Doctor Strange 2 Could Be One Of The MCU's Longest Movies Yet
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is anticipated as having a seriously long runtime.
Prepare to grab yourself a litre of Coke, a large popcorn and maybe even some nachos to get you through Doctor Strange 2, because the film could be one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's (MCU) longest yet.
In listing the film on its website, a distribution company has seemingly revealed the film's impressive length.
According to a listing by Brazilian global distribution platform Ingresso, Doctor Strange is set to run for a total of 148 minutes (two hours and 28 minutes).
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would subsequently join Eternals, Avengers: Endgame, and Avengers: Infinity War as the only MCU films to run for 148 minutes or longer, Comicbook reports.
If totalling 148 minutes, then Doctor Strange 2 will match the runtime of Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Doctor Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch has even predicted that the success of the upcoming release could even mirror that of the latest Spider-Man.
The upcoming release's anticipated runtime mirrors the lengthy nature of its filming process, which saw a series of delays as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Cumberbatch told Deadline: "It's been tough. I'll be honest with you. It's had quite a journey, this film. But not in a kind of poor me way, just like the nature of where we're at.
"To try and make a massive film like that under the constrictions of a pandemic and the delays that have ensued, partly because of The Power of the Dog, but also because of everything that was lined up and had to be pushed back from Marvel. It's been tough for everyone. Also, incredibly enjoyable and no less enjoyable than the first one."
Reshoots were also required because of elements that were unable to be filmed during the pandemic.
Cumberbatch told Empire: "[Some parts] were just impossible to do on the day because of logistics, COVID. We were so delayed in production because of that. Luckily, not during production too much. Although everything is just a little slower."
If the time listed is correct, then prepare to come out of the cinema in even more of a daze – when you realise that it's no longer light outside – than Dr Strange as he tries to navigate his way through the Multiverse.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to hit cinemas on 6 May.
