The Superman actor teased a darker look for the Man of Steel in Justice League by posting a close-up image on Instagram

Published: Updated:

Man of Steel star Henry Cavill posted a close-up image of a black Superman uniform Monday on Instagram. He’s expected to return in next year’s Justice League.

Cavill’s high-flying superhero (spoiler alert) met his demise at the conclusion of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year.

The last son of Krypton was originally resurrected with a black suit after he was killed off in the comics in 1993.

Cavill wouldn’t be the first Superman actor to sport a black uniform. “Superman Returns” actor Brandon Routh and Lois & Clark co-star Dean Cain also donned dark versions of the traditionally blue, red and yellow ensemble.
