Fans and entertainment websites spent the better part of two years scouring everything from merchandising leaks to Henry Cavill's social-media account in search of confirmation that Superman's black costume would appear in Justice League. Although it didn't make the film's final cut, cinematographer Fabian Wagner confirmed in December that Zack Snyder did indeed shoot scenes featuring the suit before stepping aside in the wake of a family tragedy. Now, just days before Justice League's digital release, we finally get a peek at those threads, made famous by DC's "Death and Return of Superman."
Brazilian website Legião dos Heróis has debuted footage from the deleted scene, which depicts a newly revived Kal-El strolling through the Kryptonian, looking for a costume. You'll note that Cavill's face shows no telltale signs of the digital removal of his mustache, suggesting this sequence was shot by Snyder, and not Joss Whedon.
“There were [scenes shot],” Wagner said in December, referring to the black suit. “It’s a cool-looking costume. Sadly, we didn’t see that either in the final cut.”
Arriving Feb. 13 on digital HD and March 13 on Blu-ray and DVD, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
