In the '90s, Clark Kent was famously killed off by the monster Doomsday in the 'Death of Superman' comic story. He came back to life later with a black costume (and a jazzy mullet).
That wasn't to be – but it turns out that scenes were shot with Henry Cavill in his black threads.
Justice League cinematographer Fabian Wagner has confirmed that the alternate costume was cut from the movie.
"There were [scenes shot]," he told Inverse. "It's a cool looking costume. Sadly, we didn't see that either in the final cut."
He added that "quite a few scenes" were deleted. This may be due to the reshoots made by Joss Whedon after he stepped in to replace Zack Snyder as director.
The trailers revealed other deleted scenes relating to Superman – including a moment in which Alfred (Jeremy Irons) looked up and said, "They said you'd come. Let's hope you're not too late" – presumably speaking to the Man of Steel.
As far as we know, the mullet was never considered for the movie.
Justice League is out in cinemas now. Pre-order the DVD or Blu-ray here.
