Marvel Studios is in the final stages of preparation for arguably its biggest solo movie to date in Spider-Man: No Way Home. With this film not only continuing from the shocking ending in Spider-Man: Far From Home but also making a handful of past Spider-Man movies canon with the MCU, the expectations for the action and drama in No Way Home are sky-high.
Featuring two distinct but connective storylines in its plot, Spider-Man: No Way Home has no shortage of material for fans to enjoy as the web-slinger completes his solo MCU trilogy. From asking Doctor Strange to help fix his identity reveal problem to dealing with a literal Multiverse’s worth of villains, Marvel’s final 2021 outing is one that’s talked about every day with how much is expected to come.
Rumors have already pointed to this threequel not only being the longest of all three MCU Spider-Man movies in runtime but also one of the longest Marvel Studios movies overall thanks to its reportedly chaotic multiversal plot.
Now, a new report supposedly confirmed this to not only be true but that those rumors were only the start of the madness.
How Long Is Spider-Man: No Way Home?
Ingresso, a Brazillian ticketing service owned by Fandango, has listed Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: No Way Home with a runtime of 2 hours and 39 minutes. This would make the threequel the longest solo movie in MCU history and the second-longest MCU movie ever, only behind Avengers: Endgame.

A Long Multiversal Thriller in No Way Home
Marvel Studios' first two Spider-Man movies came in closer to the average MCU runtime with Homecoming clocking in at 2 hours, 13 minutes and Far From Home boasting a runtime of 2 hours and 9 minutes. Although No Way Home will be nearly half an hour longer than both of its predecessors, it only seems appropriate thanks to the massive scope it's planning to deliver.
With this threequel being the first MCU outing to truly explore the Multiverse and its inner workings, it would seem that some of the runtime will be dedicated to providing details on how it works as Doctor Strange performs his impressive magic.
The only on-screen tease for this event came in the highly-discussed mid-credits scene from Venom: Let There Be Carnage, and with villains like Doc Ock and the Green Goblin in play, the MCU will have plenty of explaining to do on that front.
While No Way Home was expected to be a longer MCU movie, to see it come in longer than any film outside of Avengers: Endgame is truly an impressive feat. Peter Parker and his expansive team will be in for the biggest challenges of their lives, and fans should be thrilled to see that Marvel and Sony aren't looking to hold back on giving the full experience.
Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to premiere in theaters on December 17, 2021.
