Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” looks set to differ from other superhero films of late, including its predecessors, with confirmation this weekend that the film clocks in at just 121 minutes.
That makes it the shortest film in the DC Extended Universe movies so far – behind “Suicide Squad” at 123 minutes, “Wonder Woman” at 141 minutes, “Man of Steel” at 143 minutes, and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” at 151 minutes.
At the same time actor J.K. Simmons, who plays Commissioner Gordon in the movie, has spoken with Total Film (via Cosmic Book News) recently and suggests that a sequel is already moving forward:
“This is the first Justice League movie – we hope – of a few. They’re working on scripts for The Batman and for the next Justice League movie. It introduces my incarnation of Commissioner Gordon. I don’t have a lot to do. I feel like I just dipped my toe in the water of who Commissioner Gordon will be…
Obviously there are some very big shoes that I’m attempting to step into. Some really, really wonderful actors have played that part before. It’s like all of a sudden everyone in London is doing Hamlet. Now it’s my turn to be Gordon.”
The film, rated PG-13 for “sequences of sci-fi violence and action,” opens November 17th.
