Henry Cavill’s infamous Mission Impossible: Fallout mustache caused a serious problem for the Justice League reshoots, bound by contract, Cavill was unable to shave his mustache. This left the makers of Justice League to have to result in removing Cavill’s mustache digitally. The end result didn’t look great on film, while the mustache was gone, Cavill’s face looked odd, like something was off. Henry Cavill recently spoke with Empire Magazine and discussed the issue, saying he was surprised by the situation.
“When we decided to go for the moustache, I certainly wasn’t expecting all the events to unfold as they were going to unfold. I wasn’t expecting Justice League reshoots to be as extensive as they were. When it came to that, it was one of those things where I’m in the middle of another movie, and to change my look for a movie that should have finished already becomes a real problem. And as you will see when the movie comes out, to have a fake mustache on would not have been a possibility. You’ll think, ‘Okay, yeah, a fake mustache would perhaps have been blown off in this situation.’ Unfortunately, it led to much dismay when Justice League came out, but that’s the nature of these things. You can’t win every time.”
I still think the best option was to have Cavill grow a full beard for the Justice League reshoots. Superman can have a beard right? It certainly would have looked better than what was done with the CGI removal. While it all seemed pretty ridiculous, contracts are contracts. The mustache may have caused more problems for a film’s production than any other non-living object.
