Eh, hopefully it is not all dark and gloom and edge and the like.
Otherwise it would be as fun as watching Man of Steel or any other Snyder DC movie.
Which means it won't be fun at all.

That's awesome. I want to be go deep into a new version of Gotham and see all the corners.

This is something to be celebrated, in general. Not because longer automatically leads to better, but because it's a sign of the creative freedom WB is giving this project.
A few years ago, we had the higher ups forcing a two hour cut and rushing their film to get a bonus.

I love the tone set by the choir. Brings me back to the Burton/BTAS era of Batman.

Movie also looks gorgeous, courtesy of the Dune cinematographer guy. Can't wait to drink it all in.

I'm mostly worried about the third act, which is my biggest fear with most comic blockbusters.

Well, this is why the production has taken forever. Reeves has been dicking around and shooting a 4 hour movie:

A little curious to see how the conflicts between the Director and the star impact the movie - if noticeable at all. But I'm sure Batman's pale skin and rosy red lil cheeks will make millenials swoon, so at least there's that.

I miss times, when good movies were relatively short and 3 hour epics.

I guess, brevity is a lost art in a Hollywood, like many others?

I just watched Good Time again.

Who knew Pattinson was such a great actor. Guy deserves the Batman role.

Also, the directors of Good Time kick ass. They also did a movie with Adam Sandler called Uncut Gems. They’re very good at creating a sense of tension that doesn’t let up the entire time. Pretty impressive.

Good interview with director:

More confirmation that Affleck was never his Batman plus more on the influences of the film. A Nirvana-inspired Batman film? Never knew I needed that, but I do.

Depends on the project. Venom 2 just released at a brisk 90 minutes, but it wasn’t a great film.

Personally, as long as the story is paced well, and utilizes it’s runtime effectively, the runtime doesn’t matter much to me. In fact, as long as it’s executed well, then I say the more the merrier. Not to say I want to see something stretched out with filler.

I can see how a long runtime would hinder others though. Sometimes you’re just not invested enough to want to commit to that. That’s probably why I never watch the hot new streaming show. When there’s like 5 seasons, it’s too daunting.

I already like the riddler's new design, grew on me quick. Catwoman also looks great. Black gordon still sticks out in a bad way. I don't think I'll be watching this in theaters, I'll watch it at home eventually, not in the batman mood.

I want to eat that horrible looking batman pizza tho

Pizza is pizza, I'd go for any, if I could, no matter how badly it is shaped.

I love how instead of cutting the ears into it they just sort of fold the crust down into corners

Do I smell product placement? Naw, not in a Batman movie. Maybe that crossover with the turtles rubbed off on WB.

I don't consider Little Caesar's pizza "good" but that's just my personal tastes.

I mean it's alright as far as "I'm hungry at the mall and only have five bucks" pizza.

I live on another end of the world, so can't say I can taste it anyway.
But as long as isn't made in the basement with a stinky fat, its good for me.

Suit almost has a hint of blue to it. I love the addition of the collar - why shouldn't Batman slightly resemble Dracula?

Helmet / cowl looks kind of strange.
And collar attached to cape looks uncomfortable.

I thought that the more I'd look at it and see it, the more I'd get used to the giant collar look.

Nope. Still looks sh** to me.
