Could ‘Justice League’ be the shortest DC Film to date?

All signs point to Justice League being the shortest DC Films release to date. Whilst tickets for the film don’t go on sale until the end of the month cinema chains are beginning to post details on its release.

Here in the UK Cineworld is still listing the film as 150mins in its placeholder page. Vue and Odeon have yet to list times. In the US AMC and Regal have both given the film a time of 121mins.

This timing was later backed up by cinema ticket site Fandango.

121mins, give or take 8-10mins for end credits, will put the story of the film around 1hr 45 to 1hr 50 in length. Shorter than Suicide Squad which was the previous shortest entry in the series. That film ran to 2hr 17mins.

Is it a problem? Probably not. Will the press make it out to be an issue? Probably.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Supermans selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes – Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash – it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman and Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman. Joining them are Jason Mamoa as Arthur Curry/Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Victor Stone/Cyborg, and Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash.

The film is directed by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon from a screenplay by Chris Terrio. Justice League hits cinemas on November 17th 2017 from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.
