Scott Derrickson Denies Doctor Strange Runtime Reports

We recently reported on the runtime for Marvel's upcoming film Doctor Strange. According to Event Cinemas, an Australian theater chain, the run time is 130 minutes, or 2 hours and 10 minutes long, which is fairly standard for a Marvel solo outing.

However, director Scott Derrickson denied the recent reports by taking to Twitter to clear things up. You can read his vague response to Peter Sciretta's original tweet below:

Reading through the rest of the thread, Derrickson doesn't offer up the correct runtime after saying the initial report is false. So, we just know that the film is not 130 minutes long.

Who knows where Event Cinemas got that number from, but they probably aren't that far off from the actual runtime, unless Doctor Strange plans on wowing us in 90 minutes. Actually the world-bending trailers have already blown our minds in less than a few minutes...

In a recent interview, Scott Derrickson told ComicBook:

"What the comics did was, they brought with Doctor Strange an extra dimension into psychadelia, mysticism, and spirituality and all these very 60's things and broke open the Marvel comic book universe into the Marvel multiverse"


Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Doctor Strange hits theaters November 4, 2016.
