As Warner Bros. and DC Film’s Aquaman is inching closer to its December released date, more and more information about the upcoming film has started pouring in. if a new social media post is to be believed, Aquaman’s runtime will span to 140 minutes (2 hours and 20 minutes).
Although the film studio has not yet confirmed Aquaman’s runtime, 140 minutes is currently the standard runtime for both DC and Marvel movies. Some previously released DC Extended Universe movies also shared the same runtime, for instance, Man of Steel- 2h 23min, Batman v Superman- 2h 31min, Suicide Squad- 2h 3min, Wonder Woman- 2h 21min and Justice League- 2h.
Aquaman’s success is very crucial for the studio considering the fact that it is the first DC film to get released after the Justice League debacle.
Recently when a rumor claiming Warner Bros. has cut 20 minutes of footage from Aquaman’s final theatrical cut started making rounds on the internet, director James Wan had to personally step in to cut the rumor off at the knees. He confirmed that there’s no truth to the rumor.
In the past, reports of extensive reshoots, director changes, and bad critical reviews had greatly affected Justice League’s box office performance. So, it was important for the film studio to clear out everything as they didn’t want to take any chances with Aquaman.
Talking more about the film, Aquaman will dig deeper into the origin of the DC underwater superhero. The film will see the half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur battling with his half-brother Orm for the throne of Atlantis. It has been rated PG-13 for its “sequences of sci-fi violence and action” as well as “language”.
Aquaman stars Jason Momoa (Arthur Curry), Amber Heard (Mera), Patrick Wilson (Orm a.k.a. Ocean Master), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta), Nicole Kidman (Queen Atlanna), Willem Dafoe (Nuidis Vulko), Dolph Lundgren (Nereus) and Temuera Morrison (Thomas Curry).
The film will release in China on December 7, two weeks before its international release on December 21.
