Over the weekend, news hit that Justice League would run at only 121 minutes, meaning that it would only be two hours and one minute long. The news came from the site Manabyte, who confirmed from sources who have seen the movie, as well as with theater chains that the film is indeed as short as they originally reported.

We also checked in with a source of our own, who said that theater chains have indeed been notified that the film is 121 minutes long. That is an official length for now, but the source also stated that sometimes these numbers are wrong, and get changed closer to the release of the film.

It certainly sounds like this could go either way. Were this some normal film, I’d be inclined to think this runtime was true. However, as we all know, Justice League recently wrapped some pretty extensive reshoots, and as such, they may very well be still cutting and adding things closer to the release date than most films.

However, if we’re to take this report at face value, from everything we know, it’s very possible that Justice League could very well be the shortest film in the DC Extended Universe to date. But is that a runtime that suits a film with as many characters as Justice League? We’ll have to wait and see for ourselves.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2o17.

    Who cares ? I’m personally not a fan of sitting in a chair for nearly 3hrs so im fine with this….I’m more interested in is it any good ?

    Two hours is a good runtime. It’s more than enough time to establish characters and run them through some action-adventure hijinks with a riveting conclusion. It’s the same runtime as Star Wars, so I think it’s in good company.

    I agree with others that if the story is good then 2 hour maybe all that you need. But in the past DC films have actually benefited form the scenes that ended up being cut for theatrical release. I have a feeling this will be more of the same.

    Longer doesn’t mean better. In B vs. S, which was almost three hours, a lot of the time was slow-motion visual porn and other filler. Same with Civil War: Do I really need 45 minutes of Cap & Tony punching each other?

    It may only be two hours long, but it’ll feel like forever.

    At 120 minutes, it’s too long by 119.5 minutes.
