Fans of “Captain America: Civil War” will have to prepare buckets of pop corn as the film is set to become Marvel’s longest movie to date.
According to Event Cinemas, the upcoming American superhero film will have a run time of 146 minutes, which is about 2 hours and 26 minutes. If this is accurate then this puts “Captain America: Civil War” on par with director Snyder’s “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” which has a similar screen time. But of course nothing is really confirmed at this point. As noted by Comic Book, the reported “Captain America: Civil War’s” runtime is still unofficial.
Nevertheless, fans will definitely have lots to look forward to. The action scene where all the superheores will have a standoff is set to run for a whole amazing 15 minutes. And this action-packed scene is shot with the latest state-of-the-art IMAX camera – the IMAX/ARRI.
During an interview with Screen Rant, co-director Joe Russo added some more details about the new IMAX camera. “This whole sequence is in IMAX, it’s about a 15-minute sequence. It’s the only one that we’re doing on the camera. The camera literally just rolled off the press like a week before we started using it. It’s an IMAX 65, so it’s the ARRI’s 65. It’s a join camera between ARRI’s and IMAX,” the director said.
“Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chadwick Boseman, Don Cheadle, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Sebastian Stan, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo, Martin Freeman and William Hurt.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
