The fourth film dedicated to the adventures of Thor has already been revealed as one of the shortest films in MCU history with a duration of 1h59. And yet, its director, Taika Waititi, revealed that his feature film could have a long, very long version.

Better shorter than too long
During an interview for the Collider site, New Zealand director Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth, aka Thor himself, confirmed the existence of a version of the film Thor: Love and Thunder, 4 hours long ! Version discontinued for theatrical release due to his numerous jokes of varying quality which would have slowed the progress of the plot, according to them. The interpreter of the god of Thunder compared this very long version to a Monty Python sketch.
Taika Waititi seems very satisfied with the final version which should be released in theaters soon, which leads us to believe that he has managed to find the right balance between humor and the main plot and that only the best jokes have been kept. The results of the first screenings of Thor: Love and Thunder have also been revealed largely positive. As for the 4h version, it could appear in the Blu-ray editions of the film, in part or in full.
Humor, but also emotion
The critics present during the first screenings of the film raised another aspect of Love and Thunder: its emotional side. If we base ourselves on the comicsthe MCU feature film indeed promises some serious and tragic story arcslike those of Gorrdisillusioned after the loss of his family, or Jane Foster, aka Mighty Thor, who despite gaining divine powers, is afflicted with cancer. Thor: Love and Thunder also has high chance of being Chris Hemsworth’s last appearance in the costume of the Asgardian god.
The fourth film in the Adventures of Thor will see the God of Thunder in deep introspection, traveling the cosmos alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy to find a new purpose after defeating Thanos. When Gorr the Godslayer swears the extermination of all gods, Thor must gather allies to face him. He will be able to count on his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster who has become Mighty Thor (Natalie Portman), the new queen of the Asgardians Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) and the entire Guardians of the Galaxy team led by Star-Lord (Chris Pratt).
Thor: Love and Thunder is out in French theaters Wednesday, July 13, 2022.
