For those among you who felt Batman v Superman's 2.5 hour running time wasn't enough to experience their super quarrel in the dragged-out splendor it arguably deserved, then you are in for a treat.

Thanks to a Swedish retailer, the official run time for the R-rated Blu-ray and DVD extended edition has been revealed and you'll be happy to hear it clocks in at 181 minutes — an extra 30 minutes of increased violence, language, hopefully more gore, and a whole extra subplot.

According to reports, the extended edition will include Jena Malone's role that was cut entirely from the theatrical release and, as director Zack Snyder told Empire, will provide an extended view of Batman's knightmare sequence:

"Well I mean, let's just say this. I think it's OK to look at the extended dream sequence as an impressionistic view of a possible future, right? So, and that's not hard to, that's in the sequence, so I'm not, like, spoiling anything or making up anything that you didn't see. So the connection with Flash, the Flash part of that sequence, you can speculate if, whether or not Flash is coming from that reality or another one, but that's the fun stuff, to try and figure out exactly what Flash is saying to Bruce and what he means, because it's all, we know, so it's not, we're not making it up."

You can listen to Snyder's full interview with Empire — which, at 2 hours, is nearly as long as the actual movie — in the SoundCloud clip below. But, be warned, it contains pretty big BvS Spoilers.

Which BvS scenes would you like to see extended in the director's cut?
