Thor: Love and Thunder it represents the first time that one of the original Avengers has had a fourth film. Chris Hemsworth has brought Thor to life for several years, but many considered that until Thor: Ragnarok – 92% had not used the character so well, so they appreciate a new opportunity to continue their development away from the main team. Taika Waititi surprised many by the way he used his particular comedy in this universe, but in general it was appreciated that he put the God of Thunder with his powers to the maximum and representing a rarely seen aspect of superheroes that has to do with the feeling of failure and depression for not fulfilling what they consider to be their most important obligations.
In this sequel we will see more about the emotional changes that Thor goes through, but we will also have the return of Jane (Natalie Portman), who becomes the new bearer of Mjölnir; as well as the political disappointment that Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) feels as the new leader of her town. The main villain will be Gorr the Butcher God, played by Christian Bale, who will seek to eradicate the presence of any kind of god in the universe. Although we haven’t seen the actor in the role yet, the director promises that he will be the best villain in the MCU so far.
Since last year it was clear that Marvel was prioritizing the multiverses, and so far we have followed this trend very well. Nevertheless, Thor: Love and Thunder will be digressing a bit from this to take us into an under-explored aspect of Thor’s mythology. Although in that sense it may seem out of place, there are still many details about the story that we do not know, so his contribution to the new phase of the franchise is not yet clear, but it has been said that his position will be paramount.

The UCM has done everything possible to keep the surprises and that is why it took a long time to release the first trailer and there is still a long way to go to see spots of the tape. This only causes more excitement among fans, who, as always, are already working out theories about the twists and turns of the screw and the future of Thor and Jane in the Marvel universe. The problem is that the company is making some changes that make this phase and these deliveries a transition stage and that has not pleased everyone. Now a new rumor about the length of Thor: Love and Thunder It will cause a lot of controversy and annoyance among the fans.
According to CBR.comthe page of Event Cinemas, the most important cinema chain in Australia, has the information about the film and it shows a duration of 115 minutes; that is, 1 hour and 55 minutes. This would make it one of the shortest in the MCU, behind Hulk: The Incredible Man – 67% and Thor: A Dark World – 66%, two tapes that are considered the worst of the company. For comparison, this time would put it on a par with Doctor Strange: Sorcerer Supreme – 89% and Thor – 77%, which is strange for a sequel because those were the first appearances of these heroes and they served as introduction stories.
The rumor has not been confirmed, and since the film is still in post-production, it is possible that although this duration is real, it will change before its release in July. Something similar happened with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessWell, first it was said that it would last more than two and a half hours, and in the end it exceeded the traditional two hours by a few minutes. sam raimi confirmed that more than 40 minutes had been left out and many fans complained that expectations were not met in part because of this. After all, Marvel titles have already gotten audiences used to longer installments. In a few weeks we will know the true duration of Thor: Love and Thunder and already then the followers will be able to put the cry in the sky.
