Cavill's high-flying superhero (spoiler alert) met his demise at the conclusion of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year.

The last son of Krypton was originally resurrected with a black suit after he was killed off in the comics in 1993.

Cavill wouldn't be the first Superman actor to sport a black uniform. Superman Returns actor Brandon Routh and Lois & Clark co-star Dean Cain also donned dark versions of the traditionally blue, red and yellow ensemble.

Justice League will unite Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg.
