Did Henry Cavill Just Reveal a Major Superman Plot Point From ‘Justice League’?

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” actor drops a heavy hint on social media

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you haven’t watched “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”)

When Superman died at the end of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” we were led to believe that the Man of Steel was not really dead. A small teaser at the very end of the movie showed there was still life inside of his grave as the dirt on top of Superman’s casket rose.

With “Justice League” coming out next year and Superman apparently “dead,” fanboys are wondering just how the filmmakers are going to bring their hero back.

After all, how dead can Superman be considering the fact we exclusively broke the story last week that his standalone film is actively being developed?  The studio can’t really put that movie into production with a dead Superman …

Rumors circulated on fanboy blogs that Henry Cavill would be sporting a black Superman outfit instead of his classic blue Superman costume in the upcoming film.

During the “Reign of the Supermen” comic story-line, Superman returns after Doomsday killed him in the “Death of Superman” comic story arc. However, he comes back sporting a black Superman suit.

It looks as if Cavill has teased that they may be going the same route in “Justice League.”

He posted the first image to Instagram of what appears to be the black Superman suit he might be wearing in “Justice League.” The image is close up, so you can’t see much, but the design is very Kryptonian.

Check it out it out below.
