Fans of the series know Henry Cavill is expected to reprise his role as the Man of Steel next year. So, when the actor posted a cryptic image of what looked like intricately designed fabric to Instagram, fans immediately wondered whether the picture could possibly be a glimpse of the iconic black Superman suit.
Cavill's photo was posted without much caption other than #Superman.
The image is so zoomed in that it's hard to tell what part of the suit it might be.
Some fans were beyond excited, but a lot just found ways to poke fun.
