Would you be interested in seeing a Gone With The Wind-length Dark Knight Rises?

We only count this in the rumor category because of the wording from the source, but check out this quote from MTV’s Kevin Sullivan (via CBM) regarding the rough cut of the film that has already been screened for studio execs.

The Dark Knight Rises is real and finished, presumably in the form of a four-hour rough cut. There’s no official word on the reaction to the screening, as of yet.”

It’s the word “presumably” that raises the red flag here. Does this mean that he doesn’t know? Is he plucking a number out of the air or making a joke?

True, the cut for The Dark Knight Rises has some editing in its future, but exactly how much? How much essential story is uncuttable? Will we have a three-hour, epic finale? Will you see it if it ends up being over three hours?

UPDATE: So, it seems that our Spid-erm…bat senses were correct in thinking that he had no information regarding the film’s actual length. From Kevin Sullivan’s Twitter (via Batman-News.com):

In any case, this has got us wondering about the real running time. Any speculations?

    I will see it no matter how long it is.

    The Dark Knight Rises will be around 2 hours and 35 minutes … I’d bet a few bucks on this number, I could be wrong but I doubt it.

    3 hours would be fine, there’s a lot of story to this finale.  Looks like this guy was just covering his arse though.  His initial quote doesn’t seem like a joke in any way.

    I don’t mind however long :) It’ll be goddamn epic :)

  • Sarah

    I bet TDNR will be over 2 1/2 hours but under 3 hours. I think that would about cover it.

    Neverending movie please?

  • Lorena

    I would see it if it was 3 hours. No joke.
