The director of Thor: Ragnarok has debunked a rumour regarding the movie’s runtime.
Fans are pretty excited at the prospect of Thor: Ragnarok, with the various teasers, trailers, and images suggesting something a little bit different from the character and the Thor franchise.
One question fans have about the upcoming film is in regards to its runtime. A recent rumour has been circulated that the movie will come in at 2hrs and 10 minutes – a pretty standard time for a blockbuster movie.
But Taika Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok, has quickly put the rumour to bed.

If the film does indeed come in at 90 minutes that would be a brisk affair indeed, and see Thor: Ragnarok become the shortest film in the MCU. The Incredible Hulk currently holds the record with a 112 minutes runtime.
Does 90 minutes sound too short to you? Or have recent short feature films like Dunkirk convinced you that this won’t be a problem?
In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful threat, the ruthless Hela. But first he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk.
Thor: Ragnarok is being directed by Taika Waititi (What We Do in the Shadows) and features Marvel veterans Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Idris Elba as Heimdall and Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk alongside Cate Blanchett as Hela, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Karl Urban as Skurge, Taika Waititi as Korg, Clancy Brown as Surtur and Sam Neill and Rachel House in as-yet-unrevealed roles. It is set for release on October 27th in the UK and November 3rd in the States.
