How Long Is Spider-Man: Far From Home?

Spider-Man: Far From Home has a lot riding on its release. Not only is this the first look at the Marvel universe after the heartbreaking events of Avengers: Endgame, but it's also the final film of the franchise's Phase Three, which means it's the end of the aptly named Infinity Saga. That's a lot for a film about our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man! And it's all supposed to go down in the span of one of the shortest runtimes for all of Marvel's Phase Three movies: 129 minutes.

Obviously, this isn't a bad thing. After sitting through the three hours and change of Endgame, fans are probably grateful for a shorter film with less need to rely on shifted pee breaks. But the shorter runtime isn't just a relief for our bladders. It also seemingly confirms a popular theory regarding the runtimes of Phase Three films — since the release of Endgame, fans have believed that the entire Infinity Saga will add up to a total of 3,000 minutes.

If your eyes have immediately welled up reading that number, you aren't the only one. Marvel fan Ashbio on Twitter pointed out that when you add Far From Home's two-hour plus runtime to the sum of all previously released Marvel movies, it equals 3,000, a seemingly direct reference to that infamous line exchanged between Tony Stark and his daughter, Morgan, in Endgame: "I Love You 3,000." Doesn't that just hit you right in the feels?

Marvel execs haven't commented on the theory — or mentioned the possibility of there being a huge significance to the saga's cumulative runtime — but considering how thoroughly planned out these films are, it's hard not to believe there's something to the theory. And even if there isn't, it's still a really sweet idea that makes FFH an even sweeter end to this legendary run of films.
