‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Director Taika Waititi Debunks Runtime Rumors

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi just took to Twitter to debunk claims that the movie is two hours long. If anything, it’s a bit shorter than we last checked, at least when not counting credits.

A recent rumor making the rounds has claimed that Thor: Ragnarok is going to clock in at 2 hours and 10 minutes, but the movie’s director quickly debunked that claim:

By the way that Waititi is joking, it seems like the running time for the movie part of the movie will be 90 minutes, and that does not include the credits or post-credits scenes. So if that remains true for the final cut, then the movie ought to be around 100 minutes in length as initially reported. Although it remains to be seen if he’s kidding about the implication that he’ll be taking a page from James Gunn and stuffing his movie’s credits with extra scenes.

Thor: Ragnarok collides on November 3, 2017 with a cast that includes Chris Hemsworth as Thor Odinson, Mark Ruffalo as Doctor Bruce Banner (The Hulk), Tesssa Thompson as Valkyrie, Sir Anthony Hopkins as Odin Borson, Idris Elba as Heimdall, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Stephen Strange, Karl Urban as Skurge, Jeff Goldblum as En Dwi Gast (The Grandmaster), Tom Hiddleston as Loki Laufeyson, Cate Blanchett as Hela, and Clancy Brown as Sutur.
