Marvel fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of The Marvels. Now there is an intriguing update regarding its runtime.
It’s quite unusual for a big studio blockbuster, especially a superhero film, to have a runtime of less than 2 hours. However, the rumored runtime of The Marvels is indeed less than 2 hours, which would make it the shortest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
As per several internet insiders, the sequel to Captain Marvel reportedly has a duration of approximately 1 hour and 38 minutes (1 hour and 33 minutes without including credits).
It’s worth noting that the film’s official runtime has not been confirmed yet. This reported runtime is not final and could undergo changes before the film’s release.
The Marvels Set To Be MCU’s Shortest Film?
Starring Brie Larson, Iman Vellani, and Teyonah Parris, the movie will be among the few Marvel films with a runtime of under two hours.
At present, the shortest films within Marvel Studios’ lineup are The Incredible Hulk and Thor: The Dark World, both with a runtime of 1 hour and 52 minutes.
Consequently, if the reported runtime holds true, The Marvels will be the shortest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Reportedly, The Marvels is set to be a standalone project with minimal connections to the broader MCU. Given that the three heroes have already been introduced in other films and shows, a shorter runtime than usual would be logical.
The Marvels’ Plot: What’s It About?
The Marvels takes place after the events of Ms. Marvel and Secret Invasion. Captain Marvel (Larson) regains her identity from the Kree and seeks revenge on the Supreme Intelligence.
However, her actions lead to unintended consequences, and she’s tasked with stabilizing the universe.
As she explores a strange wormhole tied to a Kree rebel, her powers intertwine with those of Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a devoted Ms. Marvel fan from Jersey City, and her estranged niece, astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris) of S.A.B.E.R.
This unlikely trio must join forces to save the universe, working together as The Marvels.
The film also marks the return of Samuel L. Jackson, Saagar Shaikh, Zenobia Shroff, and Mohan Kapur within the franchise.
Joining the cast are newcomers Zawe Ashton and Park Seo-joon.
Several reports were making rounds that The Marvels might be delayed due to the ongoing Hollywood strikes.
However, as of now, the film is sticking with its scheduled release date of November 10. The Marvels arrives in theaters on 10 November 2023.
