“Nobody will notice this”

BACK IN THE summer, keen followers of the movie industry would have come across numerous news stories concerning Henry Cavill’s moustache and the drama it was creating.

It was reported that the director of Justice League (a film produced by Warner Bros) called him and the cast back in for extensive reshoots. Cavill was already committed to his role in Mission Impossible 6 (produced by Paramount), and they let him take part in the reshoots, but they wouldn’t let him shave off his moustache.

It was a battle between two massive studios, and one innocent moustache.

The solution was agreed that Justice League would digitally edit out the moustache in post-production.


Well, when the film came out last week, people could immediately see that it’s not an easy job to CGI away a full moustache

It wasn’t the success story that the studio thought it would be

And since then it’s become a rather brilliant rolling meme

People have tried their own hand at fixing the problem

Not bad.

Imagine if it had just stayed for some of the scenes

It is Superman, after all. He could definitely grow a tache in mere seconds.

Never mind Superman, the new Cavill had a better character in mind

It’s the sort of manic intensity you want in a partner

There is previous for this sort of carry on in the pantheon of superhero universes

It’s the gift that keeps on giving

Now people are just desperate to see how important this damn moustache will be when MI6 comes out

The moustache that launched a thousand memes.
