The image shows the black suit’s similarity to Superman’s iconic red and blue one in the movies, with small “Kyrptonian” symbols laced into the material. Cavill captioned the image simply, “#Superman.” According to Nerdist, the black suit in the comic books was a “regeneration outfit, which drew solar energy to slowly bring Kal-El [Superman] back to the land of the living.” Cavill’s Superman “died” at the hands of Doomsday earlier this year in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the final scene revealed dirt lifting off Superman’s coffin just before cutting to the credits. So, there was little speculation as to whether the hero was actually dead, and more curiosity surrounding when exactly he would make his return, either in Justice League, or the currently untitled “Justice League 2.” Justice League and presumably Superman’s black suit will hit theaters Nov. 17, 2017.
