Honestly, at this point, we’re ready to time-travel to mid-December. Ever since the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer was released, it has been smashing records. As the days pass, it’s getting more and more difficult to keep yourself composed. According to our latest updates from the film, you might gonna need some extra popcorns as Spider-Man: No Way Home could have the longest runtime of a solo MCU film.
A British movie theater chain that is pre-booking tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home has listed the runtime for the film that could make it the longest non-Avenger film in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to its ticket listing, No Way Home is slated to have a runtime of 150 minutes which is the equivalent of 2.5 hours.
Cineworld which is ranked as the second-largest movie theater chain in the world has over 10,000 locations in ten different countries. Hence, a theater that big listing on its website seems to be a reliable piece of information for us.
Two and a half hours would be a good amount of runtime for an MCU film of a Multiverse nature. So far in MCU’s history, there have been only two films that have reached 150 minutes long and that would be Avengers: Infinity War‘s 160 minutes and Avengers: Endgame‘s 182 minutes. Spider-Man: No Way Home would hence then have the longest runtime of a solo Marvel superhero film.
For a fact that the film is dealing with Marvel’s Multiverse and will be the first of the MCU releases to really probe into it, the slated runtime seems pretty apt. The film could even explore the events that followed up after Sylvie broke the sacred timeline in Loki and even set a plot for next year’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Honestly, it has a lot of ground to cover and if rumors are true that we will see the return of the previous film Spider-Men, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield, then it makes sense to give the story a runtime of 150 minutes.
To date, there hasn’t been any MCU film that has hit the 150 minutes mark. A lot of them have come pretty close. Spider-Man: Homecoming clocked in 133 minutes and its sequel, Far From Home, had a 129 minutes runtime. Holding the record for the longest solo MCU film currently is Captain America: Winter Soldier at 136 minutes which is just 14 minutes short of 150.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is slated to release on December 17th
