LISTEN: The six-minute theme for The Batman is absolutely epic
It has also been confirmed that the new movie will be 175 minutes long!
As we get closer to the official release date of The Batman, more and more little bits of information are being released, getting us consistently more and more excited to see it.
Earlier in the week, the Motion Picture Association of America put those rumours of an "adults only" version of the Caped Crusader to bed, giving the movie a certificate of PG-13 "for strong violent and disturbing content, drug content, strong language, and some suggestive material".
Also this week, the movie's IMDb page was updated to reflect the movie's official run time: two hours, 55 minutes.
That makes it either the second-longest comic book movie of all time (after Avengers: Endgame's three hours and one minute), or the third-longest of all time (if you include Zack Snyder's Justice League at four hours and two minutes).
And now we've got the official theme for the movie, which is exactly as moody and epic as you'd expect.
The standards for a Batman theme are already pretty high, what with Danny Elfman's style iconic score from 1989's Batman used in both The Animated Series and re-used in Joss Whedon's version of Justice League. And then there was Hans Zimmer's version for Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy, which felt like it has impacted and influenced the work of every single composer in the field since it was released in 2005.
This time around, we've got Michael Giacchino on scoring duties, who has previously won an Oscar for his work on Pixar's Up, but has also recently scored the likes of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Jurassic World as well as being responsible for that goosebump-inducing theme for Lost.
The almost seven-minute long track is grandiose and constantly shifting, while also being suitably epic, dark and gothic. In short, we can't wait to hear this pounding out of the speakers in the biggest, loudest IMAX screen we can find!
The Batman is released in Irish cinemas on Friday, 4 March.
