Cineplex reports that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will last 161 minutes, or 2 hours and 41.
if so, it would be the longest film of all Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe , as it would surpass
both Eternals and Spider-Man: No Way Home. (both stop at 2 hours and 37 minutes).
It would certainly not be surprising. The MCU movies have in fact accustomed us to considerable durations, even if the latest Doctor Strange and Thor were more contained. In addition, this sequel will have a lot of meat in the fire: it will have to face the disappearance of T’Challa and the mourning of his friends, subjects and relatives; he will have to introduce Namor and the kingdom of Talocan, with their motives; will also have to introduce Riri Williams / Ironheart ; tell the evolution of Shuri – or whoever is behind the mask – into Black Panther ; and resolve the battle between Wakanda and Talocan.
In any case, the duration has not yet been formalized by Disney and Marvel Studios , so let’s take it with a grain of salt.
Vii remember that Empire has published the covers dedicated to the film and three photos ( here , here and here ). Some scenes were shown at D23, as we told you in this article . The release is expected on November 9 in Italian cinemas.
We will keep you posted.
