The director’s cut of Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon is so long, even its cast couldn’t believe it

The cast of Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon have expressed shock at the extensive runtime of the duology’s forthcoming director’s cuts.

Speaking to TechRadar at the UK junket for the Netflix franchise’s first instalment, Michiel Huisman and E. Duffy, who play Gunnar and Millius in Rebel Moon, were stunned to learn how much more content there’ll be in the sci-fi fantasy movie’s extended versions.

We already knew that Zack Snyder really wanted Rebel Moon‘s director’s cut to test our runtime limits. In August, the fan-favorite filmmaker suggested the extended R-rated cut of Rebel Moon Part 1: A Child of Fire, which doesn’t have a release date yet, will contain an extra hour’s worth of footage compared to its PG-13 edition. With the runtime of the latter set at two hours, the movie’s extended cut is likely to eclipse the three-hour mark.

That’s not all, either, as the PG-13 and R-rated versions of Rebel Moon Part 2: The Scargiver are expected to have similar runtimes to their predecessors. If that’s the case, The Scargiver‘s director’s cut will also run for around three hours, meaning anyone who watches Rebel Moon‘s Snyder cuts back-to-back will have to set aside a whopping six hours to do so.
