The Batman's journey has been a bumpy ride in the DC Extended Universe since Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiered in 2016 but Warner Bros. appears to have given filmmaker Matt Reeves a lot of creative leeway in his. Batverse and its version of Batman seems ready to reinvent the caped crusader as the world's greatest detective. Expand his new universe with two spin-offs in the form of a television series for HBO Max. One dedicated to the police department from Gotham City and another to Colin Farrell's Penguin.
In an interview with Collider The Batman director Matt Reeves confirmed. That he had a fair amount of freedom from studio bosses while making the film but admits. There was one particular order he had to abide by at all costs and that was that the film had to be PG-13.
They embraced it the whole time the director said of his darker material-driven approach. There was never a moment where they said to me 'Are you sure? Let's not do it'. They really supported me through everything and I've had the support for… I have to say this movie is exactly the movie I wanted it to be and they've supported me through the whole process.
Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne / Batman
Zoë Kravitz as Selina Kyle / Catwoman
Paul Dano as Edward Nashton / Riddler
Jeffrey Wright as James Gordon
John Turturro as Carmine Falcone
Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson
Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth
Colin Farrell as Oswald "Oz" Cobblepot / Penguin
One thing they did which was my intention from the beginning was to say 'Look it's important to us that the movie is PG-13. It's a Batman movie and we're putting a lot of money into it. Reeves continued. And I was like 'Well in the ape movies I tried to find that balance too.' I felt like in the same way I knew we could push the boundaries of what you could do in a PG-13 movie and still deliver everything I wanted to do.
The director has confirmed that there is no secret R-rated version of The Batman hiding somewhere. While the film did get a PG-13 rating in the US that's not the case everywhere and in the UK it's a PG-15. meaning no one under that age can watch the film without an present.
It's definitely going to be fun to see how far the director was able to push the PG-13 The Batman. Limits with The Batman and we don't have long to wait until the movie hits theaters on Friday March 4.

No amount of money can buy a single second of time. That statement carried out by the superhero Tony 'Iron Man' Stark is undoubtedly the most fanciful thing about 'Avengers: Endgame' (2019). Saying that is saying a lot in reference to a movie that includes time travel intergalactic battles and magic stones. Because the evidence suggests that in Hollywood it is profitable to spend the dollars in appropriating the free.
Time of the spectators and that the tickets are worth more to the latter if they are used to see long films. It's worth remembering that 'Endgame' is officially the highest-grossing movie of all time and it's over three hours long.
As a consequence of this logic the fictions produced in Hollywood are increasingly becoming resistance tests for our bladders. You only have to look at some titles released in recent months to prove it. The latest movie released by Marvel 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' lasts 2 hours and 28 minutes. And the penultimate 'Eternals' in Spanish 'Eternos'- does justice to his name by lasting up to 2 hours and 43 minutes.
The most recent of the 57 feature films that agent James Bond has starred in so far 'No Time to Die' is also the longest: 2 hours and 43 minutes. 'Dune' spends 2 hours and 35 minutes adapting what is only half of the legendary book of the same name. And the duration of 'The Batman' the first installment of a new trilogy about the Bat Man that this past Friday hit theaters is only five minutes short of three hours.
The phenomenon yes by no means exclusively affects the 'blockbusters' and this is demonstrated by many of the latest films. To hit the billboard wrapped in a thick aura of prestige such as 'The Williams method' (144 minutes) ' West Side Story' (156 minutes) and 'The Gucci House' (158 minutes).
Even at a time when the audience's ability to concentrate is measured by such standards. As the 280 characters of a tweet or the few seconds of a joke in GIF format viewers appreciate length and associate. It with intellectual substance. It is true that extraordinarily long films have always existed; both 'The birth of a nation' (1915) and 'Intolerance' (1916) exceed three hours and originally 'Greed' (1924) almost reached eight.
Robert Pattinson has gained prestige and acting quality from his collaborations with filmmakers. Like David Cronenberg Claire Denis James Gray and brothers Josh and Benny Safdie. His performances in that series of auteur films have justly earned him the fame of being one of the greatest. Chameleons of his generation a nickname he promises to accentuate by heading the next project from Parasite director South Korean Bong Joon-ho.
The Batman's runtime is 2 hours and 27 minutes. That makes it the third longest superhero movie ever, behind Avengers: Endgame and Zack Snyder's Justice League.
Proof of his versatility the British man also deftly handles the machinery of the great Hollywood blockbusters. An always challenging undertaking that can burn even the most seasoned. His debut was in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) and one of his most recent films. Is Christopher Nolan's cerebral Tenet (2020). And he is well known to have achieved stardom as a vampire in all five parts of the Twilight Saga which filled movie theaters between 2008 and 2012.
In huge productions like this it can be quite easy to feel disconnected from the story. Because there are so many moving parts Pattinson says at a conference attended by Cult. Having another artist that you can really see put their all into it is a thoughtful experience that makes you want to work harder.
One of the most anticipated movies of the year The Batman is about to be released. Directed by Matt Reeves and starring Robert the film will show Bruce Wayne in his second year fighting crime. And who will hunt down the Riddler a serial killer who wreaked havoc and spread terror in Gotham City. Although there is little information so far the comments seem to be positive.
