Back in July, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi suggested that the upcoming Phase Three blockbuster would run for around 100 minutes, which would have made it the shortest Marvel movie to date.
Well, it turns out that isn’t the case after all, as the BBFC has now revealed the running time to be 130 minutes and 21 seconds. For comparison, the first Thor movie ran for 114 minutes, while 2013’s Thor: The Dark World clocked in at 112 minutes.
It will however be the shortest Marvel movie this year, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 running at 136 minutes and Spider-Man: Homecoming 133 minutes.
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, Rachel House as Topaz, Tadanobu Asano as Hogun and Sam Neill in an as-yet-unrevealed role. It is set for release on October 24th in the UK and November 3rd in the States.
