Henry Cavill Posts First Image Of Black Superman Suit From ‘Justice League’


Spoilers from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice included in this article.

When fans saw Clark Kent die at the end of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice it was apparent that the Man of Steel was not nearly as dead as Doomsday wanted him to be. We were given a small teaser at the very end of the movie that showed there was still life inside of his grave. With Justice League coming out in 2017 and Superman apparently “dead”, fans were left to wonder just how director Zack Snyder was going to continue moving his story forward.

Rumors circulated that Henry Cavill would be sporting a black outfit instead of his classic Big Blue Boy Scout garb. During the Death and Return of Superman multi-issue comic story-arc, the Man of Steel returns after Doomsday killed him. He isn’t the same though, he is a depowered Superman that wears a black suit. It looks as if Henry Cavill has teased that they will be going to same route in the Justice League movie.

Cavill posted the first image to Instagram of what appears to be the black suit he might be wearing in Justice League. The image is close up, so you can’t see much, but the design is very Kryptonian. The suit looks very sleek and shiny from this close. Check out the image below:

Nothing has been confirmed in regards to an official announcement that his suit will be black in Justice League, but this tease from Cavill is certainly tantalizing. Are you excited that Henry Cavill might be sporting the black Superman suit in Justice League? Make sure to let us know what you think in the comments!

Jack of some trades, master of some others. That saying never really made a lot of sense to me.

  • Oklems

    oh boy


    Wow, goosebumps. Can’t wait.

  • Matches Malone

    Very cool and unexpected. I do certainly hope that a) it doesn’t have a cape, and, b) he sports his iconic look in the film before too long

  • JNAZ

    Won’t believe until he posts a super close up shot of his mullet.

    • Danny Heard


      • William Nelson

        No mullet, no money!


    • Antonio F.

      He never had a mullet. He had long hair. How do people not know the difference?

  • Joseph Chaisson

    sitting here, wait patiently for someone to put Henry’s face on ego parker.

  • CSM


  • Ambi Ent

    it looks more like a monochrome picture of his standard suit than a black suit

    • rogbngp

      It is. That’s just a photoshopped familiar picture that someone (staff at HH?) made–as far as I know it’s not from Cavill or WB. Henry just shared the picture you see of a close-up of the suit’s texture that you see above.

      • SAMURAI36

        And how do you “know” this? Either way, the fact that he’s endorsing it, speaks volumes.

        • Staff @ HH replying: It was posted to Henry Cavill’s official Instagram. Please follow the source link at the bottom of the article, or simply click here: https://www.instagram.com/henrycavill/?hl=en

          • SAMURAI36

            You’re telling me this? I already knew that it was real. Pass this info along to some of these other guys that are doubting it.

          • Not you, that was for the guy before you. I just continued the thread. Apologies.

          • SAMURAI36

            Gotcha. You might wanna click directly on his message, though. Otherwise he might not see it.

          • rogbngp

            Please see my response to Sam above!

        • rogbngp

          Sam, Cavill is definitely letting us know about the black suit, I’m just responding to the image of him wearing it in the article above. Compare it to this official MoS wallpaper: http://www.joblo.com/newsimages1/clark-image-2-6-30.jpg

  • Radar Technician Matt

    Oh boy… it’s happening.

  • flavortang

    *a single tear rolls down my cheek* Good lord, I am so hyped. I hope we get to see a krypto-mullet.

  • chaburchak

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me…

  • Sonny Crockett

    Suit will be black till the powers come back, probably act III in this film. Mullet has ZERO chance of happening…..LOL

    • flavortang

      “Mullet has ZERO chance of happening.” You just shut up.

      • Sharito7

        mullet is awful!

        • flavortang

          TAKE THAT BACK!!!1!!

          • SAMURAI36

            Meh, I’m good either way on the mullet. But the Black suit is an absolute must.

            Plus, I’m sure they’ll grow his hair long in some for or another. I’m good with that.

        • yeah, no mullet. I want the beard though

      • Foreign Geek

        We’ve already seen the black suit tho…in MoS. Its what Zod and em all wore. Plus in the dream sequence he had it on too.

        • flavortang

          It won’t be a dream sequence when Kal wears it, though.

      • Sonny Crockett

        Not a chance….LOL

    • rogbngp

      Yeah, it’ll just be long hair, and I’ll guess too likey a beard. Not styled as a mullet.

  • Bruce Norris

    Anyone remember “Superman Red/Superman Blue”? Let’s hope Snyder doesn’t steal that too.

    • SAMURAI36

      LOL, how do you “Steal” something that technically belongs to you?

      • Bruce Norris

        Come on, dude. The point is…don’t use that bad idea…(that ya didn’t come up with but is there to use).

        • SAMURAI36

          Whether it’s a bad idea or not is irrelevant. You said “steal”. That’s how the false narrative gets perpetuated.

          • Bruce Norris

            Glad I got you to clear it up for the masses. Still, DON’T USE IT.

      • clownprince2acnt


  • Jason Scarpelli

    Doesn’t do anything to me until I actually see Cavill in the suit

  • Kevin_Allen

    I am calling it… real Superman won’t wear this. This is the costume if Cyborg Superman, and cavill will play dual roles

    • They aren’t doing the whole “reign of the supermen” so there won’t be a cyborg Superman, or Eradicator, Superboy and Steel. This is Cavill, hence him posting it, wearing the black suit upon his return.

  • Cellphone Guy

    can you say the eradicator.

  • Sol Keronen

    There was a black suit in Man of Steel you noobs -.-

    • DaBA

      Please, oh wise and learned one, tell us which scene that was.

      • Zod had one under his armor (remember the 40 min fight scene at the end) and He (Superman) had one in the scene where Zod was in his head (while unconscious on Zod’s Ship), on the farm, before sinking into the sea of skulls. Now bow before the wise one.

        • Hinscher

          Well Zod’s didn’t have the Superman emblem, but the second part you are right about. Jor-El’s I believe was black, and would have had the Superman Emblem.
          But if you like the D.C. movies at all, be prepared to point out the obvious constantly. Sometimes I wonder if the haters have even watched the movies.

  • Maximillian Pegasus

    Where is the white on the costume?

  • Keith Allver

    Whos the superhero standing to the left of wonder women in the picture.Looks like some kind of cyborg.

    • Kawshik Ahmed

      His name s ‘Cyborg’ aka Victor Stone

      • Keith Allver


  • Ri3m4nn

    At least get the title right. Batman v Superman. It is not a capital V.

    I like that and I like even more that here it is not turning into another Marvel vs. DC Debate like on another Superhero related site :) Do we not also have a black Superman Suite in the new Rebirth Storyline?

  • Tom Witwicky

    hum… was it just a black and white pic ?…………….

  • Chris Tolbertson

    That is not at all how the story of his return went. The black suit was a solar suit that helped him absorb solar energy because he was very under powered. Luthor had nothing to do with it and Superman was certainly not rogue. There were 4 other imposters at the time and one of them was in fact a villain. That was the Cyborg. The Eradicator wore some black too but in the end he actually helped defeat the Cyborg and Mongul.

  • Cool Cool

    Justice league is ridiculously invincible. Could be good without Superman, but the moment he comes back to life and decides to get involved, the movie should be over in about 5 seconds.

    Too bad. I wish they could have left Superman dead.

  • clownprince2acnt

    last time someone one wore a black suit id didnt go over so well. See spiderman 3

    Seriously tho; its black and white pic..obviously.
