In the shocking finale to Batman V Superman, Superman sacrificed himself to kill Doomsday. While there was a funeral held for the superhero, a final shot which saw dirt rising from his grave hinted that this was not the end for the iconic character.

Now the Man of Steel actor himself, Henry Cavill, has posted this picture, which appears to be a close-up image of an all-black Superman costume:

A number of fan websites have referenced 1992's Death of Superman story arc in the comics as a possible influence that inspired the costume colour change. After the arc, which also saw Superman die in a battle against Doomsday, the Reign of the Supermen storyline saw Superman return, now sporting a black superhero suit.

Other fans have speculated how the costume is very Kryptonian in its design.

So  will Superman have changed when he makes his return in the upcoming Justice League movie? Your guess is as good as ours.
