Possible Spoilers ahead for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
After Superman's apparent death at the hands of Doomsday in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it was inevitable that he'd return - especially considering Henry Cavill's Man of Steel is still billed as part of the cinematic Justice League. Now, Cavill has teased that Superman's return may hew closer to its comic book roots than previously thought.

Posted on Cavill's Instagram, the image appears to be a close up of a black version of his Superman suit, which has a unique texture meant to mimic Kryptonian patterns. If that's what we're looking at, it could signal that Superman will wear a version of his black suit from the "Death of Superman" and "Return of Superman" stories.
The black suit was of Kryptonian design, and helped supercharge his cells with solar energy to repower Superman on his return.
No word if Cavill will also sport Superman's much-maligned mullet from the same time period.
