
Avengers: Endgame is set for release on April 26, 2019.
