Time is something we have a finite amount of, and it seems that Zack Snyder is intent on the new Justice League taking up a chunk of yours. Coming in at a whopping 170 minutes (2 hours 50 minutes) the length of this feature makes Justice League officially the longest comicbook movie ever. Here, we’ve outlined how this length stacks up against the other long superhero films – both in the DCEU and the MCU:
The Dark Knight Rises – 165 minutes
Watchmen – 162 minutes
The Dark Knight – 152 minutes
Batman vs Superman – 151 minutes
Man of Steel – 148 minutes
Captain America: Civil War – 146 minutes
Avengers Assemble – 143 minutes
(A movie where someone assembles a team of superheroes – take note, Snyder – managed to be half an hour shorter than Justice League and cram in one more teammate.)
Avengers: Age of Ultron – 142 minutes
Logan – 141 minutes
Batman Begins – 140 minutes
Remember the good old days when films were 90 minutes long? It’s clear that the comicbook movie producers have some kind of bet going as to how long we’re willing to sit and watch are favourite characters on the big screen.
Snyder’s Justice League, starring Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher, is slated for release on November 17th this year.
