With the North American release of Ant-Man and the Wasp fast approaching, Heroic Hollywood is reporting that the official running time for the Marvel sequel has been set at 118 minutes – one minute longer than the 2015 original.
Assuming this is accurate, Ant-Man and the Wasp will become the first sub-two hour Marvel release since 2016’s Doctor Strange, and the sixth shortest MCU movie to date after The Incredible Hulk (112 minutes), Thor: The Dark World (112 minutes), Thor (114 minutes), Doctor Strange (115 minutes) and Ant-Man (117 minutes).
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes Ant-Man and The Wasp, a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a super hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside the Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from the past.
Ant-Man and The Wasp sees Peyton Reed returning to the director’s chair and stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), Michael Pena (Luis), David Dastmalchian (Kurt), Abby Ryder Fortson (Cassie Lang), Judy Greer (Maggie), Bobby Cannavale (Paxton) and T.I. (Dave), while new additions to the cast include Michelle Pfeiffer as Janet Van Dyne, Laurence Fishburne as Dr. Bill Foster/Goliath, Hannah John-Kamen as The Ghost, Walton Goggins as Sonny Burch and Randall Park as Jimmy Woo.
