While Barry Allen might be starting a new timeline and bringing together Michael Keaton’s Batman and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl in the upcoming film, he won’t be completely missing his previous DCEU cast members.
Another Familiar Face Returns for The Flash
The Flash just got one last trailer, and it revealed another returning character from the Justice League film.
The familiar face is none other than Jeremy Iron’s Alfred, who can be seen talking to Barry over comms about meeting up with Ben Affleck’s Batman.
The last time the two interacted was in Zack Snyder’s Justice League towards the end of the movie.
The entire new trailer can be seen below, with Irons' Alfred appearing at the :09 mark:
Jeremy Irons made his DCEU debut in 2016's Batman v Superman before his appearance in Justice League.
Who Else Will Be Showing Up for Ezra Miller's Film?
For fans of Jeremy Irons’ Alfred, this will almost certainly be the last time he gets any time to shine in the DCU.
He’ll be joining Ben Affleck and most of the top names in the former DCEU in not being a part of the new DCU. The upcoming Batman film The Brave and the Bold is already confirmed to feature a new actor as the Caped Crusader, a change that will likely extend to his iconic butler.
Perhaps Alfred can sneak in a few seconds of screen time before Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom rolls the credits.
But will any other Justice League members will be joining the fun? It would be nice for the movie to give Henry Cavill’s hero a brief cameo at the very least, and perhaps Jason Momoa’s Aquaman could get a small mention to set the stage for his sequel later this year.
Still, it doesn’t sound like it’s gotten any better even with new management—in fact, he’s the only Justice League member without a profile icon on the new Max streaming series.
Maybe it’s about time the DCU finally starts fresh…ish.
The Flash hits theaters on June 16.
