Sitting comfortably? Good. The runtime of Spider-Man: Homecoming has just been revealed, but how does it compare to the rest of the MCU’s movies? Let’s clock up how Spidey’s latest offering fares when compared to the bum-numbing lengths of Marvel superhero marathons such as Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War.
Event Cinemas (H/T Screen Rant) has Spider-Man: Homecoming’s runtime listed as 130 minutes (2 hours 10 mins) which, interestingly enough, is the shortest Spidey flick since 2004’s Spider-Man 2, aka the Last Good Spider-Man Movie.
But we’re here for MCU comparisons. Deep breath, now…
The Avengers (143 minutes)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (141 minutes)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (137 minutes)
Captain America: Civil War (136 minutes)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (136 minutes)
Spider-Man: Homecoming (130 minutes)
Iron Man 3 (130 minutes)
Iron Man (126 minutes)
Iron Man 2 (125 minutes)
Captain America: The First Avenger (124 minutes)
Guardians of the Galaxy (122 minutes)
Ant-Man’s relatively tiny (obviously) running time of 116 minutes
Doctor Strange (115 minutes)
Thor (114 minutes)
The Incredible Hulk (112 minutes)
Thor: The Dark World (112 minutes)
That makes Spider-Man: Homecoming the 6th longest MCU movie. The five that beat it are, unsurprisingly, the pair of Avengers movies, Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 – probably thanks to the five post-credits scenes – and, finally, Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Spidey’s latest 130-minute offering also runs for the exact same amount of time as Iron Man 3, so get your stopwatches ready for that one, as it’s going down to the second.
