It’s been rumored for some time now that we could possibly see Henry Cavill’s Superman return with a black suit, but never confirmed. We’re yet to even see the character return in any of the footage from Justice League that has been released so far.
Well, now, a new rumor suggests that is about to change, as the next trailer will feature the character – black suit, beard and all (thanks to We Got This Covered for the transcription):
The preview starts with the same footage of Batman recruiting flash, then logos(including the new DC logo). we cut to a montage of the team. Bruce talking to Diana at some kind of museum. Cyborg looking depressed as he walks through the hall of a high school(apparently we see him use some kind of holographic projection to blend in) with voice over from Victor saying ”I never asked for this. I didn’t want to be some thing.”
We then see aquaman in atlantis(apparently resembles castle ruins), talking with Vulko(william dafoe) about his destiny. We see a motherbox being guarded by atlantian soldiers when out of nowhere there’s an attack. Steppenwolf takes the motherbox, aquaman swims after him, steppenwolf throws his axe at aquaman & in slow motion arthur dodges it.
we cut to Batman, WW, Flash & Cyborg being overwhelmed by parademons in some kind of tunnel, the tunnel floods and Aquaman shows up to save the team. We get the ”dressed like a bat, I dig it” then Aquaman asks Batman for help. We cut to the team entering the batcave as Flash geeks out. voice over from Batman about the parademons(referred to them as creatures) kidnapping scientists. WW asks what’s the plan as Flash asks Alfred for some service, Alfred walks off.
Montage of action(slow mo shot of WW falling while trying to reach her sword as flash tips it with his finger so she can grab it, cyborg punches Aquaman as Aquaman throws him against the wall as the shot transitions into Aquaman throwing Bruce against the wall, Aquaman ww & flash guarding what appears to be the scout ship, Batman gliding into a parademon, Steppenwolf stepping on WW’s chest, Cyborg standing on a football field).
Flash then makes a joke about Cyborg looking like the tin man. After the JL title card we get the money shot. Batman is driving towards some kind of ship when Superman in the black suit,beard & mullet lands right in front of it, red eyes and an evil smirk(fire in the background, raining ash, great visual shot) while Batman has a look of ”oh shit” as the trailer ends.
There was a “leaked” picture featuring the actor sporting the black suit a couple months back:

Nothing official has been released so far – though, Henry Cavill has teased the suit in the past:
To say that you should take this with a grain of salt is a massive understatement. It all sounds cool, though – as is the case with most of these rumors.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s (Henry Cavill) selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League hits theaters November 17th.
