Upon rewatching Justice League, a fan recently stumbled on a neat thematic connection within the movie by Zack Snyder.
Nick Albright took to Twitter recently to point out something from a recently deleted scene from the film featuring Superman’s iconic black suit. It would appear that this scene was placed into the film to serve as more than just a callback to get fans watering at the mouth. It wasn’t just a fan theory like some had stated with director Zack Snyder recently replying to confirm it’s validity.

Albright cites a specific moment from 2013’s Man of Steel in which Jonathan Kent gives some words of encouragement to a young Clark Kent before he dawned his cape.
All these changes that you’re going through, one day… one day you’re gonna think of them as a blessing; and when that day comes, you’re gonna have to make a choice… a choice of whether to stand proud in front of the human race or not.
The recently released deleted scene from Justice League features Superman walking through a hall containing several different costumes, including the black suit. After returning from the grave he makes the choice to keep his classic blue-and-red threads. This is supposed to symbolize that he will continue to be the Superman we know from previous films, and perhaps the more hopeful one we would get a few scenes later. Snyder’s intentions to include this scene is an amazing way to conclude a three film story arc for the character which started with Man of Steel.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Amber Heard, Jeremy Irons, J.K. Simmons, Connie Nielsen, Julian Lewis Jones and Ciarán Hinds. Justice League is now available on Digital HD and will be released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, and DVD on March 13th.
