Marvel and Sony Confirm Spider-Man: No Way Home’s Runtime
Despite all the mystery surrounding Spider-Man: No Way Home, one thing is certain: Sony and Marvel Studios pulled out all of the stops for Peter Parker’s next big screen outing. With Benedict Cumberbatch putting in a guest appearance as Doctor Strange and at least five major supervillains coming back into the fold, the film is poised to be the biggest Spidey adventure yet. And now, it officially has a runtime to match. Collider has confirmed that No Way Home is 150 minutes (or two-and-a-half hours) long. No Way Home‘s runtime.
No Way Home’s runtime easily makes it the longest Spider-Man movie in the history of the franchise. Previously, the record was held by The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which has a runtime of 142 minutes. Some fans might find this worrisome, since both that movie and Spider-Man 3 were famously criticized for being too long. But since Marvel has proven itself capable of handling lengthy flicks with lots of characters, it might not make the same mistakes.
Regardless, the film is already guaranteed to be a box office success. Box Office Pro brings word that No Way Home is currently tracking to make between $190 and $250 million in its opening weekend. This would make it the first MCU release to debut with over $200 million since Avengers: Endgame arrived in 2019. And it looks like the studios are looking to safeguard against spoiler leaks until the very end. Today’s press screenings will reportedly only show 40 minutes of the film ahead of the press junket this weekend. However, critics will be invited to the Los Angeles premiere in order to publish their full reviews.
Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters on December 17.
