2 5

Warner Bro. Pictures has announced that Matt Reeves’ new The Batman movie has a runtime of 167 minutes–that’s two hours and 47 minutes–without credits. Variety was the first to report the film’s length. The movie is due to arrive on March 4.

That runtime means The Batman is also set to be one of the longest comic-book movies ever. It won’t exceed but is now in good company with Zack Snyder‘s Justice League (242 minutes) and Avengers: Endgame (181 minutes). The length, while considerable, also isn’t exactly a shock. Well in advance of its March release date, Warner Bros. already announced that last fall it was looking at two spin-off series for HBO Max. One will center on the Penguin, as portrayed by Colin Farell. Another will focus on the Gotham City Police Department. In other words, we had to know the movie’s scope and story was massive to fuel all that before hitting theaters.

Reactions to “The Batman” trailers have compared Reeves’ vision to the dark crime atmosphere of David Fincher’s films, and a 167-minute runtime would imply Reeves is taking the slow-burn detective route. “The Batman” runs longer than Fincher’s own crime opus “Zodiac” (157 minutes). The movie is also longer than recent lengthy tentpole and James Bond blockbuster “No Time to Die” (163 minutes), and it edges out the runtime of Christopher Nolan’s longest Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises” (165 minutes).
