Will JUSTICE LEAGUE Benefit from a Much Shorter Runtime?

Will JUSTICE LEAGUE Benefit from a Much Shorter Runtime?

Turns out Justice League‘s runtime will only be two hours, making it the shortest movie in the DCEU. Will less be more for the film? We broke it down on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with the early reviews for Stranger Things 2, and what holiday treats you can expect this week from our Nerdoween celebration.

Host Jessica Chobot was joined today by the Nerdist Editor League, as Rachel Heine, Kyle Anderson, and Alicia Lutes sat in to talk about Justice League‘s official 121-minute runtime. This is dramatically shorter than that 170-minute long cut we heard about, so where did the missing 50 minutes go? What got left behind? Is a much shorter film a positive development? Or would we have preferred a much longer film like we got with Blade Runner: 2049.

We’ve also started getting early reviews for Stranger Things 2, and they sound good, with praise for character development and the subversion of normal sequel tropes. So now what are we looking forward to? And since some critics have said the season takes longer to get going, do we prefer a slow burn, or would we rather the show hit the Upside Down running? Also, since the season takes place in 1984, are there any specific references from that year we hope to see?

Finally the Queen of ‘Ween, Rachel Heine, gave a taste of what to expect this week from Nerdoween, our celebration of all things Halloween, and we discussed our favorite October traditions, the merits of candy corn, and our favorite holiday treats and horror movies.

Just like it is every weekday, Nerdist News Talks Back was live at 1:00 p.m. PST on our YouTube and Alpha channels, so you can join in on the discussion with us when you tune in. And don’t forget to vote in today’s Monster Madness poll!

Tune in tomorrow to talk back with us. Maybe together we’ll find those missing 50 minutes from Justice League.

But we still want to hear your thoughts on today’s topics, so talk back to us in the comments section below.
