DC’s Justice League movie was overshadowed quite a bit by Joss Whedon taking over as director, the drama of Henry Cavill not being allowed to shave his moustache for the reshoots, and the dodgy CGI employed to digitally remove it.
If you find it hard to believe that the movie studios made such a kerfuffle over some facial fur, then imagine how it feels for the Mission: Impossible – Fallout star.
“I was slightly surprised,” Cavill told Empire magazine. “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 moustache on would not have been a possibility. You’ll think, ‘Okay, yeah, a fake moustache 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.”
The Superman actor recently joked that he was glad his ‘tache was “world-changing”.
You can see Henry Cavill and all his moustachioed glory in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which releases in cinemas on July 26.
