Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s new fan artwork featuring the Henry Cavill as black suit Superman that we almost got in Zack Snyder’s Justice League film!
If you are like me and you saw those tantalizing snaps from the personal Instagram page of Henry Cavill in the black-suited Superman costume, then you were probably a little more than disappointed with what we ultimately got in Justice League. Well, at least we can wet the proverbial whistles of what almost was with spectacular fan art from creative Twitter users such as RameshDeSilva2.
The digital artist recently posted a still rendering of Henry Cavill from Justice League, but dutifully detailed the Big Blue Boyscout’s iconic blue and red with different shades of black. The surrounding sky is appropriately cloudy and dark, which compliments Superman’s moodier getup.
Check out the art yourself below:

Accompanying the still is the now infamous hashtag:
Of course, the artist is referencing the much talked about and very nonexistent “Snyder Cut” of Justice League that reportedly feature Henry Cavill as Superman in the black suit, among many of the director’s original ideas. Some passionate fans are insistent that Warner Bros. and DC release this version of the film, or at least put the money into finishing it.
While we wait to see Henry Cavill in the black Superman outfit, we will be able to see him in Netflix’s upcoming The Witcher series. Check out the synopsis:
Based on the fantasy series of novels and short stories by Andrzej Sapkowski, Netflix’s The Witcher will follow the monster slayer for hire named Geralt of Rivia. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich will also serve as an executive producer on the series while Alik Sakharov, Alex Garcia Lopez and Charlotte Brändström are on board as directors for the eight-episode first season.
The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.
The Witcher will be available on Netflix at an undetermined time.

The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
