Henry Cavill’s scenes as Superman, wearing his iconic black suit from the comics, were cut from the theatrical cut of Justice League.
Cinematographer Fabian Wagner said that scenes featuring Superman wearing his black suit were removed for the final cut of the film.
“There were [scenes shot],” Wagner said. “It’s a cool looking costume. Sadly, we didn’t see that either in the final cut.”
In Batman v Superman, Superman was killed by Doomsday and fans expected to see the black version of the suit after the resurrection of the Man of Steel in Justice League. Tie-in merchandise with the black suit was produced and Cavill even posted pictures with the black suit on Instagram during filming.
Wagner says “quite a few scenes” didn’t make the final cut, not just the black suited Superman. “Zack takes his time with telling the stories, and I’ve always liked that about his movies. There are a few scenes that I was very much looking forward to seeing which unfortunately got cut.”
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne 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.
