NOTE: This is NOT an April Fool’s Day prank.
ReelAnarchy.com has uncovered a photo showing us Henry Cavill with mustache as Superman.
As everyone knows by now, Henry Cavill was in the midst of filming “Mission Impossible: Fallout” for Paramount Studios, in which his character sported a fairly prominent mustache. The problem was, Henry was also being asked to film reshoots as Superman for the “Justice League” movie for Warner Bros. Cavill was expected to be able to finish shooting the sixth “Mission Impossible” film before needing to don Superman’s spandex again. That didn’t happen, which required Henry to jump back and forth from each production. Paramount would not allow Cavill to shave the facial hair while production was taking place, which meant the mustache he grew for his character in the “Mission Impossible” sequel had to be digitally removed in post-production… and it didn’t look good.
Now we have the following photo showing us what that looked like. As you can see, Cavill not only has the mustache, but there are also motion capture “dots” on his face, which were placed to help map the movement of his face for post-production removal of the facial hair.
It kinda grew up on me and liking Henry more with a moustache. Even my wife says it suits him well. It has an old school Hollywood feel to it. Tom Selleck would be proud.
I remember thinking he looked better with the scruff in Man of Steel too.
Not sure if this is April fools joke or not, but I really think they should have just solved the whole thing with the resurrection by having the Black suit and full beard.
Now that would have been plausible enough and the CGI moustache removal is explained at the very end.
I really don’t know what to say about this one.
