At a crisp 105 minutes, The Marvels has claimed the title of the shortest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It surpasses the previous record set by The Incredible Hulk and Thor: The Dark World, both clocking in at 112 minutes.

What is ‘The Marvels’ all about?

On July 21, Marvel Entertainment – the official production house of movies released under Marvel Cinematic Universe - released the official trailer of the fictional movie. The caption of the trailer described to viewers what to look forward to in the movie.

It read, “Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel has reclaimed her identity from the tyrannical Kree and taken revenge on the Supreme Intelligence. But unintended consequences see Carol shouldering the burden of a destabilized universe. When her duties send her to an anomalous wormhole linked to a Kree revolutionary, her powers become entangled with that of Jersey City super-fan, Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel, and Carol's estranged niece, now S.A.B.E.R. astronaut Captain Monica Rambeau. Together, this unlikely trio must team up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as ‘The Marvels’.”

Brie Larson, Teyonah Parris, Iman Vellani, Zawe Ashton, Gary Lewis, Park Seo-joon, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Saagar Shaikh, and Samuel L. Jackson headline the cast of Marvel Studios' film "The Marvels."

Under the direction of Nia DaCosta and production by Kevin Feige, the movie features executive producers Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Mary Livanos, Jonathan Schwartz, and Matthew Jenkins. The screenplay is crafted by Megan McDonnell, Nia DaCosta, Elissa Karasik, and Zeb Wells.
