The runtime has been reportedly revealed for DC‘s next movie, Aquaman. Set to release next month, the Jason Momoa led film will have a total runtime of 143 minutes. It was previously said to be 140 minutes by the Australian theatres. However, Vertical Entertainment, which is the film’s distribution company confirmed the runtime to be 2 hours 23 minutes, making it the third longest DC Extended Universe movie ever.
When James Wan released the first teaser of Aquaman, it was called just a Black Panther rip-off. However, a month back, the director surprised everyone by releasing a 5-minute trailer, which gave us a look at the King of Atlantis in his original comic avatar. The trailer showed the perfect chemistry between Arthur Curry and his love interest, Mera, along with the introduction of much awaited DC Villain, Black Manta.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry / Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as David Kane / Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Murk, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin, and Michael Beach as Jesse Kane.
Arthur Curry is the reluctant ruler of Atlantis and King of the Seven Seas, who finds himself caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt, but committed to protecting the entire globe.
Aquaman swims into theaters on December 21st, 2018.
