Henry Cavill dons his unused black Superman suit from Justice League in this new image that imagines what we could have gotten from the Man of Steel in DC’s 2017 team-up flick.
Justice League was originally set to feature Henry Cavill in The Death And Return Of Superman black suit after his death at the hands of Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Although the film still featured Henry Cavill’s Superman returning from the dead, the final cut did not feature the black Superman suit. Leaving the black suit itself to be featured only in a deleted scene, though fans still hope to one day see Henry Cavill’s black Superman suit in Zack Snyder’s directors cut, which he recently confirmed does indeed exist.
Zack Snyder stepped down from directing Justice League after his daughter died by suicide, turning over directing duties to Joss Whedon, who was said to be directing additional photography as well as overseeing the post-production process in an effort to maintain Zack Snyder’s original vision. But the outcome resulted in what insiders described as a Frankenstein between the two directors.
The image below gives fans an idea of what they could have gotten from Zack Snyder’s version which would have seen Henry Cavill don his black Superman suit. Check it out by scrolling over in the post below!

So what do you think? Would you have liked to see Henry Cavill suit up in his black Superman suit in Justice League? Is there another Superman suit you would like to see Henry Cavill don on the big screen? Let us know in the comments below!
Henry Cavill walked away from negotiations to reprise his role as Superman last year after the studio failed to reach an agreement with the actor that would have seen him return for a cameo, delivering two lines of dialogue in Shazam!. The rumor that Henry Cavill’s version of Superman would appear but that we wouldn’t actually get to see Henry Cavill’s face turned out to be true. Warners managed to get away with this by simply keeping Superman’s head out of the frame of the two shots he was in.
Henry Cavill can be as Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. The actor recently finished filming The Witcher series for Netflix but fans still hope for Henry Cavill’s return as Superman in the DC’s shared cinematic universe.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans, and Ron Cephas Jones. Here is the plot synopsis for Shazam!:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
Shazam! is now playing, and will be followed by Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the DC Films franchise and Henry Cavill as we learn it.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
