When the first complete trailer for "Justice League" was released in March, many questioned the whereabouts of Henry Cavill's Superman, who met his untimely death in "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice." While the character is presumed to be dead, the end of the film implied that he may be still alive or will be resurrected somehow. Also, it was no question as to whether he will appear in "Justice League," as he is supposedly one of the founding members of the team, alongside Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. Fans need not wonder anymore, as Superman is confirmed in a new promo photo for "Justice League." He might even play the villain in the highly anticipated film.

New '#jointheleague' poster revealed, features six heroes

According to Screenrant, the new poster came via Rubies, a site where fans can purchase officially licensed DC Comics costumes. The site recently uploaded the poster, which features Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, and right in the middle, Superman. Zack Snyder remained coy about the role that Superman will play in the upcoming "Justice League," choosing not to include the hero in the first trailer for the film.

"It was always a super-intriguing concept to...have him make that sacrifice, [to] be the why of Justice League," Snyder explained in March, as per Collider. "It’s fun for us, but it’ll be interesting for audiences what we do with him."

Superman might play the villain in 'Justice League.'

One of the most common themes in recent films is hero-turned-villain.

Take for example Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War," which pitted Iron Man and Captain America against each other. "Justice League"'s predecessor, "Batman v Superman" used the same formula, as well as this year's "Fate of the Furious." It will come as no surprise if DC decides to reuse the formula for the upcoming "Justice League."

The Verge gives a viable explanation for the evil Superman storyline, which is supported by a photo that Henry Cavill himself posted on Instagram. He shared a close-up shot of his Superman costume, which this time came in black, hinting at a possible significant change concerning his character.

According to The Verge's Chaim Gartenberg, the DCEU films "have been telling us that Superman is destined for a heel turn for basically the entirety of their existence. 'Man of Steel' posits that Superman is capable of visiting untold destruction upon humanity. 'Batman v Superman's" central conflict is about whether or not that’s true, and what should be done about it. A 'Justice League' where Superman finally does go bad would serve as a fitting cap to that arc."
