An awesome new concept pictures Henry Cavill with the Superman suit from the recently-released animated film Justice League Dark: Apokolips War.
Although fans are excited to see Henry Cavill’s Superman in the Zack Snyder cut of Justice League, one digital artist recently took to Instagram to reveal what the Britisha ctor would look like if he donned the costume from the DC Animated Movie Universe project Justice League Dark: Apokolips War. The animated film sees the titular team go up against Darkseid and later the remaining heroes struggle to deal with a crushing defeat. It’s safe to say that Jerry O’Connell’s Superman has a unique character arc in Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, along with an iconic costume.
Henry Cavill’s Superman steps into the Justice League Dark outfit thanks to an artist known as ‘jscomicart’ on Instagram. The artwork sees Cavill wearing the smaller ‘S’ symbol, and it also adds in the red and gold belt design. The Apokolips War suit also gives the Superman actor the pointed red cuffs on his sleeves, adding an extra splash of color to the Kryptonian hero. The ruined background alongside Superman’s expression even tease what a live-action version of the animated film could look like. After all, J.J. Abrams is developing a Justice League Dark series for HBO Max, so there’s always a chance that we could see something similar on the big screen. Take a look at the fan edit below.

Here is the official synopsis for Apokolips War:
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War features the largest Super Hero cast in the history of DC Universe Movies with dozens of actors/characters spotlighted in a grand ensemble of talent reprising their roles from this six-year story continuum. Matt Ryan (Legends of Tomorrow, Constantine), Jerry O’Connell (Carter, Bravo’s Play by Play, Stand by Me) and Taissa Farmiga (The Nun, The Mule, American Horror Story) anchor the cast as Constantine, Superman and Raven, respectively – the triumvirate determined to assemble the forces necessary to lead humanity’s final attack.
Alongside that trio are the long-running core of Justice League voices — Jason O’Mara (The Man in the High Castle, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Batman, Rosario Dawson (Briar Patch, Daredevil, Sin City) as Wonder Woman, Shemar Moore (S.W.A.T., Criminal Minds) as Cyborg and Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs, Insatiable, Ugly Betty) as The Flash – as well as JL-adjacents Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Rainn Wilson (The Office, The Meg) as the voices of Lois Lane and Lex Luthor, respectively.
