Henry Cavill Hints At Black Suit For Superman In DCEU


By Karen Valenzuela, @VictoriaNoir89


The ending of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice had moviegoers theorizing down many different paths, especially as far as Superman’s fate is concerned. Comic fans and Superman fans alike have been trying to pinpoint where the DC Extended Universe will go. Actor Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in the DCEU, recently released an image on his Instagram of what appears to be his Super suit…but in black.

If you haven’t seen Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and don’t want to be spoiled big time, stop reading! Do not proceed!


Towards the end of the film, we see DC’s Holy Trinity–Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman–band together to fight an insanely overpowered Doomsday and save the world. With the help of Kryptonite, Doomsday is destroyed, but Superman is lost as well. His death unites the world in mourning, while his family and friends (both old and new) have a private funeral for Clark Kent. But when they show us the casket where his body lies, the wood lid starts to rattle, and the dirt around it begins to jump, and finally raise up from the ground by some otherworldly force…A clear hint at Superman’s resurrection.


What will happen as the DCEU proceeds? The next film in the universe will be the highly anticipated Wonder Woman, due in theaters June 2, 2017. But then the first part of Justice League will follow a few months later, slotted for November 17, 2017. Most fans are surmising Superman will make an appearance in the latter.


Many have theorized how Supes will come back. Will he be different? What will the suit look like? Is this going to be a darker Superman? Would it be likely that he’d be exactly the same after dying and coming back to life again?


But Cavill’s Instagram photo of the black Super suit has comic fans wondering if the DCEU is going to be following “Death of Superman”, which was released back in 1992.

If they are following “Death of Superman”, he’ll come back not just with a blacker suit, but also with a darker personality and perhaps even darker intentions. Some say he’ll also have longer hair, so that should be interesting.


As long as they don’t bring back that early 1990s hairdo…
