"Deadpool" may run 106 minutes.

The official runtime for 20th Century Fox's "Deadpool" could have been revealed over at the studio's Spanish website for the film.

According to the site, "Deadpool" is set to be 106 minutes -- or 1 hour and 46 minutes -- in length.

If this is accurate, that would mean "Deadpool" has a fairly shorter runtime, when compared to other comic book movie fare, like all of the Marvel Studios films, and other Fox X-Men movies, such as "The Wolverine" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

Still, "Deadpool's" potential 106-minute runtime is slightly longer than a handful of other comic book movies, like 2015's "Fantastic Four" and 2008's "Punisher: War Zone," which come in at 100 minutes and 103 minutes, respectively.

Directed by Tim Miller and starring Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, T.J. Miller, Ed Skrein, Brianna Hildebrand and Stefan Kapicic, "Deadpool" hits screens on February 12.
