If you’re planning on watching The Batman when it’s released, make sure you’re sitting comfortably because you’ll be there for a while.
The upcoming movie, starring Robert Pattinson, is set to be the franchise’s longest one yet, coming in at almost three hours.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the highly-anticipated comic book film has running time of two hours and 55 minutes, including eight minutes of credits.
Insiders at Warner Bros. have since confirmed the running time to the publication, making it the longest running solo Batman film so far.
Taking the crown for the longest superhero film is Zac Snyder’s Justice League – starring Ben Affleck as Batman – which stands at a staggering four hours and two minutes.
However, this was a director’s cut that did not receive a cinematic release.
Therefore, falling just behind The Batman is Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, which has a run time of three hours and one minute.
The Batman has been long-awaited, and we were recently treated to another look at this hot DC flick with the release of ‘The Bat and The Cat’ trailer, promising a complex relationship between new, younger caped crusader Pattinson and Catwoman/Selina Kyle Zoë Kravitz.
The rest of the cast includes Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Andy Serkis and Peter Sarsgaard.
Director Matt Reeves looks to be presenting us with an edgier, goth-inspired Batman/Bruce Wayne, and Pattinson’s co-star Kravitz has already teased his ‘out of this world transformation.’
Speaking to Variety, she said: ‘Rob is perfect for this role. He was incredible. His transformation was out of this world.’
Th star has to remain tight-lipped until the film’s premiere, but, she added: ‘Matt Reeves has a lot of heart, and he cares so much for these characters. I’m just very excited for him to be able to go on vacation because he deserves it. I hope the fans love it because we put a lot of work into this.’
After filming was beset by Covid-19 woes, we’ll finally get to see for ourselves this spring.
The Batman hits cinemas on March 4.
