UPDATED: ‘Justice League’ Confirmed As Shortest DC Extended Universe Movie To Date

Justice League RuntimeUPDATE: Heroic Hollywood editor-in-chief Umberto Gonzalez has confirmed the runtime for Justice League is actually 119 minutes.

The original story is as follows.

We now have confirmation that Justice League, the cinematic debut of the DC superhero team, is going to be the shortest DC Extended Universe movie to date by a huge margin.

Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis took to Twitter this morning to confirm that the runtime for the film is 2 hours and 1 minute, putting to rest wild rumours of a nearly 3-hour final cut for the movie. Check out the tweet below!

By comparison, the previous DCEU movies Man of SteelBatman v Superman: Dawn of JusticeSuicide Squad and Wonder Woman have clocked in at 143 minutes, 151 minutes (182 minutes for the Ultimate Cut), 123 minutes (136 minutes for the Extended Cut), and 141 minutes respectively. Hopefully a lean runtime like this can equal up to a solid superhero movie and a worthy debut for the iconic superhero alliance.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Ciáran Hinds, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, and J.K. Simmons. Here’s the official synopsis:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League is in cinemas November 17.

    Well considering its 17 month shooting schedule and cost, releasing a CLIFF NOTE cut makes sense…After all, dcfu gotta squeeze in as many screenings as they can in order to recoup a lil’ bit of gwap to offset the predicted monetary loss from this money pit.

    You have to figure, after all Snyder’s footage was deleted, Whedon only had 3 or 4 months to film a new movie. That’s why it’s so short.
