Remember when Avengers: Endgame commenced filming in August of 2017? Remember when they wrapped shooting January of last year? Remember when Chris Evans expressed his gratitude and subtle goodbye to the Captain America role when he wrapped all his scenes? These are but a few of the many milestones this two-part Avengers journey has had and yesterday, the Russos took to Twitter to reveal one of their final milestones.

For those who don’t know, picture-lock means that they’ve settled on a final cut for the film. This cut will be the one VFX houses will finalize, the one composer Alan Silvestri will finish his music to, and the one we’ll see on screen a month from now. It wasn’t too long ago that the Russos talked about possibly having a 3-hour runtime for the film. Given the proximity of these comments, it’s probably safe to say that Avengers: Endgame will be the longest MCU movie yet, regardless if it doesn’t reach 3 hours.
