Wonder Woman 1984 Runtime Revealed, And It's Longer Than The First One
The superhero movie will be on HBO Max, so you can pause at any time, thankfully.
The runtime for the upcoming superhero movie sequel Wonder Woman 1984 has been revealed, and it's longer than the first one. The movie clocks in at 2 hours and 31 minutes, according to listings on cinema pages. This compares to 2 hours and 21 minutes for the 2017 film.
Director Patty Jenkins explained to Collider that her first cut of Wonder Woman 1984 was longer, coming in at 2 hours and 45 minutes before it was cut down in the editing process.
Comparing to other DC movies, Wonder Woman 1984's 151 minutes is one minute shorter than the theatrical edit of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. For further comparison, Joker (122 minutes), Suicide Squad (123 minutes), Shazam (132 minutes), and Aquaman (142 minutes) were all shorter.
Looking outside DC, Marvel's Avengers: Endgame was a behemoth of a film, running for 3 hours and 2 minutes. The supersized length was driven by the fact that it was the culmination of a numerous storylines dating back more than a decade.
Wonder Woman 1984 will be available on HBO Max in the United States on Christmas Day, so viewers will be able to pause the film to reload on snacks or use the bathroom. The movie will also play in cinemas, but whether or not you feel comfortable with that is another question.
Wonder Woman 1984 brings back Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, with new cast members joining such as Kristen Wiig (Cheetah) and Pedro Pascal (Maxwell Lord).
