Longer films are generally frowned upon, but only if they fail to hold the audience’s attention. There are many movies longer than 3 hours that have been both critical and commercial hits. The first two Lord of the Rings films clocked in at around three hours, while The Return of the King surpassed the 200-minute mark. Martin Scorsese’s 2019 crime epic The Irishman, which ran for 209 minutes, was even longer.

The Batman, written by Reeves and Peter Craig, follows a rookie Caped Crusader who is still learning to control his rage. He wants to improve Gotham City, but is pursued by villains such as the Riddler and the Penguin. According to the trailers and posters, he will team up with Catwoman, and the two may even have a romantic relationship.

The film takes a darker tone when it comes to the Batman mythos. As a result, a clownish, flamboyant villain like the Riddler transforms into a serial killer influenced by the Zodiac Killer.

Reeves also wanted The Batman to focus on the superhero’s detective abilities. He isn’t known as the world’s greatest detective for nothing, and most live-action adaptations haven’t really delved into that beyond a few nods.

Commissioner Gordon, Alfred, Penguin, Riddler, and Carmine Falcone are played by Jeffrey Wright, Andy Serkis, Colin Farrell, Paul Dano, and John Turturro, respectively, in The Batman.

“I have been watching the Batman films with my kids, but this script is something that feels incredibly original,” Farrell said in an interview with the UK’s SFX magazine last year. It leans in, but it doesn’t borrow; it’s a product of Bruce Wayne’s, Batman’s, and Gotham’s mythology. It appears to be a treatment and a version I’ve never seen before. Matt Reeves has done an outstanding job of keeping it both familiar and unique and new. It’s a great honour to be a part of it.”

According to Serkis, the film is a darker and more brooding adaptation than previous Batman films. On March 4, 2022, The Batman is set to be released.
