A new design shows Christopher Reeve donning a black Superman suit inspired by his classic look from the 1978 film.
While the internet was recently in a frenzy at the official footage of Henry Cavill wearing the black suit in the Snyder Cut, a new design imagines what Christopher Reeve’s Superman could’ve looked like if he had a similar arc back in the franchise which started in 1978. Fans are understandably excited about all the new footage included in Justice League when it arrives on HBO Max next year, and hopefully the black suit gets plenty of screen-time.
The new design from ‘jscomicart’ on Instagram takes a shot of Christopher Reeve in his classic Superman costume and reimagines it into the black, gray and white look for the Kryptonian. The bulk of his costume is jet black, while his iconic cape is gray to match the darker version of his chest symbol. The design also gives the Christopher Reeve Superman a completely white belt to replace the usual yellow look – and it contrasts quite well. Take a look at the classic black suit Superman art below.

Other DC projects currently in development at Warner Bros. include The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, The Suicide Squad, and Shazam! 2. Meanwhile, Cavill can be as Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the Justice League 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.
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.
