Henry Cavill’s black suit Superman returns in this awesome new artwork that imagines what could have been should the suit have been featured in the theatrical cut of Justice League.
Following his death in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC fans were excited for Justice League to adapt the famous comic book storyline The Death of Superman and Return of Superman which features Superman donning a black suit instead of his traditional red and blue costume. This ultimately never happened though as Justice League only featured the black Superman costume briefly in a deleted scene. But that’s not enough to stop fans from imagining what Henry Cavill could have looked like if the film has chosen to adapt the 1993 DC Comics storyline.
In a new piece of fan art from Instagram user “ihasankazi,” fans can get an idea for how Henry Cavill could have looked in the black Superman costume. You can check it out below!

Henry Cavill’s future as Superman is still uncertain. Henry Cavill exited negotiations to return as Superman for a cameo in the Shazam! movie last year. Shazam! still managed to feature his version of Superman but was not able to show his head in the frame of his shots as Henry Cavill still had yet to work out a deal with Warner Bros. and DC Films. Rumors have also swirled suggesting that Warner Bros. will be focusing on Supergirl in the DCEU going forward instead of Superman. 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel is writing the script for the Supergirl film which will be an origin story for Superman’s cousin Kara Zor-El.
Henry Cavill can be seen as Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Justice League. After Netflix’s The Witcher, Henry Cavill will star in Enola Holmes opposite Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown.
Here’s the official synopsis for Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD. Stay tuned for more updates on Henry Cavill and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
