Confirmed: Henry Shot 'Justice League' Scenes In Black Suit

It was the picture that launched a thousand theories. Back in August of 2016, Henry was in the middle of filming Justice League when he shared this cryptic photo of the Superman suit.

Fans debated for months whether it was the "black suit" or if he had just used a filter... now we finally have the answer. Cinematographer Fabian Wagner has just confirmed to Inverse that Henry did in fact shoot scenes in that black suit:

“There were [scenes shot] (..) “It’s a cool looking costume. Sadly, we didn’t see that either in the final cut.”

During the promo tour for the film, Henry was asked about the suit and the pic he posted and he neither confirmed or denied that he had worn it... keeping everyone guessing just a little longer (2:04).

Of course now we all know it never made it to the big screen. As much as we really did like the version of Supes that ended up in theaters, it's also a bit heartbreaking to think of what could have been.

Maybe one day that Justice League footage sees the light of day.
