Marvel, I love you, but you have got to step up your poster game at some point.

But before we get to that, some exciting news has been revealed for all of you Marvel fans out there, as the runtime for Captain America: Civil War - possibly the studio’s most ambitious outing yet - has finally been revealed. After Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was revealed to have a 2 hour and 22 minute runtime recently as well (plus credits), it looks like both Marvel and DC are going to be bringing us some of their most dense films yet this year.

AMC Theatres has listed the Civil War runtime at 2 hours and 27 minutes, counting the film’s end credits and stinger scenes, which makes this Marvel’s longest film to date beating last year’s Age of Ultron, which ran at 2 hours and 21 minutes. Considering how many characters Civil War has too, and the deep central conflict it will have to show onscreen, the runtime seems to fit the premise and scope well.

Plus, if I’m going to trust any of the Marvel filmmakers to give us a solid, well-paced almost 2 and a half hour movie, it would be the Russo Brothers.

In addition to the runtime, and following the release of the Team Captain America posters yesterday, Marvel has unveiled a new lineup of character posters for the film, this time shining a spotlight on each of the Team Iron Man members, including Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), The Vision (Paul Bethany), and War Machine (Don Cheadle).

Check out the posters below:

And once again, Tom Holland’s Spider-Man is nowhere to be seen. Although, if any of the rumors are true, he might not be as decidedly Team Cap or Team Iron Man as some of the team’s other heroes.

Honestly, the posters themselves are kinda lackluster. Out of all of the Team posters that they could have done, just headshots of each character, without their masks for the most part too, just feel like missed opportunities in my books. Although, no Marvel poster of recent memory has really impressed me all that much. Except for you Ant-Man posters. I still love you.

Captain America: Civil War is set to hit theatres on May 6th.
