Fans were mostly pleased with the new footage of Justice League at Comic-Con, and the good news is there will be plenty more of it when the final project releases.
That's because the film's runtime range has been revealed by Forbes' Mark Hughes. Hughes responded to another comment about WB not releasing a 3-hour film. Hughes said, "My understanding is the expected final range is 2 hrs 20 min to 2 hrs 35min but depends on the new filming."
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice came in at around 2 and half hours as well, though the Ultimate edition ran close to 3 hours. Wonder Woman hit the 2 hours and 21-minute mark, so Justice League will probably be closer to that than Batman V Superman.
As for the new filming Hughes is referring to, that would be the extensive reshoots Warner Bros. is undergoing for the project. The studio is having a difficult time getting all of the actors back on the set due to other commitments, and the price keeps heading upwards with every extra week of filming.
It will likely get trimmed to that 2 and a half hour mark eventually, but it should make for a packed extra scene section on the home video release.

In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, and features an ensemble cast that includes Ben Affleck (Batman), Henry Cavill (Superman), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Ezra Miller (The Flash), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Ciarán Hinds (Steppenwolf), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent), Jeremy Irons (Alfred Pennyworth), J.K. Simmons (Commissioner Gordon), Amber Heard (Mera), Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) and Jesse Eisenberg (Lex Luthor).
Wonder Woman is in theaters now, and will be followed by Justice League on November 17, 2017; Aquaman on July 27, 2018; Shazam on April 5, 2019; Justice League 2 on June 14, 2019; Cyborg on April 3, 2020; and Green Lantern Corps on July 24, 2020.
