Joe Russo, the one half of duo The Brothers, believes the days of two-hour format will soon be over

According to Deadline, the was speaking alongside brother Anthony at Business Insider Ignition.

During the discussion, Joe said it is becoming increasingly difficult to work in the two-hour format.

"We are in a major moment of disruption. The two-hour has had a great run for about 100 years but it's become a very predictive format. It's difficult, I think, to work in it. It's sort of like saying, 'We all like sonnets, so let's tell sonnets for 100 years, as many ways as we possibly can...

"I'm not sure that this next generation that is coming up is going to see two-hour narrative as the predominant form of storytelling for them," Joe said.

The duo's Marvel tentpole "Avengers: Infinity War" had a runtime of over two hours and forty minutes. It was the longest project yet.

In November, Joe had revealed that the upcoming Avengers 4 might clock three hours.
