It’s been revealed that the movie will be just over two hours.
This put to bed those rumours that Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness would be over two and a half hours long.
The official runtime came through as tickets for the follow-up went on sale, quickly breaking online sales records (via ComicBook.com).
Doctor Strange 2 is already Fandango’s best-selling movie of the year, outselling The Batman.
“The epic first day of presales for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness proves fans are beyond excited to experience all the thrills, chills and blockbuster surprises Marvel Studios is known to deliver,” said Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis in a statement.
Doctor Strange 2’s runtime will be just over 2 hours
As far as the movie’s box office is concerned, it looks like Doctor Strange 2 could make a lot of money.
Experts are predicting that the movie will open with between $165 and $205 million in the United States alone!
That’s a huge number for Doctor Strange 2 and it’s also bringing back Sam Raimi into the comic book movie making fold.
Raimi was asked which was the better sorcerer: Doctor Strange or Scarlet Witch:
“Wow. That’s a question I’ve been asking kids on the playground since third grade. Who is stronger, this character or that character? Well, I think Wanda’s magic, from Marvel lore, is more powerful than almost any of the other characters in this picture, but Doctor Strange has the knowledge of the mystic arts that Wanda doesn’t have, and he’s got the help of Kamar-Taj,” Raimi previously told Fandango.
If you were to pit them against each other, different altered versions of themselves … there could be Doctor Strange out there that’s more powerful than our Wanda. Or there could be a Wanda out there who is more powerful than our Wanda here. So, because of these altered versions, it’s all a mixed bag of possibilities.
