In the end, Caped Crusader fans might be about to watch three consecutive hours of action in search of revenge. A new listing on the IMAX Melbourne website suggests Matt Reeves’ current runtime The Batman is 176 minutes, which means fans will get two hours and 56 minutes of Robert Pattinson’s take on Bruce Wayne on the most popular mythos in all of comic book history.
Not only is the reported runtime one of the longest comic book movies ever released, but it would also definitely be the longest Batman movie ever released. As it stands, Tthe dark knight rises is currently the longest Batman film at two hours and 45 minutes. by Christophe Nolan The black Knight comes in at two hours and 32 minutes while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice carries a similar runtime.
The long runtime makes sense, after all, as Reeves himself said, the movie is the greatest detective story in the world.
“I wanted to do a story where the corruption of Gotham was one of the most important aspects of the story, because Gotham is a sick place. Bruce is desperate to try to make a change,” Reeves said in a recent interview with Filmmaker magazine.
He added: “To be honest, he’s still stuck, emotionally stunted at the age of 10, because it’s a trauma that you can’t get over – seeing your parents murdered in this place. He’s looking for to create meaning, right? That’s the only meaning he can find. … I think he imagines that if he can do that, somehow, he can reverse what’s It’s past, which will never be reversed. It’s a very human impulse, isn’t it? Trying to relive something and do it again.
Reeves went on to say that Batman is always at the center of all good Gotham stories, sniffing out corruption wherever it may lead.
“The idea of a corrupt place, and you trying to swim against it to fight it and make a difference, is quintessential Batman,” Reeves said. “And at the center of these dark stories is almost always the detective, isn’t it? And that’s why he’s the world’s greatest detective. And so, this story is, in addition to being almost a horror movie, a thriller and an action movie, at its core, it’s also a detective story. It’s very narrative. »
The Batman is currently scheduled to be released on March 4.
