According to a post on Australia’s Event Cinemas website, the running time of Captain America: Civil War has been revealed: 146 minutes. That’s just shy of 2 and a half hours long, making it the longest Marvel Cinematic Universe film to date* if it holds true. For comparison, the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has been officially clocked at 151 minutes long, although DC Comics have released even longer films than that in the past.
Most Marvel films hover at around or slightly over two hours long. That said, given the jam-packed nature of Civil War, it’s not surprising at all that it would land on the longer end of the spectrum. The longest MCU films to date have been The Avengers movies, with the first clocking in at 143 minutes and Age of Ultron finishing out at 141 minutes in length. A 146 minute running time for Civil War isn’t much longer than either. It’s a fitting length for a film tasked with finishing out the Captain America trilogy, telling the tale of the rift that occurs between The Avengers, and introducing the likes of Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Baron Zemo into the fold.
* – In case you are curious, there’s actually a tie for the shortest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Both The Incredible Hulk (2008) and Thor: The Dark World (2013) are 112 minutes long.
