When you’re the world’s biggest superhero, people seem to know everything about you. Henry Cavill, who portrays Superman in the upcoming Justice League and other connected DCEU films, knows this all too well.
The most recent news, though light-hearted, brings the issues of being a major movie star to light. The topic at hand is Cavill’s facial hair. If you’re confused, read on to discover what you’ve been missing.
How it began
In a Variety exclusive, the publication noted that Cavill was simultaneously tied up with Justice League reshoots and principal photography for his new film, Mission: Impossible 6. Though not meant to overlap, extensive reshoots on Justice League have spilled over into his other obligations. That caused a hairy conundrum.
As Variety wrote: “[The] mustache he grew for his character in the Mission: Impossible sequel will have to be digitally removed in post-production. Paramount, which is distributing the Mission: Impossible sequel, would not allow Cavill to shave the facial hair while production was taking place.
