Some films are known for being extremely long, such as Titanic, Avatar, and The Jacksons: An American Dream. However, a sequel to a beloved Marvel adaptation that accumulated numerous awards and accolades might be getting added to the list of very long films.
According to Comicbook.com, fans will reportedly be sitting in the theater for the upcoming film Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), the sequel film to Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019), for at least 2 and a half hours. This will make the film the longest entry in the Sony and Spider-Man universe. Spider-Man: Homecoming was 2 hours and 13 minutes long, and Spider-Man: Far From Home was 2 hours and 9 minutes long.
The upcoming sequel is expected to have more characters than ever seen before. The new film is going to be bringing together Peter Parker and Doctor Strange, which is sure to be an earth-crumbling fusion that will leave fans begging for more.
The amount of interaction that is expected to take place in this film is uncanny, and some fans worry that the new film will be convoluted due to the number of characters while trying to stay focused on the main storyline. There have also been claims that Sony and Marvel had to do multiple do-overs for certain scenes to help alleviate this issue.
The upcoming sequel will be the last time we will see Tom Holland star as Spider-Man in the franchise. Fans can also expect to see Zendaya (MJ), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan), Jamie Foxx (Electro), Marisa Tomei (May Parker), Alfred Molina (Doctor Octopus), Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds) and so many more in the star-studded film.
The official teaser trailer and synopsis of the upcoming film have been posted below.
“With Spider-Man’s identity now revealed, our friendly neighborhood web-slinger is unmasked and no longer able to separate his normal life as Peter Parker from the high stakes of being a superhero. When Peter asks for help from Doctor Strange, the stakes become even more dangerous, forcing him to discover what it truly means to be Spider-Man.”
