ETERNALS Could Be One Of The Longest Marvel Studios Movies To Date According To Newly Surfaced Runtime
The runtime for Eternals has seemingly been revealed after the movie was recently rated, and it looks like this could be one of the longest Marvel Studios adventures to date. Read on for further details!
With just over a month to go before Eternals arrives in theaters (sooner in some international locations), we may now have a runtime for the next Marvel Studios movie.
Spanning 9000 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's history is going to take some time, as is the introduction of all these new characters. As a result, it probably won't surprise you to learn that Eternals has been listed on Russian "Film Distributor Bulletin" website Kino Metro as having a runtime of 156 minutes (2 hours and 36 minutes).
The site has shared accurate information on several occasions in the past, and Eternals was literally just rated in Russia, so there's a very good chance this is a correct number.
Interestingly, Eternals now looks set to be the second-longest Marvel Studios movie of all time. The first is, of course, Avengers: Endgame. That clocked in at over 3 hours, while Avengers: Infinity War would now been shifted to third place with 2 hours, 29 minutes.
In Eternals, the epic story, spanning thousands of years, features a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants.
The cast includes Richard Madden as the all-powerful Ikaris, Gemma Chan as humankind-loving Sersi, Kumail Nanjiani as cosmic-powered Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as the super-fast Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as the intelligent inventor Phastos, Salma Hayek as the wise and spiritual leader Ajak, Lia McHugh as the eternally young, old-soul Sprite, Don Lee as the powerful Gilgamesh, Barry Keoghan as aloof loner Druig, and Angelina Jolie as the fierce warrior Thena. Kit Harington plays Dane Whitman.
