Sony’s Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse movie’s full runtime has reportedly been revealed online via new information posted to Twitter today, potentially confirming that the sequel will be far longer than its predecessor at a total runtime of 140 minutes (2.3 hours). Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, the first instalment of the franchise, has a total runtime of 1h 56m (117 minutes), making its Across The Spider-Verse sequel a full 23 minutes longer, reportedly confirming recent rumours and speculation the new instalment will be far greater in length.
This new information comes from a well-known Twitter account that goes by the name Cryptic HD QUALITY, with a new tweet being posted just today captioned with “I’ve received an official dcp runtime of 140 minutes – 2.3 hours.”, reportedly revealing the theatrical runtime for the sequel. However, this news has yet to be confirmed by the studio, cast, and/or crew of Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse and should be taken with a grain of salt, as without confirmation, fans may have to wait until the June release to truly find out.
Why Across The Spider-Verse Could Be Longer
Despite the reported runtime only being just less than half an hour longer than the first movie, the sequel having a longer runtime would make sense due to the scale and ambition of featuring far more characters, with the sequel set to have multiple antagonists amongst the already well-known fact that Across The Spider-Verse will include an almost uncountable amount of Spider-People variants, which the official trailer revealed to be in the masses, it’s safe to assume that the reported runtime bears some accuracy.
Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse comes to theatres on June 2, 2023.
