Robert Pattinson’s ‘The Batman’ Runtime Reveals It’s The Longest Dark Knight Movie



Batman fans, prepare to eat good! The Batman‘s runtime has been revealed and it’s nearly 3 hours long. Starring Robert Pattinson who takes on a younger, edgier Bruce Wayne in the grittiest Batman film so far, the Matt Reeves directorial is one of the biggest movie events of the year. The solo film is a unique addition to the DC movie verse apart from the DCEU coming to theatres this March.

As per reports on The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has confirmed that the runtime of The Batman is 2 hours and 55 minutes with the end credits. That makes it the longest solo Dark Knight movie of all time and the longest DC movie. The film will see Pattinson’s caped crusader take on quite a few Gotham City baddies – an unrecognisable Colin Farrell’s Penguin and Paul Dano’s sinister Riddler while Zoe Kravitz’s Selina Kyle aka Catwoman will be an unexpected ally as teased by the trailers. The film also casts Andy Serkis as Alfred and Jeffrey Wright as commissioner Jim Gordon.

The Batman‘s runtime is good news considering just how much the film is about to unpack. For starters, it is perhaps the wildest Dark Knight movie of all time with a PG-13 rating, likely for its dark plot and violent scenes. Along with setting up an origin story for young Bruce, the film will also delve deeper into the stories of villains than ever before.

Judging from the teasers, the Riddler has an unexpected connection to the Waynes. Matt Reeves recently revealed that the character is inspired by the Zodiac Killer as per MovieMaker. The Penguin is also a character to watch out for as Warner Bros. has already announced a spin-off starring Farrell. The film will also flesh out the bond between “The Bat and the Cat” (it does have a nice ring to it) and Pattinson and Kravitz’s chemistry is certainly something to watch out for. Considering that the film is not a part of the DCEU, it has its own world-building to do. All in all, the runtime is more than justified. Besides we could watch Robert Pattinson play emo Batman all day.

The Batman will release in theatres on March 4, 2022.
