The topic “The Marvels Receives Record-Breaking Runtime” has two versions, a written version below, and a video version below the written version.
The runtime of The Marvels has revealed that the upcoming sequel starring Brie Larson has broken a significant record within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The second Captain Marvel movie will feature three popular MCU stars – Larson as the lead superhero, Teyonah Parris as Monica Rambeau, and Iman Vellani as Ms. Marvel. Alongside them, the cast includes Zawe Ashton and Park Seo-Joon, as well as Marvel veteran Samuel L. Jackson, who will be reprising his role as Nick Fury.
The Marvels represents a major crossover event within the MCU timeline, especially in recent history. This leads to the question of just how significant this movie will be.
The Marvel's Runtime Revealed

This makes it the shortest movie in the MCU’s 32-movie history, beating the previous joint record holders The Incredible Hulk and Thor: The Dark World, which both ran for 1 hour and 53 minutes. The Marvels is eight minutes shorter than these two movies.

A Short and Sweet Marvel Adventure
The runtime of The Marvels may come as a surprise to some. Despite juggling the stories of three major Marvel heroes, the film’s runtime is only 105 minutes. However, this does not mean that the movie will be any less action-packed than its longer counterparts, such as Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One (2 hours and 36 minutes) and Oppenheimer (2 hours and 49 minutes), which have already been released this year.
Despite the shorter runtime, The Marvels appears to have packed a lot into its brief adventure, with a reported budget of $274.8 million. This shorter length may have the added benefit of allowing theatres to schedule more showings of the movie, potentially helping it to recoup some of its budget at the box office.
The Marvels is scheduled for release on November 10th.
