Captain America: Civil War Run Time Revealed


For those of you wondering how long Captain America: Civil War is, we might have an answer for you. According to Event Cinemas in Australia, they're listing the Captain America: Civil War run time at 146 minutes, which is 2 hours and 26 minutes. This puts it on par with Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice which has a similar run time.

Now, this is not a studio official number so it might change between now and when the movie releases, but it's a good indicator on what they're targeting. This would also mean that the 13th Marvel Studios film will also be the longest yet.

The film is based on a 2006 crossover story from Marvel Comics which pitted Captain America against Iron Man in a conflict where the larger question was how much freedom Marvel's superheroes should be expected to give up for national security. In the comics, the story concluded with Captain America in custody, and the nextCaptain America story arc started with his assassination on the way to trial.

Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
