Justice League is still a few months out, but Warner Bros. is ramping up the film's promos. San Diego Comic Con came around in July with a brand-new trailer, and several promo images for the blockbuster have debuted since. However, none of the releases has made fans as hyped as a new Superman spot.
A new promo of Superman began floating around social media on sites like Reddit. The picture, which can be seen below, shows an up-close photo of Henry Cavill's Superman. The character is suited up in his bright blue-and-red suit that comes complete with ribbing over the torso. Superman is seen staring off into the distance as he pulls back for a punch, and his slicked-back hair looks noticeably fuller than it did back in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
The new picture doesn't reveal any major details about Superman's return in Justice League, but it is enough to get fans hype. The hero has been persistently absent from the film's trailers and TV spots, so fans are taking what they get of the Kryptonian.
Fans know Cavill is involved with Justice League, but the actor's lack of promotions is getting some comic lovers antsy. The star failed to make an appearance at SDCC, but Cavill did comment on his character's absence in Justice League. Over on Instagram, the actor shared the film's latest trailer with the caption, "All in! Well, almost," in reference to its lack of Superman.
The hero may have been absent at the annual convention, but Cavill's co-stars did talk about Superman during Warner Bros.'s panel. Cast members like Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa took to the stage at Hall H to answer fan questions, and the Wonder Woman star had this to say:
"We can't say much, but if you're a big fan of Superman you're going to love Justice League."
Later, Momoa appeared to sabotage Gadot's efforts when he told a young fan Superman was dead, but the actor did not stop there. Video footage caught Momoa talking with the boy a bit later as he reassured the kid his favorite superhero was just fine.
"Don't worry, he's still alive, okay? Don't worry," Momoa explained, and the whole DC fandom let out a sigh of relief.
For now, fans will have to wait a bit longer to see any footage of Superman in action. Warner Bros. may very well try to keep the hero's comeback a secret until Justice League debuts, so promotional images like this may be all the proof audiences get until November. So, if you are feeling sentimental, you might want to save this stunning character promo to your desktop.
