It’s been described by star Tom Holland as feeling like “the end of a franchise”, and if a new report from Brazilian cinema chain Ingresso (via Comic Book) is accurate, then it seems Spider-Man: No Way Home is boasting a running time befitting of an epic conclusion to Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man story.
According to reports, No Way Home will clock in at 159 minutes (two hours and 39 minutes), which will make it the longest Spider-Man movie to date (a record currently held by The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on 141 minutes) and second only to Avengers: Endgame and its bottom-numbing 181 minute duration when it comes to the longest chapters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The running time is yet to be confirmed by Marvel and/or Sony, but with so much seemingly crammed into the movie – the continuation of Peter’s MCU story, Doctor Strange, Doc Ock and other returning villains/heroes, and some multiversal madness – then it’s certainly not beyond the realm of possibility that the film will clock in around the two-and-a-half hour mark.

Hopefully we’ll get some official confirmation soon, but in the meantime, here’s a new TV spot which is essentially just a recycling of the trailer…
