Henry Cavill strikes a classic Superman pose as the Justice League star dons a New 52-inspired suit in this awesome new image.
Man of Steel introduced Henry Cavill’s Superman to audiences with a darker red and blue outfit than previous incarnations of the DC Comics superhero. Since the release of the film, fans have taken it upon themselves to imagine what Henry Cavill’s Superman could have looked like in various costumes from the hero’s comic book history.
Thanks to a new piece by Jackson Caspersz, we can see what Henry Cavill’s Superman would have looked like with the New 52 version of the character’s costume. The fan-made image features Henry Cavill’s Superman in the classic superhero landing pose on the streets of Metropolis.

Henry Cavill reportedly still wants to play Superman although he has been rather ambiguous regarding his future as the character. The 36-year-old actor has even said that he wants to return as Superman, but he has no deal to do so in place. Last year, Henry Cavill walked away from negotiations to reprise his role for a cameo in Zachary Levi’s first cinematic solo outing as Shazam only for his character to still be featured in the final scene of the movie. Shazam! was able to get away with the lack of Henry Cavill’s presence by simply not showing Superman’s face during his cameo.
For now, Henry Cavill will trade in his Superman suit for the lead role in Netflix’s highly-anticipated adaptation of The Witcher. Rumors have also suggested that Warner Bros. will be focusing on Supergirl in the DCEU going forward instead of Superman. 22 Jump Street scribe Oren Uziel is writing the script for the Supergirl film which will be an origin story for Kara Zor-El.
Henry Cavill most recently portrayed Superman in 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 the latest news on Henry Cavill and Superman’s DC Extended Universe future.
