Superman actor Henry Cavill has been making news lately for his supposed mustache that he donned in the recent Justice League reshoots. The actor had grown it for his role in Mission: Impossible 6 which is filming now, but had to take a short hiatus from filming for the reshoots.

Since Paramount producers wouldn’t allow him to shave his mustache for the reshoots, Cavill had no choice but to keep his fuzzy upper lip while in the Superman suit. Instead, the mustache will be digitally removed in post-production. The original story was presented as something of a fiasco between two warring studios, but Cavill took to Instagram to set things straight:

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

How refreshing it is to see an actor handling some bad press with a little tongue-in-cheek humor!

While Justice League will be in theaters this November, people waiting to see a mustachio Henry Cavill in Mission: Impossible 6 will have to wait until July 27, 2018.
