‘The Batman’ Runtime Confirmed, And It’s The Longest Batman Movie Yet
The BatmanThe long runtime of has been confirmed, and it looks like you’ll either have to take a massive leak right before the movie starts, or be prepared to hold it for the entire duration.
According to a recently unearthed listing for the upcoming DC movie on the IMAX Melbourne website, The Batman boasts a whopping 176 minutes of runtime. That’s 2 hours and 56 minutes, in other words, which means we can expect nearly three hours of Batman ruminating, punching people, and occasionally flirting with Catwoman. I’ll let you decide if it’s good or not.
Take a look at The Batman in action below!
It certainly lines up with what we had already heard about the film. Suggested early screenings The Batman is a three-hour noir thriller, in which Robert Pattinson’s Batman desperately tries to follow a series of gruesome clues in pursuit of a serial killer known only as Riddler (Paul Dano).
176 minutes done The Batman the longest Batman movie by far, by the way. In comparison, The black Knight was 152 minutes, which means The Batman is nearly 30 minutes longer. What does he intend to do with this extra half hour? I have no idea, but I can’t wait to find out.
But at the same time The Batman is certainly among the longest superhero movies, it is not enough take first place. Avengers Endgame just about beats the caped crusader with a whopping 182 minutes of runtime. Does anyone else remember when superhero movies were happy in under two hours? I do. It was a simpler time.
The Batman hits theaters March 4. You have until then to bolster your bladders, or just order adult diapers if that’s easier. There is absolutely no shame in that.
