With Wonder Woman 1984 now less than a month out from its delayed release date, it is being reported from the Korea Media Rating Board that the Gal Gadot-headlined superhero sequel clocks in at 150 minutes, making it the second-longest movie in the DC Extended Universe to date.
For comparison, 2017’s Wonder Woman came in nine minutes shorter at 2 hours and 21 minutes, while only Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ran for longer (152 minutes in its theatrical form and 183 minutes for its Ultimate Edition). That will change however with the arrival of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which will initially be released in four parts on HBO Max next year before being combined into a single four-hour movie.
And as for whether Warner Bros. expects Wonder Woman 1984 to hold its currently scheduled October date, a final decision will likely come once Tenet’s numbers are in this weekend, but studio executive Ann Sarnoff seemingly ruled out a Mulan-style shift to PVOD, telling THR that: “Certain movies deserve to be on the big screen. My belief is Wonder Woman is one of those.”
