‘Captain America: Civil War’ Runtime Revealed, Will Be Longest Marvel Movie Yet

'Captain America: Civil War' Runtime Revealed, Will Be Longest Marvel Movie Yet

Last month, when the 2-hour 31-minute running time of “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” was revealed, there was a knee-jerk reaction in many corners of the internet of “sigh, too long.” Zack Snyder has since clarified his movie is actually 2 hours and 22 minutes plus credits, but he can probably rest a bit easier knowing the folks over at Marvel are also gearing up to numb the butts of moviegoers this spring.

AMC Theaters has revealed that the running time for “Captain America: Civil War” is 2 hours and 27 minutes, making it the longest Marvel movie yet. That’s six minutes longer than “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” and four minutes longer than “The Avengers,” but perhaps that makes sense given that ‘Civil War’ is essentially an Avengers movie, featuring almost all the characters from the MCU. And unlike Snyder’s movie, which will spare you a few minutes due to credits, audiences will be sitting through right to the end of ‘Civil War’ for the now standard post-credits scene.

Get ready for an epic sit when ‘Civil War’ opens on May 6th.

Revenant and Hateful Eight could have been 30-60 min less in the theatre experience and get an extended cut later. I enjoyed those movies, but they felt both a little to long to me, at home on the other side, I love to explore more.


It’s more of an issue to the theaters that want to show it as many times as it can in a single day.


I never understood why running time is such an issue. Roger Ebert was right when he said, "No good movie is too long and no bad movie is too short."


So, basically, the actual movie will run about two hours, with twenty-seven minutes of credits tacked-on.
