‘The Batman’ Set to Be Longest Theatrical Batman Movie Ever

Matt ReevesThe Batman is set to be one of the longest superhero movies ever. Not counting Zack Snyder‘s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice- Ultimate Edition and his cut of Justice League, which ran three and four hours and two minutes respectively and both came out on physical and/or digital media, The Batman will be the longest theatrical Batman movie ever.

As explained by The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will run at 175 minutes, which is five minutes shorter than Avengers: Endgame (181 minutes) and eleven minutes longer than The Dark Knight Rises (164 minutes), which was the longest Batman movie ever before that.

This could either mean that test screenings for the movie were really positive and that Warner Bros. is very confident in Matt Reeves’ vision of Batman, which seems darker and grimmer than Snyder’s movies, while also allowing time for Bruce Wayne/Batman’s work as a detective to take center stage, rather than a large-scale story we’ve all seen before.

The Batman hopefully hits theatres on March 4th.
