After a teaser released centering on the Dark Knight, now we have the Man of Steel.

Superman (Henry Cavill) sports his black costume and silver glyph in a new image and short clip released via social media. Cavill was the first member of the Justice League to be cast or appear onscreen, originating his version of Clark Kent in 2013’s The Man of Steel — a movie that enjoyed a virtual screening that proved to be the setting for the Zack Snyder’s Justice League announcement last year. The black costume, of course, also debuted in that film — but only in a dream sequence, first appearing “for real” in the forthcoming release.
The film will spotlight a number of things that were originally planned for Snyder’s two Justice League movies, including Darkseid, Granny Goodness, and other characters from Jack Kirby’s The New Gods. Those characters would have interacted quite a bit more with Superman, had Snyder’s multi-movie arc for the character played out as expected.
