Empire Cinemas Says Runtime for ‘Justice League’ is of 119 Minutes
Yesterday, we reported that, allegedly, the official runtime for Justice League will be of just above two hours –121 minutes including credits– but now, it may seem like things have changed… again.
According to Empire Cinemas, a British theatre chain, the official runtime of Justice League, including the film’s credits is 1 hour, 59 minutes, and 53 second, or 119 minutes if you prefer it that way.

This makes the film two minutes shorter than last time, once again “confirming” that the movie will, in fact, be the shortest DCEU film so far.
To put it in perspective Man of Steel’s runtime was 143 minutes, while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had a runtime of 153 minutes and Suicide Squad a runtime of 123 minutes. The latest DCEU film, Wonder Woman, had a run time of 141 minutes.
This runtime is sure unexpected, as it’s the first time we see the League uniting and some characters like Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg are making its film debut, so many expected this film to be largest of them all. However, one of the most criticized aspects of Batman V Superman is its long runtime, so maybe this is for the best.
All we have left is to believe in what Warner is doing and probably an extended edition on the horizon (?)
What do you think about this news? Do you think 119 minutes is enough time?
Let us know in the comments below!
The League will unite with the help of the Speed Force on November 17, 2017.
