THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN Runtime Clocks In At Over Two Hours?

Despite past reports indicating that The Amazing Spider-Man would be a paltry 90 minutes long, a reliable source now indicates that Marc Webb's highly anticipated reboot will be much longer than expected. Read on for details.

Stark Industries RU has been a very reliable source of information in the past (they frequently release new images and artwork before anyone else) and have today taken to their Twitter account to reveal that the runtime of The Amazing Spider-Man is just under two and a half hours! Of course, we are currently searching to find out where this information originated from, so stay tuned to CBM for further updates.



Of course, if this accurate it's great news for anyone who was worried that those reports of a 90 minute runtime were the real deal. As the track list for The Amazing Spider-Man's soundtrack revealed last night (find that HERE) it would appear as if director Marc Webb is going to squeeze a lot of story into the reboot, so a runtime which reflects that is very welcome. Sound off with your thoughts on this in the usual place.

STARRING:

Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy
Rhys Ifans as Curt Connors/The Lizard
Martin Sheen as Uncle Ben
Sally Fields as Aunt May
Denis Leary as George Stacy

RELEASE DATE: July 3rd, 2012.

I don't know if 16 minutes over two hours qualifies as "well over" but still great news none the less. That means every character has the proper amount of time to be fleshed out and the narrative won't be rushed.

So excited for this movie I would prefer it to be a bit longer but at least it's not 90 mins like previously reported
PaulRom - 5/23/2012, 3:40 AM
Sounds good to me.
mrexcellent - 5/23/2012, 3:43 AM
I don't know. Webb says they're coming in really close to two hours, and that they have their final cut already. If this 16 minutes doesn't include credits, then I think it sounds too long to be consistent with what Webb reported.

AS LONG AS IT'S A COMPLETE AND WELL DONE STORY TIME DON'T MATTER
calin88 - 5/23/2012, 3:50 AM
90 min origin story would suck, 136 min sounds much better
CPBuff22 - 5/23/2012, 3:55 AM
@RidiculousFanBoyDemands - Its funny you should say that. I believe that was what I said when theaters were listing TDKR at 2:16 and everyone claimed it would be well over two hours, possibly even three.
VinzClortho - 5/23/2012, 4:03 AM
Hell credits are 10 mins.

2 hours and 16 minutes should be good. Thats only a few less than The Avengers.
CPBuff22 - 5/23/2012, 4:23 AM
@FrankieDedo - Holy Crap, that team is AWESOME. I mean you got a Green Lantern, a Jedi, & a Dinosaur. Forget the rest of the team that is an epic win right there.
Chaplin - 5/23/2012, 4:30 AM
excellent! Now there's enough time to fully flesh out the characters without sacrificing action and suspense, or vice versa
kurekurcubic - 5/23/2012, 4:38 AM
ofcourse that is this long.no movie that is filming 6+ months can be less than 120/130 minutes

spider-giraffe-man scares me

i thought marc webb said this a while ago

I am one who loved the original Spider-Man trilogy, everyone says how they didn't stick to the comics when they know it's a lie. There were things they kept, some things they took and some that they added. This movie between what the previews show and what the run time apparently is, The Amazing Spider-Man is gonna have more from the comics as well as overall be a better film than the original. I can't wait!!! I've never been more excited for a villain in a CBM than I am for The Lizard, except for the origin part (like him being a scientist in Florida) everything else has been accurate of him and I think he'll be the best CGI villain ever. But that's just me.
TrueRedBlue - 5/23/2012, 5:11 AM
That's really good, actually.
himynameisnik - 5/23/2012, 5:19 AM
Great news, really looking forward to this
gulducati - 5/23/2012, 5:19 AM
A good 90 min. movie is preferable to a bad 120 min. movie. So this doesn't mean anything until we see it.
2010warmachine - 5/23/2012, 5:56 AM
HELL YEAH!!!
Rodimus9 - 5/23/2012, 6:00 AM
Seems like this is the next evolution of CBMs and such. I mean, to properly tell a story that's been established through hundreds of comics in anything less than 100 minutes is ridiculously Green Lanternish...see what I did there?

good,good,more Spidey goodness.

Good news to wake up to.
antonio - 5/23/2012, 6:25 AM
Me likes a lot. Perfect run time for this movie, imo.
MadTitan - 5/23/2012, 6:43 AM
either that would be a redeeming factor or another burdensome minutes to agonize over for an extended time at the theater.

i care not. it's not the Spidey i knew. thus.

pass.

Wildaniel - 5/23/2012, 6:49 AM
Should be longer, lol.
MB007 - 5/23/2012, 7:10 AM
@Teabag

You're [frick]ing right, dude!!!! :-)
marvel72 - 5/23/2012, 7:14 AM
cool,all comic book movies should be 2 hours plus.
Shaman - 5/23/2012, 7:34 AM
After watching both trailers on the big screen, right in front of the Avengers, Amazing Spider-man is actually looking better than TDKR. That's something i would have never, and i do mean ever, have thought possible. Not in a million years.
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/23/2012, 7:56 AM
Thats more like it. :)

tea@ You´re right Raimi get Spidey´s backstory right but his Spidey´s problem was the cornyness and Maguire who i never liked... specially after the horrible third film.
This is more story and character wise and its probably more serious too and not so laughable i think. And i have high hopes we get to see the genius side of Peter Parker this time.

I think if they would combine the best parts from these both movies we would get the real Spider-Man movie. :)

But until then i cant wait to see this new take.
Ryguy88 - 5/23/2012, 7:58 AM
Shaman, you also stated that Wrath of the Titans looked better than TDKR, so, you know...
facehugger81 - 5/23/2012, 8:00 AM
@tea, I don´t find trouble not getting Daily Planet in this o any Spidey movie, after all, that's Supes, isn´t it? I hope this movie turns out a great experience, fingers crossed...

Cue for tea legendary chik-pics
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/23/2012, 8:19 AM
tea@ True if you look at it from that point of few.

It doesnt always need to be dark and gritty. The first two Spidey´s are good examples for that.
AlexDeLarge87 - 5/23/2012, 8:21 AM
The cornyness didnt strike me that much but thats a matter of taste i think.
mrexcellent - 5/23/2012, 8:24 AM
@Goomba:

I don't think Tea was doing a Raimi rant. He actually reminded me of a few basic facts that people often get wrong.

I've made the same observations myself, and yet, I'm happy for the changes. I think they lend themselves to an interesting new spin on a familiar tale, and I hope they nailed it, but time will tell. Super pumped for the film though, I think it has potential to be one of the greats. It definitely looks different than anything I've seen in the comic book world to date.
NextHero08 - 5/23/2012, 8:50 AM
Funny how when a shiny new Spider-man swings into town, everyone turns into Maguire haters. Can anybody say flip? I for one prefer the geek over the emo skater (more faithful to the comics since that's what everyones concerned about) and the way they showed his transformation (Bigger muscles, no more blurry vision, so on). I'm still on team Toby. Even after he got his spider powers, he was still a geek and THAT is Peter Parker.
Shaman - 5/23/2012, 8:53 AM
Ryguy88- Haha, Touché ol' chap ;) Hell, i even thought Wrath had better trailers than Avengers in terms of "visuals". Of course it doesn't mean anything in regards to the film's quality as Wrath painfully proved.

Teabag- Don't get me wrong, i couldn't be the least excited for TASM because i can't stand The Lizard as a stand alone villain and Spidey's garters get mine in a bunch every time i see his "suit", but it does visually look better than what i've seen of TDKR so far. I loved TDKR's last trailer but it just didn't reel me in as being an accurate representation of an epic finale. Maybe it's exactly what WB meant to envoke, personally it doesn't get me wet.

And i'm not even as much of a fan of Raimi's films as you are either. I personally felt the first one was good and it went downhill from it. I found the sequel very "meh" and the last was an abomination to screenwriting in general. I have yet to get the Spidey live action film i want to see. I guess a mix of both Raimi's and Webb's would be more what i'd prefer.
