Only a few more days remain before Spider-Man: Far From Home sees its global release. Acting as the final chapter in Marvel‘s Infinity Saga, a key piece of information has just been shared today: the official runtime. According to a new listing from the British Board of Film Classification, the Homecoming sequel will run in at 129 minutes (two hours and nine minutes).
What also makes this runtime so special is that it confirms a popular fan theory about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That theory being that all films in the first three Phases would add up to 3,000 minutes, which coincidentally parallels Tony Stark/Iron Man‘s “I love you 3,000” line in Avengers: Endgame.
On the final films of the Infinity Saga Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said:
“We’ve been working for many years on Infinity War and Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Those were the films that were culminating the entire Infinity Saga of the MCU. And as we were working on Endgame we realized that the true end of the entire Infinity Saga, the final film of Phase 3, had to be Spider-Man: Far From Home, because — spoiler — we lose Tony Stark at the end of Endgame.
The relationship between Peter Parker and Tony Stark is so special over the five films that Tom Holland has portrayed Spider-Man in the MCU, that we needed to see where his journey went, and see how does Spider-Man step out of the shadow of his mentor, Tony Stark, and become the true hero that he was always meant to be. And it’s for that reason that Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home are essentially two pieces of the same story, and it’s not over yet until Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
Spider-Man: Far From Home lands in theaters July 2. Avengers: Endgame also sees a re-release this weekend.
