A new fan-made poster gives Superman his own "All In" character portrait similar to what Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg officially got for Justice League's latest batch of posters. Technically, the Man of Steel is deemed dead in the existing reality established by DC Films following his self-sacrifice towards the end of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Bruce Wayne is operating on the notion that his newfound friend won't be back to help him protect Earth from the imminent threat that is coming so he decides to recruit a bunch of super skilled people with the assistance of Diana Prince to prepare for an all-out war. Little does he know that Clark will eventually rise from the dead and help them to contain the threat -- the only question is when will he be back?
In light of the nearing roll out of Warner Bros.' first superhero ensemble film, marketing for the project has already been ramped up. However, even at this point in time, Superman still remains to be noticeably absent from any promotional materials for Justice League -- sticking to the premise that Clark is dead. This is despite the fact that we all know that he will eventually join the new squad in fighting off Steppenwolf and his legion of Parademons. Not wanting to be left out on any nifty advertisements for the film, fans from all over the world come up with renders that give the Man of Steel his own share of posters similar to official ones released for the epic blockbuster.
This latest one comes from a regular in putting out great fan-made banners, BossLogic, who posted his creation on his official Twitter account. It features a poster of Superman with the same vibe as the previously released Justice League "All In" character portraits for Batman and the rest of the League. Interestingly, however, instead of the vibrant colors of the hero's costumes used against a black backdrop in the official ones, Clark's takes on a darker palette only illuminated by a glowing red light. This could be a nod to persistent rumors of him coming back donning the famous black suit (perpetuated by his shoulder-length hair) which recently gained more traction thanks to some tie-in merchandise.

Before Superman, BossLogic has also come up with a similar poster featuring Green Lantern (presumably Hal Jordan), which initially made fans wonder why he would get one first before the Kryptonian. Obviously, the intergalactic police heroes are not confirmed by any means in Justice League, but just like Clark's black costume, there have been a lot of speculations regarding one or maybe two of them popping out in the film. Additionally, we know that the Green Lantern Corps. movie is already in development which makes this claim not entirely impossible.
In just six weeks, fans are finally going to be able to see DC's biggest heroes coming together for the first time on the big screen via Justice League. Various promo activities and marketing materials are expected to roll out in the next several weeks as showtime draws near starting with the release of the final trailer for the ensemble film this weekend during New York Comic-Con.
