Henry Cavill dons the classic Superman suit originally worn by Christopher Reeve in a new fan edit for the DCEU movies.
Henry Cavill’s Superman costume modernized the Kryptonian’s iconic look for the DC Extended Universe while also adding a sense of mythology to the iconic “S” logo, which has been instantly recognizable for decades. A stunning concept design shows Cavill wearing the classic costume worn by Christopher Reeve in Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman film. For the moment, it’s not clear when (or if) Cavill will step back into his role in the DCEU, but it would be great to see him don a completely different Superman costume in live-action.
The concept design from digital artist Jakub Maslowski on Instagram puts the focus on Henry Cavill as the DCEU’s Superman, but wearing the Christopher Reeve suit instead of the one seen in the Zack Snyder films. Cavill has often been praised as the perfect successor to Reeve by fans, and when seeing him in this costume, it’s easy to see why. You can see Henry Cavill wearing the classic Christopher Reeve Superman costume in the DCEU below.

Henry Cavill’s Superman is set to return in the Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
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.
