Having been granted all but free reign to complete his vision, Zack Snyder delivered a weighty, four-hour superhero epic with his long-awaited cut of Justice League, which of course was soaked in the filmmaker’s signature style.
Naturally that included plenty of slow motion – not just for the film’s big action scenes and set pieces, but also super-stylised extended sequences of Lois Lane ordering coffee, Barry Allen admiring Iris West, Icelandic women enjoying the aroma of Arthur Curry’s sweater, et al.
If you’ve been wondering just how much slo-mo there is, then we have good news for you as IGN has done the calculations and worked out that Zack Snyder’s Justice League includes a total of 24 minutes and 7 seconds of slow motion footage, from a grand total of 4 hours, 1 minute, and 53 seconds.
We’re not actually sure how useful this information is, but at least the next time someone says “half the movie was slow motion!” you can respond with, “well actually it was 9.97%, or 10.35% if you don’t include the end credits.”
In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad, and Darkseid, and their dreadful intentions.
