We're just a few weeks away from the premiere of Spider-Man: No Way Home and there are more exciting details revealed about the highly anticipated sequel. For instance, the official runtime for the third Spider-Man movie may have been revealed and it could be the longest film in the current trilogy.
It's no secret that there's a lot to deal with in Spider-Man 3. After all, the movie will explore what happened when Peter Parker's identity was revealed and how he tried to deal with it by asking for Doctor Strange's help. Then there's the whole opening the multiverse problem that led to villains from other dimensions going after them. With that in mind, No Way Home is going to be a very long film.
But just how many hours do we have to sit in a theater to fully enjoy the new Spider-Man movie? A new leak points out that No Way Home is going to be two hours and 28 minutes long. That means it's 15 minutes longer than Spider-Man: Homecoming and 18 minutes longer than Spider-Man: Far From Home.
We're not surprised that Spider-Man 3 is a lot longer than its predecessors. After all, it's going to be the last in the trilogy and there is little doubt that the cast and crew want to make sure they give it a proper finish. In addition to that, there's a lot of things to look forward to in the sequel including the possible return of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as the alternate Peter Parkers. Needless to say, we are ready to spend almost two hours and a half in a cinema later this year.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is directed by Jon Watts and stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, Marisa Tomei, J. B. Smoove, Benedict Wong, Jamie Foxx, Alfred Molina, Willem Dafoe, Thomas Haden Church, and Rhys Ifans. The film will premiere in theaters on December 17, 2021.
