Will Superman Wear A Gothy Black Costume For Man of Steel 2?
Henry Cavill's Insta just gave us a major hint.
Looks like it’s really happening then! Last week we brought you news that Warner was planning to press ahead with a sequel to Man Of Steel, and now Henry Cavill has followed suit, posting an Instagram pic that hints at a potential new look for everyone’s favourite Kryptonian…
Cavill’s pic shows what looks like the breastplate of the Superman costume, instantly recognisable but for one key detail… this time it’s jet black. Fans of the comics might recall that Supes has rocked the monochrome look once before, in the Reign Of The Supermen arc that saw a quartet of wannabe heroes looking to fill the void following Superman’s ill-fated clash with Doomsday.
Needless to say, it wasn’t too long before the real Superman returned from the grave, a storyline which would appear to match up with the ending of Batman v Superman. Whether or not Cavill stays in the black suit for the entire film (or indeed sports the matching mullet from the comics) remains to be seen, but it certainly looks like his brush with death has got him feeling mean and moody…
No release date has been confirmed as yet, with the next big DC adventure set to be Justice League on November 17 2017.
