Captain America: Civil War definitely won’t be rated R but the final film in the trilogy, which has been described as an emotional horror flick, is about to be hella long.

According to Comic Book Resources, the movie has earned a theatrical running time of 146 minutes, or 2 hours and 26 minutes, which would make it Marvel’s longest film to date. It won’t be hard to fill up airtime with its stacked lineup that includes Captain America, Iron Man, Falcon, Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Bucky Barnes, Vision, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Spider-Man and even Bilbo Baggins.

However, don’t get too excited. This time is subject to change. The film will center on the government’s struggle to implement a system of accountability after the massive destruction left by the Avengers in the last film. Steve Rogers believes the superheroes should operate freely while Tony Stark supports government oversight. The debate will escalate to all out war as fellow superheroes are forced to pick a side.

The lengthy film is scheduled to hit theaters this May.
