CAPTAIN AMERICA 2 Is Marvel's Second-Longest Movie

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier approaching its release date, the official run-time has been revealed, suggesting that the sequel is Marvel Studios' second-longest outing. Check it out!

Considering directors Anthony & Joe Russo began editing as they were filming, and not to mention the positive word of mouth from test screening earlier this year, it's safe to say Marvel Studios has had a decent rough cut of Captain America: The Winter Soldier for some time now. However, with the inclusion of January's reshoots, we've now received official word from Stitch Kingdom that a final cut of the Marvel sequel has been signed, sealed, and delivered with a decent running time of 2 hours and 16 minutes. This makes the upcoming political thriller the longest "Phase Two" movie so far, and second-longest of all the Marvel Cinematic Universe ventures, following The Avengers (143 minutes). Anyhow, expect a Captain America: The Winter Soldier marketing push––clips, more posters & TV spots, talk show guest appearances, etc––as we move into March. What do you think?



After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy — the Winter Soldier. Starring Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Georges St-Pierre, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp and Maximiliano Hernández with Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Redford, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is directed by the team of Anthony & Joe Russo from a screenplay written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely and is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing the film. Executive producers on the project include Alan Fine, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee. The creative production team on the film includes director of photography Trent Opaloch, production designer Peter Wenham, editors Jeffrey Ford, A.C.E. and Mary Jo Markey, A.C.E. and three time Oscar®-nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is set for release on April 4, 2014.
