The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever runtime officially stands revealed which makes the flick the second-longest film in the MCU behind Avengers: Endgame.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has a runtime of 2 hours and 41 minutes (161 minutes) as confirmed to THR by Disney.
Avengers: Endgame has a runtime of 3 hours and 2 minutes and compared to the first movie, Black Panther has a runtime of 2 hours and 15 minutes.
As noted, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever won’t be the longest movie in 2022, which belongs to DC and Matt Reeves’ The Batman, which has a 2 hour and 56 minute runtime.
Fans will have to contend with no Black Panther and revamped Namor
The first Black Panther made over $1.3 billion at the box office so it will be interesting to see how fans react to the sequel, which will see them sit through a longer movie without the titular character, T’Challa, and a revamped Namor.
In the story, the Wakandans fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. The heroes must band together to forge a new path for the kingdom.
Also starring Lupita Nyong’o (Nakia), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Florence Kasumba (Ayo), Dominique Thorne (Riri Williams), Michaela Coel (Aneka), Mabel Cadena (Namora), Alex Livinalli (Attuma) and Martin Freeman (Everett Ross), Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is directed by Ryan Coogler and is produced by Feige and Nate Moore, and gets released on Nov. 11.
