We all have witnessed more than our fair share of examples of films that have prominent scenes in a trailer that are nowhere to be found in the finished product. If there was a movie that could be seen as a poster child of that concept, it may very well be Justice League.
That film had countless examples of nonexistent scenes, nonexistent dialogue, and different takes of similar scenes. Hell, fans have even cut together full trailers that consist of all the moments cut out from the finished product. When you have a film that has spanned two directors, stuff like that is bound to happen (I’d also like to point to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story as another example).
One big scene that was absent from Justice League came at the tail end of the “All In” trailer for the film. We saw a slow push-in on Alfred, and he says, “He says you’d come. Now let’s hope you’re not too late.”
Fans had speculated that this was chronicling the return of Superman, but as stated above, the scene never came. Now, thanks to the digital release of Justice League, we now know more of the context around the scene. As we reported last Friday, there has been a recently-released scene that shows off Superman in the Fortress of Solitude after returning from Smallville. This is where he gets his suit.
From there, he heads to the Batcave, where he sees Alfred. Superman then says, “I’m assuming you’re Alfred.”
“Master Kent,” Alfred replies. “He said you’d come. Now let’s hope you’re not too late.”
Yeah, that wasn’t a whole lot more than fans were hoping for, but at least now we know for sure what the purpose was behind it all.
Is this a scene you wish was in the final cut? Let us know your thoughts down below!
