Thor Love And Thunder: MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) will take folks on a ride on this madness-filled Marvel movie. The movie appears to be lengthier than previously reported.
The next Marvel Cinematic Universe movie has a duration of one hour and 59 minutes, according to the film's entry on AMC's website. While a previous source suggested that the film was just one hour and 55 minutes long, AMC's page is consistent with remarks made by star Chris Hemsworth, who stated that audiences will get "a full two hours of this wonderful chaos."
Despite having a lengthier duration than fans anticipated, Thor: Love and Thunder will be one of the shortest MCU films to date. The next project from Marvel Studios is just slightly longer than Ant-Man and The Wasp, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Thor, Thor: The Dark World, and The Incredible Hulk. Given that ticket pre-orders for Love and Thunder begin on June 13, the mentioned length is most likely faithful to the film's final theatrical cut.
Thor: Love and Thunder see Hemsworth reprise his role as the titular god of thunder but in a somewhat different capacity. According to the trailers, Odinson has become disillusioned with his life as a superhero and starts on a journey of self-discovery. He'll be joined on his journey by a revolving cast of famous faces, including King Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), Korg (Taika Waititi), Jane Foster as The Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman), and many Guardians of the Galaxy.
While several of these characters will be assisting Thor, one addition to the MCU has much more lethal plans for the god of thunder. Gorr the Deity Butcher (Christian Bale) will be the major adversary in Love and Thunder, attempting to slaughter every known god in the world with a formidable weapon known as All-Black the Necrosword. While many fans linked Gorr's look to Harry Potter villain Voldemort, Hemsworth assured fans that Bale's portrayal is scary.
"The rest of us were in our world of creativity, humor, and fun – then he'd arrive on set, and we'd all look at each other and say, 'Oh, my God! This is rather intense. This is terrifying.'" Hemsworth elaborated. Waititi went on to say that Gorr defies the MCU by revealing his evil intent. "Gorr's past involves being mistreated by the gods, and a lot of his motivation is retaliation for these wrongdoings... we wanted to explore this concept of religion, believing, and what it means to place your faith in a higher force."
