The much-awaited superhero film “Captain America: Civil War” has a running time of two hours and 27 minutes, making it the longest film from Marvel Studios till date.
It’s four minutes longer than the previous title holder, 2012’s “The Avengers”, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Captain America: Civil War” is likely to need the expanded length.
In addition to pitting two teams of superheroes against each other and tying up the Winter Soldier plot left dangling in the previous movie, the feature will also introduce two new players to the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland).
While it may be the longest Marvel movie to date, it’s far from the longest superhero movie released. This month’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” runs 151 minutes, while 2012’s “The Dark Knight Rises” ran an impressive 165 minutes.
“Captain America: Civil War” opens in US theatres May 5.
