MCU runtimes are always a point of contention among fans and this latest confirmation should be no exception. As Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness begins its ticket pre-selling, ticketing site Fandango has received word on the film’s official runtime: 2 hours and 6 minutes. This puts the Doctor Strange sequel behind Black Widow‘s 2 hours and 14 minutes runtime and ahead of Captain Marvel‘s 2 hours and 3 minutes.
A previous report from a Brazilian ticketing site claimed that the film was one of the longest MCU films to date, clocking in at 2 hours and 28 minutes. Between that site and Fandango, the primary ticketing site movie studios collaborate with, we’re inclined to believe the latter. Regardless, runtimes should never be an indicator of quality. Even with a story as expansive as the Multiverse, in Sam Raimi we trust. Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 is roughly as long as this movie and we all know how great that sequel turned out.
