If you've read stories or seen (generally hostile) tweets about the runtime of the upcoming Justice League movie, be aware they're based on a fabrication.
@ZackSnyder Disappointed the JL movie is only 170 minutes... also curious as movie isn't finished yet, but IMDB knows exact running time?— jon berg (@thejonberg) March 31, 2017
One of the film's producers, Jon Berg, mocked the various reports about the movie's length on Twitter, and that denial got picked up at Batman News, who noted, "Berg's account isn't verified, but he's followed by Geoff Johns and Patty Jenkins, and Johns has publicly tweeted at him before, confirming its legitimacy."
Berg, along with Johns, is responsible for charting the course for DC Films at present, so if he's pretty sure nobody has seen a final cut yet, he's probably right, even if Jason Momoa thinks the rough cut that exists is the best movie ever made.
If there was any doubt left after that explanation, director Zack Snyder (just moments ago as of this writing) popped on to add, "Forgot to tell you that I screened the first cut of JL for IMDB. Thought that was standard WB procedure. No?"
