The recent release of the first trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home has already fueled very high expectations of fans for one of the most anticipated films of the year, and now the possible duration of the new adventure of the wall climber of Marvel has emerged online.
To this third installment, will be added the appearances of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Jamie Foxx as Electro, and Alfred Molina as Doc oct, to which according to the rumors we have heard throughout its production, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield could be added as the wall-crawlers from the films by Sam Raimi and Marc Webb respectively. ( We already have the confirmation of Garfield’s appearance, thanks to the leaks from the shoot ).
The latest trailer has made us believe that the appearance of these characters is possible thanks to Doctor Strange, who, in the film, will receive a desperate Peter Parker who will ask him to perform a spell to make the world forget that he is Spider-man, unleashing the power of the multiverse accidentally.
Spider-Man No Way Home Movie Runtime
The indiscretion comes from Cineworld, a chain of cinemas based in the United Kingdom that has included in its section dedicated to the film a caption dedicated to the minutes, which apparently would be around 150 minutes, two and a half hours.
It may be a so-called indicative ‘placeholder’ waiting for Sony Pictures to communicate the official duration, as the accuracy of the minutes also suggests. However, we are awaiting any confirmations or denials.
Awaiting For Official Confirmation
This duration is undoubtedly within the normal for a film of this size. First of all, there will be many characters and stories to tell, which takes a long time to cover the whole story. And secondly, this length of time is unprecedented. A running time of 150 minutes would make No Way Home the longest UMC movie other than Avengers. Still, it would only be three minutes longer than Captain America: The Winter Soldier and about 15-25 minutes longer than the rest. Of Marvel movies. It remains to be seen if the study officially confirms this length of time, but it seems pretty likely for now.
Directed again by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: No Way Home will see Peter Parker grapple with the aftermath of J. Jonah Jameson’s revelation of his secret identity. Therefore, the spider will ask for help from none other than Doctor Strange, whose spell will cause a disruption of the Multiverse that will bring some old enemies of Spider-Man into the MCU, including the unforgettable Doc Ock by Alfred Molina.
Unless there are further surprise postponements, the film will debut in theaters worldwide at Christmas 2021.
