The runtime for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is a first for the MCU’s Ant-Man franchise.
But that’s not the only way Ant-Man 3 is breaking the mold.
Starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and newcomer Kathyrn Newton as Cassie Lang, Quantumania isn’t just launching Phase 5 of the MCU but also ushering in the Multiverse Saga’s big bad, Kang the Conqueror.
For such a different and high-stakes film, it makes sense for its length to be a departure as well. And now, fans have official confirmation on just how long Quantumania will be.
How Long Is Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?
Fandango has listed Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania‘s runtime at 2 hours and 5 minutes which is a new record for the Ant-Man franchise.
Marvel Studios’ original Ant-Man from 2015 had a runtime of 1 hour and 57 minutes while 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp spanned 1 hour and 58 minutes.
This appears to be a trend with MCU threequels which typically skew longer than their sequels and original films.
Iron Man and Iron Man 2‘s runtimes were topped by Iron Man 3 at 2 hours and 10 minutes. The Captain America films followed suit as evidenced by Captain America: Civil War‘s posted 2 hour and 27 runtime.
The same applies to Avengers: Infinity War, Thor: Ragnarok, and Spider-Man: No Way Home, all of which were longer than their franchise’s previous films.
For comparison, the following is a list of runtimes of the latest MCU films from 2022:
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives in theaters on February 17.
