We’re only a month away from the release of Marvel Studios’ next blockbuster, Black Panther. The film’s marketing campaign is expected to heat up soon, with some sort of sneak peek airing on ESPN’s College Football National Championship next week. Now, we may know the movie’s runtime.
Event Cinemas lists the runtime for Black Panther as 2 hours and 15 minutes (or 135 minutes). It’s unconfirmed if this is the final runtime, but if it is, it wouldn’t be shocking. The last three Marvel movies (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok) all had runtimes of 130+ minutes, so for the next movie to have a similar runtime makes sense. Plus, 135 minutes is plenty of time to establish T’Challa’s world, the villains’ motivation(s), and whatever else the film needs to do.
Again, with a month to go until the film’s release, this runtime could change. If it does, we’ll update accordingly. Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
Black Panther is scheduled to hit theaters on February 16th. The 18th installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis. Ryan Coogler directs from a script that he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole.
