Taika Waititi debunks Thor: Ragnarok runtime rumour

24 August 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The director of Thor: Ragnarok has debunked a rumour regarding the movie’s runtime.

Fans are pretty excited at the prospect of Thor: Ragnarok, with the various teasers, trailers, and images suggesting something a little bit different from the character and the Thor franchise.

One question fans have about the upcoming film is in regards to its runtime. A recent rumour has been circulated that the movie will come in at 2hrs and 10 minutes – a pretty standard time for a blockbuster movie.

But Taika Waititi, director of Thor: Ragnarok, has quickly put the rumour to bed.

Rumor: The run-time for #ThorRagnarok is reportedly 2 hours and 10 minutes long!

Thor: Ragnarok’s “he’s a friend from work” line came from a Make-a-Wish kid

3 August 2017 1:48 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks ago, director Taika Waititi suggested that up to a whopping 80% of Thor: Ragnarok is improvisation, and now Chris Hemsworth has revealed that one of – if not the – most memorable moments from the first trailer falls into that category, and it seems we have a child from the Make-a-Wish Foundation to thank.

“We had a young kid, a Make-a-Wish kid on set that day,” revealed Hemsworth, discussing the scene where The Incredible Hulk makes his grand entrance into the arena to square off against the God of Thunder. “He goes, ‘You know, you should say, “He’s a friend from work!”‘”

Hopefully the witty youngster is getting some good commission from all those T-shirts…

In Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok,” Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard »
