Current “Thor: Ragnarok” duration revealed

Directed by Taika Waititi

At San Diego Comic-Con International 2017, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi revealed to ColliderVideos the duration of his rough cut:

“The cut right now, I reckon is probably 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, and I think people are still gonna feel exhausted by the end, they’ve been on a big journey, so I don’t think the film needs to be 3 hours.”

If Thor: Ragnarok is 100 minutes, it will be the shortest Marvel Studios film. Previous Marvel Studios films run times, in descending order (according to the British Board of Film Classification):

  • Captain America: Civil War 146 minutes
  • Marvel’s The Avengers 143 minutes
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron 141 minutes
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 137 minutes
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier 136 minutes
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming 133 minutes
  • Iron Man Three 131 minutes
  • Captain America: The First Avenger 124 minutes
  • Iron Man/Guardians of the Galaxy 121 minutes
  • Iron Man 2 119 minutes
  • Ant-Man 117 minutes
  • Doctor Strange 115 minutes
  • Thor: The Dark World 112 minutes
  • The Incredible Hulk/Thor 110 minutes

Doctor Strange reshoots scripted by Dan Harmon

The Hollywood Reporter claims that Doctor Strange re-shoots from director Scott Derickson have been scripted by Dan Harmon. Harmon’s sole previous feature credit is Monster House, with unaccredited contributions to Kung Fu Panda. As such, this is Harmon’s first time writing for a superhero – the titular Doctor Stephen Strange, as portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch. Harmon created sitcom Community, which was co-directed with Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, who also co-directed Captain America: The Winter Soldier (which first acknowledged Strange’s existence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Captain America: Civil War, the most recent instalment of that continuity. The Russos are also due to direct the next two Avengers films, Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled fourth Avengers film (originally announced as Avengers: Infinity War — Part II). It is expected that Avengers: Infinity War will unite Strange with Captain America, also-known-as Steven Rogers, as well Thor Odison; while filming Thor: Ragnarok (written by Stephany Folsom), actor Chris Hemsworth was photographed reading an address – 177A, Bleecker St.; Strange’s address in the comic book source material. The Hollywood Reporter quotes an unnamed source that claims Harmon’s contributions are “for additional photography”. Doctor Strange‘s shooting script has been written by C. Robert Cargill and Derickson, from a story co-written with Jon Spaights.

Doctor Strange premieres in New Zealand on 20th October 2016. Stephen Strange first appeared in Strange Tales (1951) #110.
