The New Batman Movie Will Be 3 Hours Long

Forget wondering just how many Batman movies we need (there have already been, like, 80,000 of them), now the question is, how long does the new Batman movie need to be? Nearly three hours, thanks to director Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. Via Deadline:

Matt Reeves’ upcoming film The Batman, starring Robert Pattinson, will be the longest Dark Knight pic in history at a runtime of two hours and 55 minutes, Deadline has confirmed. The news first surfaced as the film received its PG-13 rating from the MPAA.

Set for release in the U.S. on March 4, The Batman is also one of the longest superhero films in history, boasting eight minutes’ worth of credits alone. It follows Avengers: Endgame, which came in at three hours and one minute, as the longest to hit theaters. And while Zack Snyder’s Justice League went straight to HBO Max last March, it’s the longest overall, at a runtime of four hours and two minutes.

I like Pattinson (ICYMI, he was in an excellent movie called Good Time a few years ago), so I’m not totally against the new Batman. And Matt Reeves directed Cloverfield and Let Me In (both great), so this could actually be good, even if we’ve seen the same story a million times before. Trailer:
