There is a rumor that The Marvels may set a new record for the shortest runtime of any Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie. According to the rumor, the film will be 1 hour and 38 minutes long, or 93 minutes without credits. This would make it the shortest MCU movie since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk, which was 1 hour and 52 minutes long.
The rumor comes from leaker Cryptic HD Quality, who has a good track record of revealing accurate runtime information for Disney-developed movies and shows. However, it is important to note that this is still just a rumor and nothing has been confirmed by Marvel Studios.
If the rumor is true, it would be interesting to see why Marvel Studios decided to make The Marvels shorter than most of their other movies. It could be that they are trying to keep the film more focused and tonally consistent, or that they are simply trying to save money on production costs. Whatever the reason, it will be interesting to see how The Marvels’ shorter runtime affects its overall quality.
Here are some other things to consider about the rumor:
- The Marvels is a sequel to Captain Marvel, which was 2 hours and 03 minutes long. So, it is possible that Marvel Studios is simply trying to make the sequel shorter and more streamlined.
- The Marvels is also set to introduce a number of new characters, including Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel and Monica Rambeau. So, it is possible that Marvel Studios is trying to make sure that all of these characters have enough screen time, even if it means making the movie shorter overall.
- Finally, it is also worth noting that the average runtime of MCU movies has been increasing over the years. The first MCU movie, Iron Man, was only 2 hours long. But the most recent MCU movie, Thor: Love and Thunder, was 2 hours and 18 minutes long. So, it is possible that Marvel Studios is simply trying to buck this trend and make a shorter movie.
Ultimately, whether or not the rumor is true, it will be interesting to see how The Marvels’ runtime affects its overall quality. The film is scheduled to be released on February 17, 2023.
