The length of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has reportedly been disclosed, and it might be the longest Ant-Man film ever. In 2015’s Ant-Man, Paul Rudd made his film debut as Scott Lang from the Marvel Comics. Since then, the superhero with the ability to shrink and grow has grown to be a crucial aspect of the MCU, featuring in Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: End Game in addition to another solo film with Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp (Janet Van Dyne).

Naturally, the MCU has moved on from many of the characters it first presented in its early stages. However, Ant-Man remains a key component of Marvel’s plans, and a third standalone film is about to be released. Of course, an exciting teaser for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania has already been published, and now fans could have just learnt how long the upcoming MCU film will go. According to Fandango, the latest Ant-Man instalment has a runtime of 2 hours and 5 minutes, making it by a very slim margin the longest Ant-Man film to date. Ant-Man and the Wasp ran for an hour and 58 minutes, while the first Ant-Man ran for an hour and 57 minutes.

With the hit Spider-Man: No Way Home, which had a runtime of 148 minutes, the situation with regard to the length of MCU films didn’t get any better. Thor: Love and Thunder and Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness followed, both clocking in at relatively brief runs of 126 minutes and 119 minutes, respectively, in 2022. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which lasted a whopping 161 minutes, completed Phase 4 after that.

With a runtime that, when compared to the MCU films fans have been treated to in recent years, may feel a touch on the short side, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania now launches Phase 5. But a shorter running length seems acceptable given where Ant-Man stands in relation to the larger Marvel universe. It would be absurd to make an Ant-Man movie the size of Wakanda Forever. Given the superhero weariness that some believe has already started to set in at the box office, it will be fascinating to watch if future MCU films likewise strive to keep things closer to the 120-minute mark.
