How Many Minutes Is the Whole Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Are you a Marvel fan wondering how many minutes it would take to watch the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)? Well, look no further! We’ve done the math so you don’t have to.

The MCU is a collection of 23 films, spanning over a decade, that tell the story of our favorite superheroes. From Iron Man to Spider-Man: Far From Home, each movie adds a piece to this epic puzzle. But just how long would it take to watch them all back-to-back?

Well, if you were to watch every single movie in the MCU, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is considered the final film in Phase Three of the franchise, it would take you approximately 3,000 minutes or 50 hours. Yes, you read that right – 50 hours!

To put it into perspective – that’s over two days of non-stop movie watching. But if that seems daunting and you want to break it down into more manageable chunks, here’s how it breaks down:

Phase One:
1. Iron Man (2008) – 126 minutes
2. The Incredible Hulk (2008) – 112 minutes
3. Iron Man 2 (2010) – 124 minutes

Thor (2011) – 115 minutes
5. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) – 124 minutes
6. The Avengers (2012) – 143 minutes

Total runtime for Phase One: 744 minutes or approximately 12 hours and 24 minutes.

Phase Two:
7. Iron Man 3 (2013) – 130 minutes
8. Thor: The Dark World (2013) – 112 minutes
9. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) -136 minutes

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) -121 minutes
11. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015) – 141 minutes
12. Ant-Man (2015) – 118 minutes

Total runtime for Phase Two: 758 minutes or approximately 12 hours and 38 minutes.

Phase Three:
13. Captain America: Civil War (2016) – 147 minutes
14. Doctor Strange (2016) – 115 minutes
15. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 (2017) -136 minutes
16. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) -133 minutes
17. Thor: Ragnarok (2017) -130 minutes

Black Panther (2018) -135 minutes
19. Avengers: Infinity War (2018) -149 minutes
20. Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018) -118 minutes
21. Captain Marvel (2019) -123 minutes
22. Avengers: Endgame (2019) -181 minutes
23. Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019) -129 minutes

Total runtime for Phase Three: 2,185 or approximately 36 hours and 25 minutes.

As you can see, Phase Three is where the movies start to get longer with Avengers: Endgame clocking in at a whopping three hours! But don’t let that deter you from watching them all.

In conclusion, if you’re up for the challenge of watching every single MCU movie, it will take you a total of around 50 hours or two days of non-stop movie watching. But if that seems like too much, break it down into manageable chunks by phase or even by individual movies.

So grab some snacks, settle in on the couch, and get ready to embark on an epic journey with your favorite superheroes!
