Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' first cut was substantially longer than the final theatrical cut.
When asked if he had a longer version in mind, filmmaker Sam Raimi expounded on the projected duration of the forthcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in an interview with Collider.
"Even though we did the reshoots, it was probably around two hours and forty minutes long. Even though the reshoots were completed, we removed content.
So it gradually decreased to roughly two hours and five minutes."
Marvel Studios dispelled when the official run length was revealed to be 2 hours and 6 minutes.
