With the release of Captain America: Civil War drawing near, details about the movie are gradually being revealed. Over the past few weeks, information about the characters and the Marvel film's storyline have been popping up, but now we're getting an idea on how long the movie will be playing out.
According to Australia's Event Cinemas, they are listing Captain America: Civil War to run at 146 minutes. That's 2 hours and 26 minutes. There's no official word yet from Marvel Studios, but it appears that Civil War, which is their 13th MCU film, is the studio's longest film so far.
It's worth noting that the runtime of Captain America: Civil War's rival DC film, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, is only a few minutes longer. It appears longer runtimes are becoming a trend in comic book films, which I personally think is great. At least audiences are getting their money's worth in terms of the movie's length. While a longer movie doesn't necessarily guarantee film quality, it's to be expected that each character in Civil War will get an appropriate amount of screen time.

Civil War Official Synopsis:
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel's Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.
