'Justice League' cinematographer confirms Superman black suit scenes were shot and cut

'Justice League' cinematographer confirms Superman black suit scenes were shot and cut”

File under "Yet another instance proving that studio suits needed to butt out and let Zack Snyder do his thing".

"It's a cool looking costume", Wagner said. It certainly won't reach Batman vs. Superman's number of $873 million and foreign take is far less than domestic earnings - but it's still safe to say China may have saved Justice League from a big embarrassment.

"There were scenes shot. Sadly, we didn't see that either in the final cut".

If you're scratching your head, allow me to give you a brief recap.

Justice League hasn't been performing well at its domestic box office, the high profile superhero blockbuster is now tracking $100 million behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and over $50 million behind the DCEU's lowest grosser, Man of Steel (via box office mojo). We only ever see Superman wearing the familiar blue, red and yellow version... a brighter version, but definitely not black and silver.

Seeing as the DC Extended Universe killed Superman on screen, some fans hoped Snyder would use the black suit, especially with Cavill teasing it on his Instagram.

Its exclusion is very disappointing.

When compared to the past DC films, JL seems to go only backward from here as it may end up earning even below or at par with 2013's Man of Steel! "There are a few scenes that I was very much looking forward to seeing which unfortunately got cut", he added, also referencing the scene from trailers where Alfred spoke to a mysterious character that we never got to see in the film.

Wagner is fairly clear about this in an interview with Inverse, responding to a question regarding whether or not scenes were shot involving the black suit with a simple answer: "There were". "It was one of my favorites, and also didn't make it".
