‘Batman V Superman’ Run Time Revealed

Warner Bros.’ “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” has a lengthy run time of two hours and 31 minutes, the AMC Theaters chain has revealed.

The film, directed by Zack Snyder, is three minutes longer than Snyder’s 2013 Superman tentpole “Man of Steel” and 12 minutes shorter than his 2009 action movie “Watchmen.” By comparison, Fox’s surprise hit “Deadpool” has a much shorter run time of an hour and 46 minutes.

Warner Bros. is releasing the film worldwide on March 25 and has been touting “Batman V Superman” as a war between the DC superheroes when a new threat arises and puts mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.

Snyder directed from a script by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer. Producers are Charles Roven and Deborah Snyder.

The film also stars Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from “Man of Steel.” Jesse Eisenberg stars as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons stars as Alfred, and Holly Hunter will play a U.S. senator. Jason Momoa will appear as Aquaman.

“Batman V Superman” is the first live-action film with both Batman and Superman and the first with portrayals of Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the Flash. Warner Bros. announced the film at the 2013 Comic-Con.
