    from the MTV article:
    "Nolan, who wrapped filming just two weeks ago, said he's shooting for a running time comparable to the first film's 140 minutes"

    Yea Nolan does not make short films. I'm sure it will be about 140 just like Begins. So I'm pumped. Nice to hear that though.

    i wouldn't hate it if TDK was 3 hours, as long as it moved along well.

    I like this, because it shows Nolan has a lot of story to tell, like the first one. He's invested in making a full narrative and bringing Batman and his world to life.

    Now its funny to compare it to a laughable comic film "franchise" like Fantastic Four, especially the putrid second one and its running time of 92 minutes. Those people have very little story to tell, which is why you get such a short running time.

    At this past ComicCon, Favreau stated Iron Man would be around 90 min as well.

    Have there been any good comic movie films that have been done in only a 90 mins run time?

    Good. I liked the length of Batman Begins and since it's a sequel it can pretty much jump right into the story, and in Gotham so it will still be epic, packed, and eventful the whole way through.

    Awesome. Just under 2 and a half hours is the perfect running time for this type of movie, if you ask me. I feel cheated if an action movie lasts under 2 hours.

    140 is a good length now that the origin is out of the way.

    Actually yeah, now that I think about it, it's a damn good length.

    Even with [BLACKOUT]two villains, (though three at the end)[/BLACKOUT], it's awesome. I can tell he's really going to focus on both Bats and the Joker. It may be the Joker's film, per se, but this is Batman's series and Nolan knows it. ;)

    That's actually pretty disappointing. It seems to me, unlike the fobs involved with FF movies, that Favreau really cares about the source material. But then again, I don't think Iron Man's backstory and world itself are quite as detailed and complex as Batman's, but I must also admit I don't know Iron Man very well.

    There is kind of a trend; lots of badly accepted comic book movies have under 2 hour run time; X-Men 3, FF2, Catwoman...while well performing comic book movies like BB, B89, X2, Superman (original), Spider-Man have 2 hour plus running times.
