As we reported yesterday, news of expensive “Justice League” movie reshoots were overshadowed by reports that the mustache Henry Cavill has grown for his role in “Mission Impossible 6” is causing problems for his role as Superman, with Paramount Studios unwilling to allow him to shave off the facial hair to film the additional scenes needed for Warner Bros.’ superhero film.
Social media and regular media alike have weighed in on “Mustachegate”, with many suggesting Paramount and “Mission Impossible 6” Director Christopher McQuarrie are being difficult. “Surely it’s easier to use a fake mustache than to digitally remove one!?”
In exactly one year you’ll understand: The only way to keep a fake ‘stache on Henry Cavill would be a liberal dose of staples. #MI6 07.27.18

Christopher McQuarrie has tweeted his own thoughts on the matter saying, “In exactly one year you’ll understand: The only way to keep a fake ‘stache on Henry Cavill would be a liberal dose of staples.” When you think about the car chases, helicopter scenes and other fast-moving action scenes they’ve been filming for “MI6”, his comment makes sense.
Meanwhile, fans everywhere have been having fun with the idea of Superman sporting a mustache, with memes, photos and videos popping up all over the internet.
