Zack Snyder Confirms Symbolism of Justice League's Superman Deleted Scene

More than three months after its theatrical premiere, Justice League continues to spur discussion, and speculation. On Sunday, director Zack Snyder confirmed one fan's theory about the symbolism of the deleted scene depicting Superman's black suit, featured on the film's digital release.

The sequences features Henry Cavill as a recently resurrected Clark Kent roaming the halls of his Kryptonian spaceship, past potential new costumes. Most notably, Clark strolls by a black version of his Superman suit, before opting to go for the more classic and colorful outfit he dons for the final confrontation.


The fan theorized that Superman's choice was a callback to a line spoken by Jor-El in Snyder's Man of Steel. On the social media platform Vero, the director responded, confirming the theory. In fact, he added even more, saying "now in one sense he has been born twice, once on Krypton once on Earth, and it is this reality that he now is starkly aware of as he moves through the ship."
