Justice League: Zack Snyder Reveals Why Superman Didn’t Wear Black Suit In Knightmare Scene

Zack Snyder’s Justice League aka Snyder Cut finally released last week. The fans have fought a huge battle online to make sure they get to see the vision of their favourite director. The film starred Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.

The 4-hour film released on HBO Max and the Indian audience watched it on Book My Stream, Hungama Play and Apple TV. Fans couldn’t stop raving about the detailing in Zack’s film and the prominence he gave to every character’s story. Another factor they loved in the Snyder Cut is Darkseid’s presence and Steppenwolf’s avatar.

In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, people got to see Henry Cavill’s Superman finally wearing a black suit. When the third mother box is used to bring back Clark Kent, he dons the black suit instead of the red and blue to fight against Steppenwolf and his army. However, that’s not the case in the Knightmare scene.

In the last 20 minutes of the film, we see Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne aka Batman having a nightmare which is called the ‘Knightmare’ scene. In this scene, Batman interacts with Joker and sees another possibility of fighting the dark forces where many important characters die along with Superman’s lover, Louis Lane. As the nightmare is about to end, Cavill’s character makes an entry wearing a red and blue suit instead of black.

After watching Justice League, a lot of fans were baffled about the change in the colour of Superman’s suit. Well, Zack Snyder has finally answered your query. In an interaction with Cinemabland, when Zack was asked about the reason for the change in Superman’s suit colour, he says that by that time, he ditches black suit as he succumbs to the controlling power of the mother box and anti-life equation. He also goes in control of Darkseid.

The director also explained the timeline for the Knightmare scene. Zack Snyder says, “The actual full fall of Earth is maybe a year or two later [after Justice League]. And maybe longer, I don’t know. Not 10 years, probably not five years, but somewhere [around a year or two]. They’ve been on the lamb for a while. Because you can imagine that [it’s been] long enough where they’ve sort taken their eye off the Batcave as a place that they might be.

Snyder’s Justice League was going to give us a whole universe with the same characters which the fans call Snyderverse. As things didn’t pan out the way they should have, no sequels are happening anymore. But fans really want Zack to make it happen. They are trending the hashtag #RestoreTheSnyderverse and requesting HBO Max to make it happen.

Zack Snyder recently said that he does not want to make any other comic book movie. So only time will tell if he changes his mind and Snyderverse becomes a reality or not!
