JUSTICE LEAGUE Leaked Photos Show More Of Henry Cavill's Superman Mustache From Reshoots
Henry Cavill was forced to reshoot Superman's scenes with his Mission: Impossible - Fallout mustache, and new leaked photos reveal what the Man of Steel looks like with facial hair. It ain't pretty!
When Joss Whedon decided to reshoot almost the entirety of Justice League, he found himself facing at least one major issue: Henry Cavill's mustache. The British actor was in the midst of filming Mission: Impossible - Fallout, and Paramount Pictures was understandably (unreasonably?) unwilling to interrupt that production by allowing Cavill to shave off his facial hair.
That meant these additional scenes for the DC film would need to be shot with Cavill suited up as Superman...with a mustache. Rather than using VFX to give the Man of Steel a beard - something there's precedent for in the comics - he was instead fitted with a CGI jaw which has been a subject of ridicule since 2017.
Poor Cavill looked ridiculous, and it was impossible not to be distracted by Superman's weird mouth or Joker-like grin while chatting to Lois Lane.
More leaked behind-the-scenes photos have surfaced today, revealing what Cavill looked like on set with his mustache. If we're being honest, he looks better with this facial hair than he did with his fake jaw, and we will honestly never understand why Warner Bros. thought this was a good idea.
Thankfully, Cavill's original Superman performance will be seen in Zack Snyder's Justice League.
