Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Will Be Trilogy’s Longest Film

When the MCU closes out another trilogy this summer with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, it will do so in grand fashion. James Gunn has promised that the third installment will be the final chapter in the team’s story. This time around, not all of the Guardians will make it out alive, and to properly tell their last story, Gunn’s film will clock in the longest run time in the trilogy.

GOTG Vol 3 follows suit with Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Civil War which had greater run times than the preceding films. Gunn revealed via Instagram that Volume 3 would be the longest Guardians film. While a specific run-time was not revealed we know that we are getting at least 138 minutes since Volume 2 timed out at 137 minutes.

With a minimum of 138 minutes of run time, Guardians could be longer than any film we’ve seen in phases 4 and 5 of the MCU. Eternals, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are the only phase 4 films to clock in beyond 138 minutes.

Just getting a single minute of this film was a Herculean effort in and of itself. You will recall that Marvel briefly severed ties with James Gunn, pausing the project. The Guardians were initially slated to kick off Phase 4 but fell farther back due to COVID and Gunn’s involvement with The Suicide Squad. Gunn has since taken over the DCEU leading the creative development of films and shows.
