Fans of Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder can look forward to the return of the Norse God of Thunder to the big screen this summer in Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder.
AMC Theaters has announced the runtime of Thor: Love and Thunder, just a few weeks before the film’s official theatrical release. Thor: The Dark World airs on AMC for 119 minutes, or 1 hour and 59 minutes.
It is expected to be Marvel’s shortest film in five years. The film follows 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was the shortest of Marvel’s offerings at 118 minutes.
Marvel is known for making films that last longer than two hours, but this is the third film in the last six years to do so. Thor films are known for being direct and to-the-point, so the credo fits right in.
The longest time viewers have ever seen the lightning-wielding hero on screen is 130 minutes, which is longer than either Thor or Thor: The Dark World.
Chris Hemsworth, Christian Bale, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman return in their respective roles as Gorr the God Butcher, King Valkryie, and Jane Foster.
Thor: The Dark World was released in theaters on July 8, 2018. Knives Out 2’s official release date and title have recently been teased.
Is There An End Date For Thor: Love And Thunder?
Thor: Love and Thunder have a running time of 1 hour and 59 minutes, according to AMC and Cineworld. The most recent listing falls somewhere in the middle of a previously recorded run time range of 1 hour, 55 minutes to 2 hours, 20 minutes.
Because ticket sales begin on Monday, June 13, the most recent estimate of the film’s length is most likely correct.
With a 119-minute runtime, Thor 4 is the shortest MCU theatrical release and the seventh-shortest Marvel Studios film ever, following Ant-Man and the Wasp (1 hour, 58 minutes) in 2018.
Is Thor 4’s Running Time Too Long?
In today’s world, many people are quick to criticize a film or Disney+ episode before even seeing it. The ability to maintain a consistent pace is critical in cinematic storytelling; too fast and everything feels rushed, while too slow and things tend to drag.
Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok, revealed to Collider just four months before the 2017 release that his current cut of the film was only 1 hour, 40 minutes long; the finished film ended up being 2 hours, 10 minutes long.
Despite the fact that Love and Thunder is a sequel, Waititi has previously stated that “stories are better when they leave the audience wanting more.”
