A cool new piece of fan art shows Justice League star Henry Cavill with the Injustice Superman suit, giving him an alternative look compared to his previous incarnations in the DC Extended Universe.
Henry Cavill has portrayed Superman in three different DC Extended Universe movies — Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. His future as Superman is currently in question given previous reports claiming he has departed the role as well as his busy schedule as the star of Netflix’s highly-anticipated adaptation of The Witcher.
However, fans of the DCEU have remained hopeful in Henry Cavill remaining as the Last Son of Krypton, with many still using the Justice League actor’s likeness in their own artwork depicting him in different Superman suits. Check out the newst one from digital artist Mizuri below.
Henry Cavill reportedly still wants to play Superman although the actor himself has been rather ambiguous regarding his return as the Man of Steel. Henry Cavill has said that he would still like to play Superman again but he, unfortunately, has no deal to return in place. Last year, Henry Cavill walked away from negotiations to return for a cameo in Zachary Levi’s Shazam! only for his version of Superman to still be featured in the movie. Shazam! was able to get away with the lack of Henry Cavill’s presence by simply not showing Superman’s face during his cameo.
The jury is still out on whether we will see Henry Cavill as Superman along with the Justice League ever again. But if he were to return, Justice League indicates that Superman would be portrayed in a more hopeful and optimistic tone compared to the darker take seen in previous films.

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.
