SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME's Runtime Has Been Officially Revealed

Avengers: Endgame was over three hours long, but how does the conclusion of the "Infinity Saga," Spider-Man: Far From Home, compare to that? Find out the sequel's official runtime after the jump...

Spider-Man: Far From Home swings into theaters next week, and now another key piece of information about the sequel has been revealed. According to a new listing from the British Board of Film Classification, the Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures movie has a runtime of 129 minutes, or two hours and nine minutes.

That sounds about right for a blockbuster like this, and the BBFC also mentions that the movie will feature, "moderate fantasy violence, threat, sex references, language."

Surprisingly, this news confirms a recent theory that the total runtime of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be 3000 minutes, as Spider-Man: Far From Home's runtime takes it up to that number. That's more than likely a coincidence ("I love you, 3000" was included in Avengers: Endgame because that's what one of Robert Downey Jr.'s children says to him) but it's still very interesting.

Time will tell whether Marvel Studios releases a huge box set including all of its moves from Phases 1 to 3, but that could be tricky, especially as the Spider-Man films are distributed by Sony.

How Far After The Event Of Avengers: Endgame Is The Movie Set?

Yesterday's trailer finally confirmed that, yes, Spider-Man: Far From Home does indeed take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. However, we've heard conflicting reports about just how much time will have passed. Is it minutes, hours, days, or more?
"We don't say specifically how far after, but the idea is that it's almost immediately after the events of Endgame," Watts confirms. "So we get to see the neighborhood from the first movie dealing with the implications of all of the crazy fallout of Endgame. And, you know, in classic New York style, everyone is just moving on and getting on with their daily lives. Ya know, half the people that disappeared are now back, so let's move on. [laughs]"

Is that an indication that the movie will mostly just brush over the five-year time jump?!

Does The Movie Really Introduce The Marvel Multiverse?

The trailer reveals that Mysterio is from another Earth and that the Snap ripped a hole in reality (are we sure it wasn't The Avengers travelling through time?). However, does Far From Home really introduce the Multiverse or is "Mr. Beck" trolling Spider-Man and those of us in the audience? 

"Well, I mean, yeah," Watts claims. "We had to look at it in terms of the scope of what happened at the end of Endgame. Seeing all the crazy things that they did and all the questions that raises. So we're definitely trying to answer one of the big ones -- alternate timelines. So many possibilities opened up at the end of Endgame, and Peter Parker is one of the few people on the ground dealing with them."
As for whether he could explain the rules the MCU's Multiverse, Watts would only say, "I wouldn't dare! I'll let Nick Fury do that."

Why Is Nick Fury Trying To Recruit Spider-Man? 

After being inspired by Captain Marvel, Nick Fury created The Avengers Initiative and brought together Earth's Mightiest Heroes to tackle threats too big for the rest of us. Now, it sounds like he might be trying to do the same thing in a world he's been absent from for the past five years. 

"Well, that was what was very exciting to me because this is a version of Nick Fury I don't think we've ever seen, which is a Nick Fury who is playing catch-up," the filmmaker explains. "He disappeared for five years and the world changed dramatically in his absence, and here he is trying to put together a new team."
"Spider-Man and Mysterio are being recruited to tackle this threat of the Elementals," he continues. "That's what Nick Fury does, but now things are crazier than usual."

Who Is Mysterio And What Are The Elementals?

Quentin Beck is a villain in the comic books and a well-known con-man but this big screen version has clearly gone through some major changes. Asked who Mysterio is and what his agenda is when we first meet him, Watts replies: "In the film, it's similar to the trailer, he is introduced as a potential ally to fight off this elemental threat."

As for those Elementals, just like most of us suspected, they're from the same world as Beck. "They're both from the same sort of parallel dimension, yeah," the filmmaker adds. 

What Happened To Aunt May Following The Snap? 

Spider-Man ended up being dusted alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy on Titan so has his Aunt May spent the past five years not knowing what became of her nephew? Well, in a bid to make things a little more straightforward, Watts confirms that May was actually one of the Mad Titan's victims back on Earth. "She disappeared and came back," he confirms when asked about her fate.

Are The Criminals In The Trailer Working For The Kingpin?

At the start of the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer, the Iron Spider can be seen taking on some heavily armed goons and, well, they look a lot more serious than the Bodega Bandits from the first film. So, is it possible that they're tied to someone like Wilson Fisk? "Well, I don't want to say too much, but I will say they're not specifically tied to Kingpin in this movie," Watts confirms.

"But you do get to see what it's like now for Spider-Man to be a very confident and friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. I feel like he's got the neighborhood under control."

Is Miles Morales Going To Be Introduced In The Movie?

Donald Glover's Aaron Davis mentions his nephew Miles in Spider-Man: Homecoming and now that five years have passed, he might just be the right age to become a superhero...right? "There is no Miles in this film, or at least not yet," Watts reveals when asked about the character's big screen future. "But who knows... we edit these films down to the last second, so you never know."

How Does Far From Home Address The Fallout From Endgame?

"I've always seen Spider-Man as the most relatable superhero for that reason," Watts says when asked about how Spider-Man: Homecoming offered a more personal look at the MCU. "I used Peter Parker/Spider-Man as an opportunity to get that ground-level perspective to show you what it would look like if all these crazy things had happened. What would day-to-day life be? If you were snapped away, you'd have to work backwards and retake your midterms."

"That was one of the most fun things," he continues, "just talking through what the most mundane implications would be. Like, your birthday on your driver's license or passport would say that you are five years older than you technically are. Those sorts of questions are just so fascinating to me, and I really wanted to get into the minutiae of it and really explore that."

What Is Happy Hogan's Role In The Movie?

Happy Hogan is clearly going to play a large role in proceedings moving forward but beyond what we've seen in the trailers, what should we expect from Tony Stark's old friend in this movie? 

"Similar to Peter, who lost his mentor in Tony... you know, Happy has been there since the very beginning. I think a big part of this story is trying to find your place in the world if the center of your world is gone. I've always liked Happy as a character, and to use him to explore some of these things was really exciting. To explore a world without Tony, who was the man that created Iron Man."

Will The Vulture Return?

Since the start, reliable sources have claimed that Michael Keaton will reprise his role as The Vulture in Spider-Man: Far From Home, something which has led to a lot of speculation about the formation of the Sinister Six. Unfortunately, it sounds like neither he nor Liz (Laura Harrier) will appear. "Keaton is not in the movie, and Laura is not in the movie," Watts states, shooting down those rumours.

Will The Action Be Bigger In Scale This Time?

Spider-Man: Homecoming didn't hold back in terms of action but Peter Parker was very inexperienced and things were relatively small in scale. So, how will things change this time around? 

"[In] terms of a pure filmmaking level, I really wanted to turn up the action and make that huge," the director reveals. "In the last movie, we kept things a little bit smaller, intentionally, to remind people why they love Spider-Man. And without changing the tone, I wanted to keep that ground-level relatability, but also turn up the level of action to create something really spectacular. I wanted to show people things that they've never seen before at the movies."

Is Spider-Man Trying To Fill The Void Iron Man Left?

One of the biggest themes in the new trailer is Peter Parker's attempt to fill the void that's been left by Iron Man's death. The question is, can he really take Iron Man's place in the MCU? 

"Now, the world is asking him to step up, and he's not sure whether he's ready for that level of responsibility," Watts explains. "Like, he's still a 16-year-old kid from Queens. It's something I can relate, too. I remember being a kid and you desparately want to be treated as an adult. But then suddenly you're treated as an adult, and suddenly you realize that maybe it was better back when I was being treated as a kid. Once you cross that threshold, there's no going back."

Will Characters From Homecoming Be Five Years Older?

While it appears as if most of Peter Parker's classmates were dusted by Thanos, surely some of the characters we met last time will no be five years older? Well, Watts confirms that will be the case in the sequel but doesn't name names. "Yeah, that's one of the fun things that we get to play with -- the sort of real-world, ground-level implications of something like that. You don't get to see any of the fallout in Endgame, and we get to explore that in our movie. It's really interesting and fun."

Is There More To The Movie Than The Trailers Let On?

Heading into Captain Marvel, we all thought that the Skrulls would be the movie's villains but the reality was much different. Asked if the there's more to the wall-crawler's latest adventure than meets the eye, the director says: "You know, for a trailer that has a lot of stuff in it, it's just really scratching the surface." We'll just have to wait and see what he means by that...
