LOS ANGELES – Superman will apparently be back in black.

Man of Steel star Henry Cavill posted a close-up image of a black Superman uniform Monday on Instagram. He’s expected to return in next year’s Justice League.

Cavill’s high-flying superhero – spoiler alert – met his demise at the conclusion of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice earlier this year.
