When it comes to superhero movies, 2016 has seen no shortage of long films. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was 2 hours and 31 minutes. Captain America: Civil War was 2 hours and 27 minutes.
JoBlo now has uncovered the runtime for the year’s final superhero movie, Doctor Strange, and discovered that it comes in at 1 hour, 54 minutes, and 49 seconds according to the British Board of Film Classification.
Most Marvel movies run over two hours, and while there’s nothing inherently wrong with that (Iron Man and Guardians of the Galaxy don’t feel like they’re over two hours), it’s a bit of a relief that we can still get a big superhero film that doesn’t feel like it needs an epic runtime to tell an epic story. In fact, Doctor Strange is the second-shortest Marvel film to date, running just a couple minutes ahead of Thor: The Dark World.
Doctor Strange opens November 4th and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, Benedict Wong, and Tilda Swinton.
