The photo is likely referencing the costume that debuted after the “Death of Superman” storyline in the comics, which saw the Man of Steel killed at the hands of Doomsday — just as he was in “Batman v Superman.” Dan Jurgens created the suit upon the character’s revival for “Return of Superman.”
“Justice League” director Zack Snyder previously expressed interest in having Superman rock the long-haired look — which made its debut with the black costume — so it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to predict the classic Superman look making an appearance (in some form) as a nod to the comics.
