In two short months, Captain Marvel will finally be upon us. As with all Marvel Studios movies, much of the film itself has been kept under wraps. Despite all the secrecy, though, we might have discovered the official run time of the Brie Larson-starring movie.
Following the arrival of the new year, the AMC Theatres website has unveiled its movie page for Captain Marvel, ahead of the advanced ticket sales period. The page itself offers a brief synopsis of Captain Marvel along with a few pictures of the film. The revealing information comes next to the release date -- the run time of the film, which is marked as '2 hours and 10 minutes' or 130 minutes.
Of course, this is far from a confirmation, given that Marvel hasn't confirmed the movie's run time. However, it's still possible that AMC has the right number. After all, 130 minutes is par for the course for most solo Marvel Studios film. 2017's Thor: Ragnarok had an official run time of 130 minutes exactly, while 2018's Black Panther clocked in at 134 minutes.
It was recently rumored that the highly-anticipated Avengers: Endgame would have a run time close to three hours long, although that also hasn't been confirmed. Avengers: Infinity War's 149 minutes length was longer than your average Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, but the film's story -- and large ensemble cast -- also meant a longer run time was needed. The same is expected for Endgame, which will be the conclusion to Marvel's sprawling, years-in-the-making movie saga.
The arrival of Brie Larson's Carol Danvers was first teased in the after-credits scene of Infinity War. The character will first appear Captain Marvel, a prequel tale set in the '90s. Then, the superhero is set to join the ranks of the Avengers to help defeat Thanos in Endgame.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, and Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace and Annette Bening in as-yet-undisclosed roles. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
