"Justice League" to Deny Us the Cavill-stache

Chris here. Depending on which report you believe, Justice League has been in nearly constant state of filming since production initially wrapped. But the latest bit of news out of a new batch of reshoots has the superhero tentpole going too far - Justice League will digitally erase Henry Cavill's mustache.

Think of all the possibilities that we are being denied with this false CGI smoothness aside from a change of pace for the squeaky clean hero! Evil Superman, Euro-Superman, Tom-Selleck-Tribute-Superman. Jokes aside it is an odd sort of digital trickery and another level to the ongoing saga of this tentpole's preproduction. (But reminder: the goal of all reshoots is to make a movie better!)

This is also an interesting tidbit to emerge considering that Warner Bros. has been dancing around admitting that Superman will return from the dead in some form (that new poster out of Comic Con has Supes' logo though he is nowhere in the actual lineup). The practical reason is that Cavill will be back and forth between Superman duties and the next Mission: Impossible. What are the odds on the Cavill-stache being one of the best M:I stunts?

Would you keep or CGI out the Superstache?

Moustaches are so temperamental. even on the same person they can look bad or great. Photos of Cavill with the superman haircut and that stache look ultra stupid. And yet with this windswept aviator hair it looks great.

in short I am anti-moustache because they just dont have any consistency and look stupid more often than not.

My wife is a BIG Henry Cavill fan, and she thinks this mustache is a crime against humanity.

Nathaniel - and I'd argue Cavill could use some of the levity a stupid look would allow lol

He should be doing adult entertainment.
