A recent update to the British Board of Film Classification website has listed Spider-Man: Homecoming with a runtime of 133 minutes. Although the runtime is a nice thing to know, without context of how the film flows it really means nothing yet.
A runtime near two hours, as Spider-Man: Homecoming‘s is, is perfect for comic book movies in my eyes. It’s long enough for plot points to be resolved, but not drawn out. As the MCU grows, more characters, references, and tie-ins will be included in each movie.
“A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.”
The film swings into theaters on July 7.
