Joe Russo recently said during an interview making it clear they are aiming for a three-hour movie,
“We’re still at the three-hour mark. I think the studio is down with what the best story is. Right now, we think the movie is playing well and we’ve had great responses from our test audiences and we’re feeling very good about where it is.”
Joe further supported his belief in three-hour runtime for Avengers: Endgame with:
“We’re still doing work to it. We’re not done yet. Again, this is a climax of 22 movies, it’s a lot of storytelling to work into it. Emotion is an intrinsic part of that to us"
The runtime indicates that so far we've barely seen anything from the movie yet. The best piece of information we received from the recent early screen is the reactions for this cut, which is not even the final version of the movie, is very positive. As for the fans not lucky enough to watch it are painstakingly waiting for the movie to hit the theaters.
