While AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Might Be The Longest MCU Movie To Date, THOR: RAGNAROK Aims To Be The Shortest

Just yesterday we learned that Avengers: Infinity War will likely be the longest MCU movie released so far and now, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi reveals that his film will be the shortest.

The first Thor film in 2011 had a runtime of 114 minutes.  Thor: The Dark World was released two years later and had a runtime of 112 minutes.  However, this November's Thor: Ragnarok currently has a runtime of only 100 minutes.  That would make it the shortest MCU film to date, 12 minutes shorter than The Incredible Hulk.

The news comes just a day after we reported that Avengers: Infinity War would likely have a runtime that exceeds 150 minutes.

Speaking to Collider, Taika Waititi revealed, "
The cut right now, I reckon it’s about 100 minutes. It’s not gonna be a very, very long film. I think that stories are better when you leave them wanting more, and this film moves at a clip, it’s got stuff happening all the time. I think people are still gonna feel exhausted by the end, they’ve been on this big journey and stuff, so I don’t think we need the film to be three hours."

With elements of Planet Hulk to tackle, Hela's siege of Asgard and a brief trip to Earth to find Odin and meet Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange, do you think 100 minutes is enough time to adequately give each storyline enough breathing room? Let us know in the comment section below.

Thor: Ragnarok will be released in theaters on November 3, 2017.
