The marketing for Zack Snyder's Justice League is now in full swing, considering that it's only weeks away from its much-anticipated arrival on HBO Max. For the most part, Snyder has been at the forefront when it comes to promoting his version of the film , releasing several tidbits about the main differences of his cut to that of the theatrical version that was released back in 2017.

One of the key reveals about the Snyder Cut is Superman's black suit. The new costume of the Man of Steel has been a major part of the film's promotional efforts thus far, with Snyder even admitting that the suit serves as a “great time delineator” for the DCEU.

In addition, the black suit was also the main focus of the first official clip from Zack Snyder's Justice League . Now, it appears that the iconic garb will also serve as an integral part of the film's merchandise.

It's no secret that Superman will have a much more compelling arc in Zack Snyder's Justice League than his somewhat disappointing outing in the theatrical version. It's safe to say that the black suit will be an integral driving force of the character's journey in the film, and this latest merchandise should serve as a reminder of that.

While Henry Cavill's DCEU future as Superman is unknown, the Snyder Cut is poised to give him a good amount of screen time that could reinvent the character in a multitude of ways. Based on previous information, it's safe to say that his resurrection in the film will be done differently, and it will be interesting to find out how Snyder will handle that plot point.

On top of that, Clark Kent's choice of opting to go with the black suit is another exciting thing to discover in Justice League , considering the fact that there is always a deeper meaning behind character's decisions in Snyder's vision.

All in all, fans have waited for a long time to finally see Superman don his black suit in a live-action setting, and they will be given the chance to witness that when Zack Snyder's Justice League arrives on HBO Max on March 18.
