For a few quid, a razor could quickly get rid of Henry Cavill’s moustache. But the producers of Justice League have so far paid around $25 million to erase it from re-shoots of the upcoming movie.
It was previously reported that between making both Justice League and Mission: Impossible 6, Henry’s tache is causing a hair-raising headache.
Now the Superman actor has addressed the controversial growth, writing this hilarious post on Instagram:
Dear followers, it is time to finally set the record straight in this moustache fiasco. Pictured above, is not a set on MI6 but is in fact the latest in a series of weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity known as "Henry Cavill's Moustache". There has been no discussion over whether to shave or not to shave for the JL reshoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this despotic 'stache. It is not a question of IF I should shave – it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our own doom raining down upon us. #MI6 #JusticeLeague #HenryCavillsMoustache #HopeIsAllWeHaveLeft #MoustacheImpossible
The whole drama arose in the first place because despite filming having supposedly finished on Justice League, many of the cast (including Henry) have been recalled for reshoots.
However, it’s meant that Henry’s moustache has got caught in the crossfire between Paramount and Warner Bros, with the Mission: Impossible 6 producers refusing to let him shave off his facial hair, meaning it will have to be digitially removed from the Justice League footage.
