The movie runs 2 hours and 40 minutes, and brings together the 76 main characters from the 18 Marvel movies your kids have grown up with over the past 10 years.
The stakes are pretty high in this one and the rumor is that Thanos is actually going to kill at least one of the Avengers.

Some people think that means they’re at risk of being the ones who’ll DIE . . . however Jeremy Renner is listed on the credits for next year’s untitled sequel, so I’d take that as a good sign. That movie’s no longer being called “Infinity War Part 2”, by the way.
As for Stan Lee’s obligatory cameo in this movie, it happens during the Peter Parker bus scene you’ve seen in the trailer. And he says he thinks it’s his funniest yet.
