On March 4, “The Batman” by Matt Reeves will be shown in theaters, and DC comics fans will enjoy about three hours of showtime in Gotham City and revel in Robert Pattinson’s iteration of the Dark Knight.
Roughly two hours and 47 minutes is the official duration of the film, end credits not included, confirmed a source. With 167 minutes of runtime without credits, “The Batman” is among the longest comic book movies ever. Although, it is only behind the 181-minute long “Avengers: Endgame” and 242-minute long “Zack Snyder’s Justice League.”
Robert Pattinson is the latest addition to the actors who played the character of Bruce Wayne in the new “The Batman,” preceding Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, and many others.
Pattinson stars the film along with Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle/Catwoman, Paul Dano as Edward Nashton/Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth and Colin Farrell as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin.
The film is directed by Matt Reeves, and produced by Dylan Clarck and Reeves, with Simon Emanuel, Walter Hamada, Micheal E. Uslan, and Chantal Nong Vo as executive producers along with Toby Hefferman as associate producer.
Feedback to the trailers of “The Batman” likened Reeves’ perception to the gloomy crime aura of the films of David Fincher. A 167-minute duration would indicate that Reeves is taking the unhurried detective route.
“The Batman” runs more extensively than Fincher’s masterpiece “Zodiac,” which lasts only for 157 minutes. The movie is longer than the long-drawn “No Time To Die” (163 minutes), which is a James Bond blockbuster. Also edges out the durations of the longest Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises” (165 minutes), which is by Christopher Nolan.
The movie maker wrote the script along with Peter Craig. “The Batman” also denotes Reeves’ first movie after “War for the Planet of the Apes” in 2017.
