Who Is Alfred Talking To At The End Of The Justice League Trailer



For the second year in a row, Warner has released a Comic-Con trailer for their upcoming DC film Justice League. While the trailer is highly exciting and truly epic, there is one moment that has most fans scratching their heads. Just who is Jeremy Iron’s Alfred talking to at the end of the trailer?

In the final moments of the new Justice League trailer, we see Alfred working on the engine of a car outside at night when someone suddenly appears. A figure stands at the edge of the frame and Alfred looks up. “They said you’d come,” he says, looking up at a mystery character. “Let’s hope you’re not too late.”

Who is he talking to? There are many who consider the use of the word “hope” as an indication that it is Superman resurrected from the dead. However, it could be someone else. Here is a list of other possibilities.

Supergirl

Supergirl Justice League Trailer

There have been many rumours that Supergirl will join the DCEU in Man of Steel 2, but what if she already shows up here? We know that there was an abandoned pod in Superman’s Fortress of Solitude in Man of Steel. We know that Kara Zor-El exists in this universe (there was even a prequel comic book to back this up). We also know that Steppenwolf knows about the planet’s Kryptonian protector and perhaps even what his powers and abilities under a yellow sun are. What if instead of the mind-controlled Superman as a bad guy we get a mind-controlled Supergirl instead? What if Darkseid is using her as a weapon against the others? What if that’s his trump card? Perhaps she is the key to resurrecting Superman. When you sit back and think about it, it really isn’t that impossible. Also, what if it is a hologram of Supergirl that Bruce Wayne is looking at in the Batcave? The figure’s legs look a lot thinner than Superman’s legs.

Green Lantern

The trailer teases the existence of the Green Lantern Corps when Steppenwolf describes Earth as vulnerable since it has “No Lanterns” and “No Kryptonian.” There are many images that have popped up on the net with fans swearing that they see a tint of green in Alfred’s glasses and a glowing green figure underneath one of the flying crafts. Could it be that the Lanterns have come to save the day? Perhaps we will see Abin Sur. Perhaps his death will give way to Hal Jordan and setup the Green Lantern film.

Martian Manhunter

There are many who claim that they see a figure that resembles Martian Manhunter in Alfred’s glasses. My eyesight isn’t that great, but I don’t see it. Still, knowing Batman, and the fact that he foresaw the impending danger to the planet, it won’t be a big leap to assume that Bruce called for help from the stars. Martian Manhunter is almost synonymous with the Justice League and has been part of the team in the comic books for years. There has even been a petition for the character to be included into the film. Did the fans get an answer?

Flashpoint Flash

Flashpoint Flash Batman v Superman

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had a very bizarre sequence that somehow fits into the bigger plan for the franchise. Flash appears to a sleeping Bruce Wayne and foretells of a doomed future. He repeatedly states “Lois Lane is the key” and that she must be saved. He also says Bruce “was right about him” and that he needs to find “them” before disappearing off screen. Perhaps Bruce told Alfred about this strange experience and told him that Flash could return to warn them or help them later again. Maybe that dash of red is from his red suit. Maybe that glowing green or blue is from the lightning.

Shazam

Shazam

This one seems a bit of a stretch but since DC is starting to setup the Shazam films (releasing Apr 5, 2019) it could very well be true. Maybe he already exists in this universe and Batman kept the seventh meta-human a secret from the rest of the group. Shazam, also known as Captain Marvel, is one of DC’s most popular superheroes, but this will be the first time he’s appeared in a feature-length, big-screen, live-action movie. Since Justice League is setting up a lot more of the universe, an introduction to the character and his abilities are in order.

In the end, it’s probably a safer bet to go with Superman. It’s a lot more likely that Superman is the mysterious hero Alfred is talking to. However, there are a few questions that remain unanswered. Like, why would Superman visit Alfred? Why wouldn’t he go directly to the fight? And what’s with the strange sound effect? Why would the water vibrate?

Justice League fans will have to wait until the movie hits theatres to find out which theory is right. The film will be released Nov. 17.

Actually, I think it might not be Superman.

Guest

Could be Flashpoint Batman or Flash from the future?

Guest

Wtf???

Guest

IF YA SMELLLLLLL WHAT BLACK ADAM IS COOKIN

Guest

Yo mama

Guest
Guest

Has to be Superman

Guest

The man in the mirror.

Guest

Superman

Guest

I seriously hope they don’t show Supes in the trailers and when it happens it’s going to be a surprise. If you listen to the trailer you will hear Steppenwolf mention the Lantern Corps. So maybe just maybe Green Lantern, Idris Elba would make a great Jojn Stewart.

Guest

Mahershala Ali would probably look more like jon Stewart than idris does.

Guest

Yeah that’s a great choice too. Also he isn’t tied to Marvel

Guest

By the way the time he mentions No Lanterns is at 1:25 on trailer

Guest

Thinking the way he was talking, the familiarity, it was Robin or Nightwing.

Guest

How useful could those two be against Steppenwolf?

Guest

Daniel Meléndez I don’t know bro. It’s a theory. For all we know he could be talking to Stan Lee! 😂

Guest

Joss whedon.

Guest

The T-Rex from Jurassic Park.

Guest

I’m Batman *knocks out a villain using plastic batrang and smoke bomb*

Guest

Green arrow? He could very easily exist and Batman just didn’t put him on the recruitment roster for underwhelming powers

Guest

Wait wait, guys check out 1:30 on the trailer. Bruce is checking outside a window and you see a red boot and red cape floating. Could this be Super Girl perhaps????

Guest

It could be because it’s been said that supergirl might appear in man of steel 2. Plus Alfred is talking to superman because you could see the red from his cape

Guest

That could also be Supergirl. Supes suit isn’t as bright red as this. Supergirl has always been brighter.

Guest

Also Alfred knows how powerful Superman is. Would he not be in awe of him? If a unknown girl who wears Superman’s symbol would he not just be surprised?

Guest

I didn’t even think about Shazam but I know it’s Supes.

Guest

John Cena

Guest

C’mo you can see the red cape right there at the bottom

Guest

I see sup’s in the glasses of Alfred. :P wearing a black superman shirt with his arms stretched to hover.

Guest

Supergirl ?

Guest

Thor.

Guest

Its superman, you can see the red shoulder. But I believe we will see Abin Sur Green Lantern in JL movie and he will die in that movie.

Guest

Superman

Guest

The Martian Manhunter aka J’on J’onzz

Guest

Superman, because Alfred also stresses the word ” Hope “

Guest

Please let it be Supes!!!!

Guest

Superman (black suit), who has brought the green lantern ring (off Hal) before it goes and find John Stewart

Guest

Gl look at the green refection in alfreds glasses

Guest

It’s obviously Superman. GL wouldn’t have that effect on the glass, and Capt. Marvel isn’t part of the story yet.

Guest

Kevin Feige/Iron Man to rescue DC..

Guest

I’m thinking it’s Martian Manhunter. Because they’ve crammed in everything else…why not at this point?

Guest

Superman

Guest

At first we were all certain it was Superman, but now there are doubts. Could be anyone really. Many good answers here.

Guest

Its superman, don’t you see the cape??

Guest

Yeah I spotted that cape and red boots. Supes boots aren’t that red. Also this entire Saga is basically revolving around Darkeid and currently we have Steppenwolf as the main villain, but who do you know is a major part in the Darkseid story in comics, SuperGirl. I am betting on her. DC has found success with the ladies. So yeah…

Guest

Christian Bale

Guest

It’s DOOMSDAY…

DOOMSDAY can revive himself and he cannot be killed the same way as he did prior. So, in theory, this is the respawned version of Doomsday where he’s a bit more intelligent and not so much a monster.

Good theory huh…?

(Sorry, got tired of the, “it’s GL/ it’s SUPES” typical responses).

Guest

Superman

Guest

CGI garbage

Guest

Your girlfriend’s CGI garbage. Fuck you.

Guest

Superman

Guest

Maybe Nightwing ☺

Guest

NIGHTWING

Guest

It’s superman, moreover Alfred is at the graveyard where supes was buried.

Guest

It’s Superman. :-)

Guest

Superman… I guess the key word in his sentence was the word “hope”

Guest

Doesn’t Alfred look like Robert Downey Jr when he gets very old lol

Guest
Guest

Supes

Guest

It’s the arrival of Superman

Guest

He doesn’t look surprised enough for it to be supes who they all presumed is dead

Guest

Probably Martian manhunter
