Justice League cinematographer Fabian Wagner confirmed in an email interview that scenes involving Superman in his black suit was deleted in the final cut.
In an e-mail interview with Inverse, cinematographer Fabian Wagner who shot big episodes like ‘Hardhome’ and ‘Battle of the Bastards ’for Game of Thrones said, “There were scenes shot. It’s a cool looking costume. Sadly we didn’t see that either in the final cut.”
Wagner then continued to say that “few scenes” did not make its way to the final Justice League film, clearly hinting that there were quite a few.
“Zack takes his time with telling the stories and I’ve always liked that about his movies. There are a few scenes that I was very much looking forward to seeing which unfortunately got cut,” Wagner said.
Ever since its release, talks of many deleted scenes have been doing the rounds. One or few such scene seems to be that of Superman dressed in black suit. Interestingly, not very long ago, a visual effects artist who had worked on Justice League went on to say that the black suit was never part of the film. However, it seems like Wagner might know a little more.
Besides, way back in August 2016, Henry Cavill had teased a Superman black suit on Instagram while he was shooting for Justice League. Fans were hence certain at the time that they would get to see Superman in a black suit.
The comic book story-lines features the Superman black suit in The Death and Return of Superman narrative.
This was one of the most popular stories in DC history. Zack Snyder had partially and loosely adapted the story-line in his superhero team-up film Justice League. Fans of DC comics were very excited since Superman was only seen in classic red and blue attire until then. Another thing to note is that Superman in the comic book donned a long, jet black hair when he returned. Would that also have been shot in the film? We have no clue!
Let us hope that Warner Bros. includes all the deleted scenes including Superman in black suit on the Blu-ray.
Check out the tweets by reporter Umberto Gonzalez and Jeremy Conrad talking about the Black Superman Suit.
re: Black Superman Suit. So originally when Superman was resurrected, in a chamber his black suit was there on display. He takes a quick at it and that's it. It was supposed to be a cool moment/easter egg for the fans. That was the extent of it.

FYI someone who worked on the movie confirmed your Tweet. Said he actually walked past two suits (including the black one) and they had different cuts where it would just be one of the two suits he saw before cutting it finally out.
