Marvel Studios recently announced that tickets for the upcoming blockbuster Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will go on sale on Wednesday, April 6, which is exactly one month before the movie’s premiere in theaters. But one thing that fans didn’t expect is that the movie’s length will be only 126 minutes. Yep, 2 hours and 6 minutes, which makes it one of the shortest MCU movies in the last few years.
Previous leaks and rumors were suggesting that we can expect one big movie, a movie that might even surpass Avengers: Endgame with its ambition. Some rumors were saying that the movie will be around 2 and a half hours long, while some were even mentioning 3 hours. But, after the ticket sale was announced, it was confirmed that the movie won’t be longer than 2 hours and 6 minutes. Take away the end credits, and how long do we get?
Of course, some fans weren’t really satisfied with the news regarding the movie’s runtime. You can check some of the tweets below:
