Marvel is about to release its new blockbuster soon. After Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madnessit is it’s Thor’s turn to return to our screens on July 13. A few weeks ago, we learned from a leak that Love and Thunder would be one of the shortest MCU films. Today, we learn that it will be longer than what was rumored, but indeed, it will be one of the shortest films of the studio.
Thor facing Gorr, the Godslayer
For his new adventure, Thor will have to face a new antagonist, Gorr, the Godslayer, who will be played by Christian Bale. This one has a ferocious hatred towards the Gods after his planet was decimated. Despite her pleas for help, the deities did not intervene. Inevitably, the God of Thunder is one of his first targets. In this new part, we will find Jane Foster who will be back and will become Mighty Thor.
One of the shortest Marvel productions
A few weeks ago, a leak allowed us to know the duration of Thor 4. According to information from CBRan Australian cinema claimed that the duration of the film would be 115 minutes or 1 hour and 55 minutes. A duration that would make itone of the studio’s shortest Marvel films. However, this information had to be taken with caution, because another British cinema, Cineworld, announced that it would last 140 minutes or 2 hours and 20 minutes.
Today, as its theatrical release approaches, the British cinema chain Cineworld, as well as AMC cinemas, has revised its figure downwards. The two largest cinemas in the world finally indicate that Thor: Love and Thunder will have a duration of… 119 minutes, i.e. 1 hour and 59 minutes. It is therefore slightly longer than what the leak revealed, but Thor’s next installment will be one of the shortest MCU films.
Indeed, since Ant-Man and the Wasp released in 2018 which was 118 minutes long, Marvel didn’t produce a movie that short. As a reminder, Ant Man lasted 117 minutes, Doctor Strange 115 minutes and Thor: The Dark World as well as The Incredible Hulk both were 112 minutes long.
Although Thor: Love and Thunder be among the shortest productions of the MCU, its director, Taika Waititi, told fans that this new Thor adventure was “the craziest thing“that he had never done. This is something to reassure the public.
Thor: Love and Thunder with Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Christian Bale is expected in our theaters on July 13th.
