The Batman has finally found its way to movie theaters, but how long is the much-anticipated DC movie?
The Dark Knight Returns. To the big screen, that is.
After much anticipation (and some delays along the way), The Batman has finally found its way to movie theaters. Directed by Matt Reeves, it stars Robert Pattinson as the broody Caped Crusader just two years into his crime-fighting career as he hopes to put a stop to the terrifying Riddler. Paul Dano plays the villain, as the two are joined in their tug of war for Gotham’s soul by Zoë Kravitz’s Catwoman, Jeffrey Wright’s Lieutenant James Gordon, and Colin Farrell’s Penguin.
There is a lot of excitement about the DC film, which stands apart from the already-established DCEU, with fans hoping that it will revive the Batman franchise after a decade without a solo vehicle for the character (the last being Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises).
Before you go to the movie theater to see it, you might want to know how long the flick is.
How long is the new movie The Batman?
The Batman has a runtime of 2 hours and 56 minutes. The near-three-hour film was the subject of a lot of rumors in regards to its actual length until The Hollywood Reporter confirmed it back in January.
That makes it the longest solo Batman movie to date, and one of the longest comic book movies of all time. As for which title holds that record, it’s a movie that actually features the Caped Crusader: Zack Snyder’s Justice League (which has a four hour runtime).
The Batman hits theaters on March 4.
