Though it was the first time that we’ve ever seen a live-action Justice League on the big screen, not a whole of lot people were happy with the movie. It remains one of the most divisive films of the year (Star Wars: The Last Jedi ended up becoming the most divisive film of the year). Because people wanted to love this film, there’s a lot of controversy regarding what would have been if not for all the reshoots. Fans continue to plead with WB for an uncut version or even a director’s cut version from Zack Snyder. There was even a gathering outside WB for the Zack Snyder cut!
The pleas aren’t unfounded either. The 3-4 trailers released in the years leading up to the movie have shown us several scenes that ultimately never made it into the movie. As well, since the release of Justice League in November, there have been several deleted scenes surfacing online. Though I can’t say there is a Zack Snyder cut that we’re missing, there’s certainly a lot of material left on the cutting room floor to make that 2-hour runtime.
Alfred says “Hi.”
And here’s another one to add to the list. It seems a scene surfaced online via a Spanish fan Twitter. It’s a very short, 10-second clip featuring Jeremy Irons as Alfred greeting the team. Though the caption explains that they are walking into the Flying Fox, Irons’ reaction seems to indicate that this is his first exposure to Cyborg.
Se filtra una nueva escena eliminada de #JusticeLeague sin el CGI pulido en la que vemos al equipo saludando a Alfred, momentos antes de emprender el viaje a la batalla final en el ‘Flying Fox’. Crece la posibilidad de ver escenas como esta añadidas al Blu-ray/DVD de la película. pic.twitter.com/Iai52QL6CV

A very inconsequential scene and seemingly understandable that it was cut from the flick. It doesn’t really add a whole lot to the film except for some levity, when the film already had plenty. It was a trim that seems kind of necessary.
Justice League will be hitting digital shelves on January 30, so maybe we’ll be seeing some more cut scenes then.
