Many have fret or salivated over the proposed runtime of the Snyder Cut being over four hours long. It was so long that the film was initially planned to release in parts on HBO Max before plans changed to release it in its entirety.

Zack Snyder has even said that Justice League will have a natural place for an intermission for viewers with “a beautiful suite of music.” HBO Max will also reportedly make viewing easier by adding built-in indentations to the user interface, separating the movie into parts with each having a title. Now, the runtime for the film has been officially confirmed, and Snyder was on the dot when he said that it went over four hours “by a few minutes.”


In a press release (via Gabriel Labraña) the exact runtime for Zack Synder's Justice League has been revealed to be 4 hours, 1 minute, 28 seconds long.


Fans have been waiting for years to see their efforts rewarded, and due to an ongoing pandemic, Snyder was finally allowed to finish what he started. At just over four hours, that ends up being the length of two whole movies, which makes sense considering not even half of Zack Snyder's original footage was used in the theatrical cut.

While it won't be released in parts as initially planned, there will be an intermission within the movie with HBO Max viewers given an even more viewer-friendly experience with it being intersected in parts. Regardless of whether this story is continued in whatever format, it will be exciting to see everything that wasn't included in the previous theatrical release.
