It's become apparent that Spider-Man: No Way Home is going to be one of Marvel Studios' biggest, most ambitious movies to date. Of course, an adventure that grand in scale requires a decent runtime, so just how long will the threequel be? According to a new report, 2 hours and 28 minutes.
That places it behind only Avengers: Endgame (3 hours and 2 minutes), Eternals (2 hours and 37 minutes), and Avengers: Infinity War (2 hours and 29 minutes). We've independently confirmed a two-and-a-half-hour runtime with Sony Pictures, so this figure is correct.
This runtime includes credits (and post-credits scenes), of course, and hopefully means Marvel Studios' first foray into the live-action Multiverse is given the space it needs to breathe. We know of at least five villains set to appear, and if those other Spider-Men also show up, then 148 minutes sounds about right.
Among the film's confirmed cast members are Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jon Favreau, Jacob Batalon, Marisa Tomei, J. B. Smoove, Benedict Wong, J.K. Simmons, Alfred Molina, and Jamie Foxx. Based on the new trailer, we can now add Willem Dafoe, Thomas Haden Church, and Rhys Ifans to that impressive list of actors (fingers crossed for Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield).
Spider-Man: No Way Home arrives in U.S. on December 17 and in the UK on December 15.
