If you've been following Bleeding Cool, you know that we've been following superstar artist Greg Capullo on Instagram and turning his posts of artwork for the upcoming Dark Nights: Metal super-mega-crossover event into news article. So far, we've seen some glimpses of Wonder Woman, including one revealing her new costume for the event. But yesterday, Capullo posted a full color image featuring The Flash, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Aquaman, standing triumphant over what appears to be defeated alien foes or monsters in a gladiatorial arena. Check out Capullo's Instagram post below:
It looks pretty clear at this point that the armor worn by the Justice League here will be temporary for the event (or maybe even just for this scene), and not a permanent costume change as some sites speculated after seeing Wonder Woman's new costume. But we still have no idea what the meaning of the snake is.
Dark Nights: Metal will lead the DC Universe into Dark Matter, as foretold by renowned prophet Danstrodidimos, who said, "First Comes The Dark Days, Which Gives Way To The Dark Nights, Which Gives Birth To The Dark Matter."
Dark Nights: Metal kicks off in August.
