A fan-made poster for Justice League presents a new take on Superman’s black suit. While Batman is busy recruiting his new superfriends (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg) to safeguard the Earth against Steppenwolf, Superman is nowhere to be found. Presumed dead, the Man of Steel is expected to rise from is grave and, eventually, join the team.

How is a different matter. Warner Bros. are keeping the cards close to their chest, with Superman barely in the marketing. One popular theory is that he’ll return a la The Return of Superman comic on which his DCEU arc is based with a mullet and a black version of his iconic red-and-blue costume. This has been teased by Justice League merchandise and already inspired some unofficial renditions from fans. The newest take on the matter, however, adds a new twist to it as it double downs not just on the aesthetic change but the potential allegiance switch for the superhero.

The fresh artwork comes from Gabriel Rock, who posted his creation on Instagram. The iconic black suit is often attached to the Kryptonian taking a more ruthless and grim persona, opposite of him being a beacon of light and hope. While other renditions of the concept focus mainly on the suit itself, this latest one adds a different spin to it by featuring Superman donning the dark costume but still holding his usual red cape to the side, almost as if he is ready to let go of it.

While we do know that he will eventually emerge from the grave, it is uncertain just how much Superman will factor in Justice League‘s main storyline. It would be a disservice to the fans to not let him join Batman and the rest towards the movie’s climactic battler against Steppenwolf, but the events leading to that could be far more complex than him just rejoining the newly found team.

It won’t be long until we find out about the catch regarding Superman’s return – and every other DCEU mystery – in Justice League as the film is only less two months away from hitting theaters. It’s no secret that the ensemble production has undergone some major snags from numerous rewrite rumors and Zack Snyder stepping down to Joss Whedon supposedly doing extensive reshoots. That said, the film is still generating great buzz from fans as it is dubbed as one of the most anticipated films coming out this fall.
