‘The Batman’ will be DC’s longest film

Matt Reeves’ Batman will have a runtime nearing three hours long – two hours and 55 minutes to be exact. According to the American entertainment website IGN, the duration will make it the longest Batman film of all time, and one of the longest superhero movies to date.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed the runtime and that the total length includes a relatively average eight minutes of credits. However, the superhero film that still leads the pack is Avengers: Endgame, with a duration of three hours and one minute, as well as Zack Snyder’s four-hour cut of Justice League, though that never debuted in theatres.

Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy comes close, with The Dark Knight Rises clocking in at two hours and 44 minutes, and The Dark Knight at two hours and 32 minutes. The Tim Burton era comes in at a much more modest two hours and six minutes for both Batman and Batman Returns.

Chalk it up to the trend of bigger, longer tentpole films, especially in the realm of superhero movies. The vast majority of the MCU slate clocks in at over two hours long (with exceptions like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange coming in just under that), and DC’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice clocking in at two hours and 31 minutes.

The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson as the masked vigilante, is out in theatres on March 4. Paul Dano plays the mysterious Riddler, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
