Justice League: Is This Our First Look at Superman's Black Costume?

More than five months after Henry Cavill teased the appearance of the Man of Steel's black suit in "Justice League," a purported leaked photo may provide the first look at the costume.

The image, spotted by CinemasComics, in a blurry, low-quality scan, which makes judging its authenticity that much more difficult. While the cape certainly seems to be black or gray, the suit itself definitely has some blue hues, which doesn't exactly jibe with the detail Cavill revealed in August. The actor's pose in the image is fairly generic, so there's no dead giveaway that it's a doctored shot from "Man of Steel" or "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." That said, it could very well be the handiwork of a prankster. Or, y'know, Lex Luthor.

The black costume debuted in DC Comics' sweeping 1992-93 storyline "The Death and Return of Superman," elements of which played out in last year's "Batman v Superman," where the Man of Steel seemingly met his end in a battle with Doomsday, and will continue this year in "Justice League."

Director Zack Snyder joked last summer that Superman's return in the ensemble film might remain faithful to certain elements of the 1990s mega-arc, in which the Last Son of Krypton returned sporting what's widely characterized as a mullet. “[His hair] should be perfect," he said. "A little longer, I guess! That’s what the myths are anyway.”

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, in “Justice League” Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes, it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Opening Nov. 17, “Justice League” stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Raymond Fisher as Cyborg, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Amber Heard as Mera and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
