A new report reveals the run time of “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Meanwhile, the cast members of the movie have joined an initiate by the charity organisation Omaze to support different projects.

AMC Theatres has revealed that the run time of the movie is 2 hours and 31 minutes. Most Hollywood movies don’t go over the 2 hour mark, but big budget movies have always been an exception.

Fantasy movies like “The Lord of the Rings” series are known for being long. Christopher Nolan’s 2012 movie “The Dark Knight Rises” had a run time of 2 hours and 45 minutes, while Zack Snyder’s 2013 flick “Man of Steel” was 2 hours and 23 minutes long.

The forthcoming Snyder movie will need to be longer than 2 hours, as it will have to focus on the story arcs of The Caped Crusader (Ben Affleck), Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) and Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg). The two superheroes will also have to deal with the main villain Doomsday in the climax fight.

“Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” will also be introducing new characters like Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa). The sheer number of major characters and their storylines would have made it difficult for the director to pack it in less than 2 hours run time.

Meanwhile, cast members Affleck, Cavill and Eisenberg have come together to support charity organisations. Omaze has announced that with a contribution that starts from $10 (AU $13.91) fans can win a chance to fly with Cavill in a helicopter, take a picture with Affleck, join Eisenberg on the red carpet and also ride in the Batmobile.

The contributions will go to the charity organisations nominated by the three cast members. Affleck nominated the Eastern Congo Initiative, which was founded by him, Eisenberg nominated the SEED Project and Cavill nominated Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

“Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” is slated to be released on March 24th in Australia and on March 25th in the US. Some of the other cast members of the movie are Jeffery Dean Morgan (Thomas Wayne), Amy Adams (Lois Lanes), Jeremy Irons (Alfred) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White).
