When returning to the Justice League sets for reshoots, Henry Cavill was sporting a mustache for another film he was working on, Mission Impossible 6. The timing of the reshoots forced Cavill to move between the projects, and the mustache had to be digitally removed in post production. In speaking with Empire Magazine, Cavill’s Justice League co-star, Ben Affleck, gave his candid thoughts on Superman’s facial hair:

“It was a full-on porn star moustache. He looked like a porn star from the ’70s, just with a better body. It’s a different twist on Superman.” 

Love or hate it, CGI was put to some pretty good use here. We just can’t have a Superman flying around with a sweet ‘stache, the aerodynamic adjustments alone would prove too burdensome. DC has enough troubles without portraying Superman as an adult film star. Justice League is just over a month and a half away, and DC hopes to build off of the success of Wonder Woman. We have seen DC make several adjustments to the film including Cyborg’s tone and bringing in Joss Whedon to take over for Zack Snyder.

Justice League hits theaters November 17.

    Wouldn’t it have been easier and cheaper to buy him a fake mustache?

    All I can say is….Supes with a mustache is where the DCEU is headed. WW was pretty good but all the trailers for JL look horrible. I really do have high hopes but it looks like BvS to me!

      I think Supes with a mustache gives him a working class hero vibe, like his secret identity is a forklift operator, or a firetruck driver….

        He should also have bushy sideburns and a tiny bowler hat – Hipster Superman!

    so noone is denying Superman is in the Movie anymore… hahahaha so much for a Big Reveal… keep it a secret… dont keep it a secret… its not a secret… keep it a secret cause we’re gonna surprise everyone when he shoes up in a trailer or in the movie or what ever… he’s not dead… the surprise factor died at the end of BvS… pish posh…

      “so noone is denying Superman is in the Movie anymore..”

      Noone ever denied Superman was in this movie, what are you talking about. They just didn’t throw him into the promo material. If you’re gonna pick fault with the movie prior to its release, there’s more than enough real stuff to select rather than trying to drum up fake stuff.

        Dude… everyone knows Superman will be in the movie… but earlier when BvS premiered the big question press were asking Zack Snyder was will Superman be in Justice League… Snyder the Cast and even Cavill himself wouldnt give a straight answer of “Yes… Superman will be in JL”… everyone was playing Coy like its suppose to be some big reveal…

        Everyone assumes hes gonna be back because of a floating speck of dust on supermans coffins… but noone was given a straight answer…

        Flash forward a year… and non of the trailers or videos show Cavill…

        And now.. in an interview… cavill is on set with a moustache…

        Marketing is not so great when it comes to JL…

  • hrjoe

    It’s a symbol of hope…

    basically it’s Kirkman’s Invincible.

    Hahahaaa!! We live in a world where they’d rather digitally remove his real mustache rather than shave it off and give him a fake one…..Hollywood logic…
